I recently purchased a WD MyCloud 3TB drive to replace a failing 10 year old Maxtor network drive. Upon transferring the old data to the MyCloud drive, I realized that I needed another hard drive to serve as a secondary backup to the MyCloud hard drive. I decided the most cost effective solution was to purchase the WD My Book 3TB Hard drive with USB 3.0. This drive connects to the MyCloud Drive via its' USB 3.0 port.

The setup was simple and easy because the MyCloud software recognized the presence of the My Book hard drive and created a new Share folder. (I also turned off public access to the new share folder and only gave myself access using the MyCloud administrator software.)
To create automated backups onto the My Book hard drive, WD provides Acronis backup software, as well as creating Sharepoints via the MyCloud software. A Sharepoint is a snapshot of your data as per a moment in time. The only issue here is that creating a SharePoint for the first time can take days to create. This can be frustrating because, there is a greater potential of data and drive errors to occur. WD please fix this. (Tip: When running a SharePoint, make sure that the automated firmware update option is turned off.) Ongoing SharePoint updates should be completed more quickly, since they are incremental backups and not full backups.

Tip: For those who wish to access the My Book directly, you can use the windows software to map the drive instead.

Overall, I am quite satisfied with both the MyCloud and My Book hard drive solution. Accessing both of these drives is fast. They are both quiet and stay cool to the touch.

Final tip: If you are planning on heavy usage of these drives, purchase a rubber laptop chill mat and place the drives on top of the mat. The airflow will pass thru the drive's vents and keep the controller boards and drives running cooler.

Comments about WD My Book 3TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive, Black (WDBFJK0030HBK):

I purchased this external hard drive to back up my computer, especially the photos and documents. It was a good price, came very quickly, but I wasn't sure about the directions for installing. It came with a picture installation guide and no other directions. After feeling frustrated with my incompetence and not sure which installation choices I should make, I completed the installation and got the message that it was successful. But how do I know if it has really backed up my computer files??? I guess that's where faith comes in! Would have liked directions and some sort of written explanation of the installation choices (what they mean).
