I have set this device up to do a continuous backup of my documents and pictures folders. This gives me two advantages:
1) Now that the initial backup is complete, whenever I add a files to these folders, it gets backed up to MyCloud automatically;
2) I can access any of these files from anywhere.

I bought this as a network attached storage device, and it is that. I can backup all of our computers on our home network easily. However, the claims of this being a "personal cloud" I think are misleading. Sure, I can get to the drive from my smartphone (once I installed the app), but it doesn't show all the folders on my share. They show if I access the drive from a PC on the network though. Strange. Also, accessing the drive from a PC outside the network (i.e., from the web) is not reliable. Actually, I have yet to get it to work. The local user interface dashboard is good, but all the rest of the interface (mobile app, web) is clunky to the point of I don't use it. Also, forget the backup software. I use FreeFileSync and it works perfectly.

Great Product

Comments about WD My Cloud™ 3TB Personal Cloud Storage:

Had reservations about this product after researching various websites. I've owned a number of WD drives over the years, and had consistently great results (longevity, ease of use, support). However, I was surprised to see a large disparity in user results. I eventually purchased this product, and was pleasantly surprised. This product was easy to install, works very well (only minor complaint is somewhat slow remote download speed), and easy to customize. I will add that prior to purchasing this network drive, I did upgrade my router, which allowed me to customize network/drive settings... I suspect a key to my user experience. There's plenty of reviews on other sites detailing this, so I won't repeat them here. Might give a 5 star rating if the drive had slightly better remote speed (I suspect this may be a function of a number of factors, not just the drive), and the drive lasts as long as my previous drives (tbd).

so far so good

Comments about WD My Cloud™ 3TB Personal Cloud Storage:

bought this to back up material from laptops and to enable two users to get material onto iPads.

setup was easy. plug it in and use the computer to acces the drive. add the router's code and you are in.

Ad the (free) app) from The Apple Store and you cab access the unit from an iPad, in my case from a second generation iPad. WD also provides "apps" to access the drive from wintel machines.

A promise is that one will be able to access the unit from areas not covered by one's network. This was a a major factor in deciding to purchase the drive. I have not been able to test that access yet so I'm unsure of how easy it is to do.

The manufacturer recomends using passwords at various points. Remember, the passwords for different functions are different.

very pleased and would advise people to check the product out.

Everythings great so far

Comments about WD My Cloud™ 3TB Personal Cloud Storage:

I've used WD products for a long time, all with great success and dependability. This one seems to fill that bill also. Of course, I'm in my first week of using it. I did have some difficulty distinguishing between the material in the box, the online setup stuff, and the how-to apps. I'm still sorting through some of that. It is easy to get started and the installation procedure is very good, getting up and running. WD needs to explain better some of the additional whistles and bells available. If you know what you want to use then the how-to's help out a lot. If you're exploring to find out what each application is about, get ready to read and search the FAQ's, etc.
In spite of all that, I love the drive, the ability to access my files, photo's, etc from almost anywhere.

Comments about WD My Cloud™ 3TB Personal Cloud Storage:

Purchased WD My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage, the drive was simple and easy to install, configure and use. Works perfect in my home environment, I have several Windows desktops and laptops, and a Mac OS laptop and it works flawlessly. It is great to just have everything in one place for all my devices... no need for USB cables. It does not matter where in the house you are with your portable devices, you have access to your files...

This was an excellent purchase and would highly recommended to all.
