  • AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!
    Reviewed by Mark - April 7, 2019

    I have the previous MyCloud and was running out of space, so I decided to purchase a larger MyCloud Home. I had read the reviews, and hoped that the issues others were having were anomalies. I work in Tech. I even quizzed one of the staff at the Waterloo location before buying it. All I wanted was to sync my folders to a network storage device. I created the account with WD and installed the software. Then I right-clicked on a folder to sync it to the MyCloud Home. The folder now has an added syncing icon, but there is no way to determine how far along it is in the process, or if the process is even active. If I could return it, I would.

  • Not a good NAS
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Danobegood - November 15, 2020

    Not a very compliant NAS - really shouldn't even be called a NAS; it should be called a Limited File Sharing Device. SMB works for it's public share, but you cannot seem to transfer files via USB to the public share; you must use the network transfer process via SMB only for public access (DLNA, windows explorer, etc.). You cannot FTP, SFTP, SSH or SCP to this device. You cannot make private user files available in the public share location, nor can the user access public share files in the web interface to transfer files. If you want any of the functions of a typical NAS, this is not going to make you happy at all. Returning within 24hrs.

  • No Local UNC connection
    Reviewed by gwblok - October 5, 2017

    Nice idea, badly implemented. I can't map the drive from a computer, it requires you install their bloatware to use. I just wanted a large network attached hard drive so I could connect via UNC path (\\WDHome\public) to store files on for accessing from tablets, sonos, etc. This device does not allow that. It basically requires an internet connection to do anything. Why can't I pull up a local dashboard when I type the IPAddress in the address bar? Why can't I assign an address. I have a 3 year old WD Network drive, with WAY more flexibility. Its like their platform has gotten worse over time. Very disappointed in this new product line.
