  • doing the job I bought it for
    Verified BuyerReviewed by justme - August 7, 2021

    set up was easy, I did not set up the MyCloud internet option because I am using it as a home server and have no need to access from outside my LAN. I've had some hiccups with an error transferring large files (~1GB) but I'm not sure if the problem lies with the WD NAS or my HP LapTop. rebooting one or both has cleared the error. I have not gotten around to backing up files from my Lenovo desktop yet to see if the problem arises with it. both are running Windows 10. I set up a a RAID 1. tried to hang a 2TB external drive, but it did not like it at all (might be because it was set up as JBOD VS the RAID 1 of the WD NAS)

  • EX2 Runs Great, But Drive Must Be Mapped to PC
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Bill610s - October 18, 2020

    So far, mechanically/electronically it works fine. I've managed to get all of my data loaded by mapping the drive to my laptop file directory. My only beef is that this is unlike the other great WD external hard drives, in that the instruction manual (download) and the quick set-up instructions (in-box) are too basic and other documentation is not helpful for anyone less than an engineer. If you use a PC, you are going to need to Google on mapping your EX2 to your computer file system. After completing that, it's easy. But nowhere does it tell you that this must be done.

  • Worked just like I needed.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by DadKing - March 26, 2020

    I purchased this for use in a small office where 5 or 6 people need access to it, both in-office on the network and outside the office over the internet. It took a little bit of work to get that all set up. Interestingly enough, the cloud portion was easier than the in-office network stuff. Inside the office, Mac users saw the device right away but Windows users did not. I was able to resolve that by mapping a drive and "forcing" a connection on the Windows machines. I don't think that's an issue with the drive, though - I think that's a Windows issue. Good price for a good amount of storage. I have had to reboot it a couple of times when cloud users were unable to connect, but that was quick and easy to do.
