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.

Western Digital 3 TB MyBook

By BitBasher

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

I bought this 3 TB MyBook to hold offline backups of files on my desktop and laptop computers. I have had good luck with the MyBook products, having used a 1 TB MyBook for several years as online supplemental storage, with no problems.

On my Win7 Pro system, the 3 TB drive was recognized immediately. No software to install. A free custom version of Acronis True Image is available but I did not explore this as I'm already happy with another backup program. My first use of the new drive was to do an 8-hour, 400 GB backup which went off without a hitch.

There is no warranty form to fill out and no prompt during installation to register the product, but you can do this online. If you haven't done ths before, you can sign up at the "WD Support Portal" at

Great HD Backup

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

This is a great drive for all my videos I have taken. I will be using it as an archive drive to store all my old videos and important files. This will free up alot of space on my other Western Digital drives that continue to work for over 10 years. This new drive has a nice design, has good ratings, and I was able to purchase it at a great price. I will be using it to back up my PC files and had no issue getting it up and running. I will recommend this hard drive to all my friends and business associates. I would purchase this item again.
