Most helpful reviews

Phil, Worcestershire

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Access to your information any time anywhere
Bad points:
The setup is mind boggling and far from intuitive. WS support is totally inadequate and they merely point you towards their online advice that you've already trawled through to no avail.

From reading the many forums it is clear that the setup issues are common and appear to have been ignored by WS

Eventually after a resetting for the third time mine completed the setup successfully and it works fine but it certainly was not worth the hours of struggling and I certainly would not recommend this product at all.

Robert, Oldbury

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Once set up you just forget it as it automatically backs up your work, and the nice thing is that it will also backup your other devices. No matter which device you are using it is possible to get to any saved item from all devices.
Bad points:
Not being a techy I had a problem in setting it up in the first place so had to phone WD's help line, had an excellent member of customer services who talked me through all stages and was then set up.

Not possible to fill it via its usb. Has to be done via network as per pure NAS functionality.
Confusing to know which desktop app. to download. The obvious one is not the right one!

Manufacturer's Description

The versatile Western Digital My Cloud External Hard Drive offers you a cloud storage solution of your own – save all your important files and documents and access it anywhere using PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.

Complete storage
The WD My Cloud drive offers a colossal 3 TB of storage space, ample room for a library of photos, music and videos. My Cloud allows you to keep all your content in one safe place on your home network instead of a remote server – the perfect way to centralise yours and your family’s media.

You can access your stored files by downloading WD’s free apps, which in effect enable you to expand your tablet and phone storage by uploading photos and videos straight to your personal cloud.

A USB expansion port even enables you to connect another USB 3.0 hard drive to the My Cloud drive for added storage capacity.

Full security
With automatic backup you can rest assured that your files are safely protected. You can backup data from all the PCs and Macs in your home, with everything securely backed-up on the network.

A selection of flexible backup options allows you to save and back up in a way that suits you. PC users can utilise the WD SmartWare Pro to choose how, when and where you backup your files, while Mac users can enjoy full use of the Apple Time Machine to protect data.

What’s more, you can add another layer of data protection by automatically making a second copy and a safepoint on your My Cloud home or remote network, so you have complete peace of mind.

To keep data safe you can protect your cloud storage from unauthorized access with password protection, available for all users.

Fast and easy
The Western Digital My Cloud can be up and running in minutes – WD’s simple user interface and web guide make for a seamless set-up process.

Once up and running, you can transfer data and access content quickly thanks to Gigabit Ethernet and dual-core processor.

Media streaming
Stream media content to your connected TVs, media players, consoles and other DLNA certified devices from the Cloud External Hard Drive. With My Cloud’s iTunes server you can stream your music library to any PC or Mac with iTunes.

Files can be transferred between cloud, Dropbox and other cloud accounts with WD’s free My Cloud mobile app.

The secure 3 TB Western Digital My Cloud External Hard Drive makes file storage and file access easier than ever.
