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.

Everything I expected and more.

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

As a former WD engineer Western Digital (left WD in 1994) their HD drives have been my go to choice because of my knowledge of their quality policy and design practices. This 3 TB drive does not disappoint me. My surprise was the amount of software included on it (utilities and backup). This now becomes my 4th currently spinning external WD drive.

Western Digital 3 TB USB My Book

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

Everything seems to be functioning fine so far for the few backups I have done. I am still looking for the power off on switch - am I missing something here? I don't like leaving my items running 24/7 or using the ongoing backup feature. There is something loose rattling around on the inside like a small screw.

Lots of Space, Hard to Navigate

By AKG

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

My biggest complaint is that it's not user friendly for you to find the files on the external drive. I like to check every now and then to make sure that it is really backing up what it is suppose to be backing up and not go with blind faith. Tech help was very nice and walked us through the long way (which we had to write down for future reference since it was so complicated). There was a software issue so it did the initial backup but nothing more. So I am glad I knew how to double check. But again, the tech help was very helping to fix the issues. Since these initial issues, everything has worked great.
