WD Home Cloud - Can I store files in the cloud & delete them off my laptop?

Hi there,

Recently picked up the cloud storage device and already looks like a bad buy (I was hoping to use with my smart tv but I don’t think this is possible…my fault, I know). I have a question I’m hoping someone can help with - is it possible to have my files stored in the cloud, then delete them off my laptop so they are just stored in the cloud & I can stream from there? I have all the files backed up to a hard drive also but don’t want my laptop full of music & films.

Any help would be appreciated



Hi BobbyB84,

It is possible to stream video files from My Cloud Home using Plex. It is recommended to check below link for more information.
