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.

Works OK, found it a little hard to set up, may because of 3 programs wanting to save my data.

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

I bought this to use at home because between computers, iPads and iPhones, my busy family of four had content spread all over the place. This server was a little tricky to set up - it took me about an hour to figure out. But now I couldn't be more pleased. My family can access all of our photos and music on all of our devices, no matter where we are.

Pro and Con WD My Cloud

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

I'm a 1st time user of this. The setup was easy and straight forward. Drag and drop on the computer works fine. The 'Dashboard' is a generated page that has all your settings on it to customize ie: users, shared folders...etc.
To access it from outside your network you must go thru their web portal. I have not been able to connect directly to it from outside like I did my old server. If you want iTunes to be your server look for another device. this
will not work with it, although, I think it is an iTunes issue and not WD's. Also there seems to be some Javascript issues with this unit such as uploading from outside the network.

OK but with problems

By Jerome A.

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

I was looking for a central backup solution and media server for the LAN in my house. The LAN has two PCs running Windows, a PC running Linux, several IOS devices, a smart TV and an antique stereo system. The LAN uses both Wi-Fi and hardwired Ethernet.

The WD My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage does provide a central backup solution for the PCs. It streams video and music to the smart TV. The IOS devices can access the drive through the cloud. But there have been issues.

The first is security. I've been unable to get the PCs to backup to a private share on the WD My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage. As far as I can tell, the WD Smartware software installed on the PCs is not smart enough to log in to a private share on the drive to maintain a continuous or scheduled backup. So automated backups end up in a public share on the drive, and anyone, who attaches to my LAN, can browse through the PC backups. In trying to set up private shared on the drive, the drive reported "Share function failed" errors that could only be fixed with a System Restore that deletes all user passwords and makes all shares Public.

Another issue is DHCP, which is the default setting of the drive. WD's installation software use the drive's fixed IP address that the LAN router provided at the time it first joined the LAN. So when the router reboots and issues new IP addresses via DHCP, all the PCs on the LAN lose connection the WD My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage.

Would I recommend this drive to a friend? Yes, but with a bunch of caveats.
