Q & As

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well constructed item Disk unit great, accessed from various points abroad. Didn't find it slow when accessing from abroad. Manual instructions online are a bit of a let down 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable & Versatile I've been using this product successfully on a mixed home network of PC's, an iMac, iPads and iPhones for over a year. It was easy to set up straight from the box and once backups are configured the drive can be left to work automatically. Apple Timemachine worked without issues first time. The Apple iOS apps are an useful addition for backing up mobile devices, especially photos or for browsing backed up files on any of our devices. Build quality is good for a desktop external drive. 28 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does everything it's supposed to Having a Macbook Pro running on Yosemite I was worried about a previous review that said it didn't work with TimeMachine. Luckily mine runs perfectly with no setup glitches whatsoever. Time Machine even offered me the choice of backing up on my old Seagate drive and the MyCloud drive alternately! I can access everything on my Samsung TV and iPhone 6+ as expected. My only frustration is the speed of connection I can get with my PlusNet router. I can't get the 1gb connection to make the connection superfast so that video transfers are quicker. That's a router problem and not a MyCloud problem though. I'm very impressed with this storage device and it's ease of setup and use. Great gadget! 18 September 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Initial Impression Good Bought this to replace another network drive where one of the two drives had failed as replacement seems to make more sense than repair. Very easy to set up and transfer files. Have backed up to one of the connected network computers for security. Ordered Click & Collect and this worked well - the collection point (Welwyn Garden City store) needs more staff and a way of dealing with problem orders (not mine!) without causing avoidable queues. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WD MYCLOUD 2tb Only had the drive a week So far so good, connected drive to my router using an Ethernet cable, followed the set up instructions inc all appropriate software updates. Then proceeded to copy examples of videos, docs & photos to the drives. Installed appropriate APPS to iPhone & iPad I could then see these using my both devices on my network & away from my home, so copied what was required. Whilst well away from home I could see all appropriate files. However, I have discovered using a smart TV that I have not set the the directories up to stream direct to the TV. Have not used the disk for Time machine as this is done using other disks. The WD Disk was ordered on a Friday Afternoon & delivered to my local Waitrose store by 1pm SATURDAY Five star service. At the moment I still give this Five Stars though I question whether I should I have bought the 3tb or 4tb disk ? Will have to sort out the streaming of my videos. Was very sceptical at first about buying this WD drive because of previous reviews however I have confidence in John Lewis. 04 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by perhaps the most disappointing purchase ever What does this really do that the cheaper range doesn't do? If you are a Mac user then you will need a Mac formatted drive to do most of the things you're hoping this will do, such as share your iPhoto library. This can't be formatted for Mac. 29 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Incompatible with Time Machine! OK, it works with Mac if you just want to store files etc. However I have wasted hours trying to persuade Time Machine to use it for back-ups. Turns out the device is not supported by Apple for this application. I will be returning it. 06 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good introduction to a home NAS I would actually give it 4.5 stars if I could. Basically it works ... don't expect super fast performance - but at this price point very good. One important thing is to make sure that you plug it into a 1GB network ... BT Home Hubs only recently have more than one 1GB socket ( a switch can be obtained quite cheaply) - this improves the transfer speed by 10x. The tools used to maintain it are quite simple - but do the job. Streaming to a Smart TV worked first time. 09 February 2015
