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.

I am so mad at myself for not doing more research on this product before buying it. My "My Book" is suddenly not discoverable by my iMac!! Apparently this happens OFTEN and people loose their entire backups.

Good size at a good price

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

I bought this 3TB hard drive as a backup for our Mac. The price was very competitive (now that the 4TB model is available), and setting it up for Mac protocols was simple. Don't bother buying the hard drive version that is pre-setup for Macs, as the Apple instructions for doing this yourself are simple and easy to follow.

The drive is fast and fairly compact. My one criticism so far is that it could use a broad base stand as an accessory - without one, it's easy for an errant dog to snag the cord and pull it over! (I know this from personal experience with one of my other backup drives...)

WD 3TB

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

Works great right out of the box, installed it with no problem, the price was right, it immediately backed up all my files and registered me with the company, I have loads of music and video files, that I just can't lose to viruses
Staples gave me a good price for a 3TB external hard drive.
when this goes on sale again I strongly suggest that you purchase it.
