Hi there,

Try to run the application as administrator to see if this helps fix the issue. Were you able to install the application without any issue?

Yes, it installed ok i followed all the steps, When mentioned about Run as an Administrator you mean me or as a guest ? Anyway I’ve tried both and it happens, Is it worth uninstalling to reinstall ?.


I believe it is worth giving it a shot, perhaps it was a bad installation.

I have same issue ( WD Sync Service quit unexpectedly) on a Mac Mini I uninstall and install it back 2 times, and nothing change , any solution ? this issue do not happen on my Mac air.

What are the OS versions? Are the OS versions the same between the Mac Mini and the Mac Air?

Seems lots are having trouble with El Capitan and both the My Cloud and the WD software based on recent threads.

Mac Mini El Capitan 10.11.5 Mac Air El Capitan 10.11.4

Another problem with 10.11.5?
