WD my book live

Can you download files directly to the my book live? If you can, can you start the download with your PC  to the my book live then turn your PC off and your file continue to download?

Sorry mate,

You might be able to do that with third party application, but nothing that I can recommend since that procedure are not supported.

do you mean like torrents?

yeap, define “download”…

Ok for example:

  1. I get sent a PDF at work by email but I’m not allowed to store personal data on the work computers. Can I download it directly to the my book live at home?

  2. My daughter is at home and wants to watch a movie we don’t currently have on the my book live. While I’m out can I torrent the movie with my laptop and put it on the my book live with out the saving it to my laptop?

1: Not sure about the WD Apps. Have you tried them? If not, read the manual, as it mentions a couple of options, including FTP (not secure/encrypt though).

Otherwise, there are a couple of other options, but more advance.

Do it through wd2go.com.  It connects to your drive via the browser and works great.  It’s what I do in those situations.
