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.

MyCloud

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

This gadget is easy to set up. Great item. The interface runs on Java so Mac users need a bit more technical skills to set up the browser preference. In sum, you can have your own Cloud for yourself and control the access.

Awesome product.

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

Was using Dropbox and Google Drive. But, after seeing this and having all of my data available remotely but the device at home and being able to backup to a device for disaster recovery; this was a great option to select.

I have even recommended this to my clients so that they can feel better in storing and accessing their data from anywhere.

I recommend this product to anyone that is needing their data stored locally but accessible from anywhere.

Equipment Works Fine. Cloud Access ???

By Mike

from North Carolina

Verified Buyer

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

The equipment is fine. Set-up was very easy. Access from home network always works fast with gigabit router. Access from other spots now works, but it went down for 10 days and WD never told users what the problem was. Spent a lot of time reinstalling and doing other things to try to get it going - but the problem was not with my network. Had to look on line at WD Forum to see what other users were experiencing. So, I would say support was lacking. Finally received an apology email after everything was back up and running well. I would say WD learned a lesson and the same problem will likely not happen again. That's the silver lining. I like the equipment and the ability to access my files from anywhere.

Personal Cloud Experience

By 3TB Cloud

from Office

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

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

For the most part, this device has work very well for backing up my 3 office computers. The system will back up files at specified times or in real time, which is what I use.

I have had the Cloud stop working about once every week or two and stops any backups at all. I have not found out if it is due to Windows updates or the WD cloud just stopping. If you reboot the computers, the system starts up working just fine again.

I have not had the chance to use the actual cloud feature at this point. I currently have access to Dropbox, and have been very busy. I hope to try using the actual cloud portion in the near future. I hope this will allow my employees to use our Samsung Galaxy Tab when working in the field and be able to pull the files or save files when they travel. I am trying to move our shop more towards the digital age and away from so many paper formats, but we work in the Aviation field, and the Government requires more paperwork than we use to use!

Overall, I have had generally a good experience with this system. One advantage is that instead of using an offsite backup service costing $75 - ??? per year, after the initial cost of this unit and with more storage space than online versions, it will save money down the road.

OK but setting up backups not so easy

By DaleB

from Dubuque, IA

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

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

I had no problems getting the WD My Cloud set up on the network and available for backups. However, it was not intuitively obvious how to set up computers for automated backups. You have to do a bit of searching to find out that you need to download some different software for that - WD Smartware. I find Smartware to be rather "clunky".
