Are these Gen 2 do you know?
Do they tend to contain Red drives?
Curious about the drives in them

Looking at them, they're gen 1 like my other. Not sure what drives are inside
Thanks have just ordered the 4tb one and will hopefully keep my backups up to date as currently do them manually to a USB drive for my PC and phone.
Would this work with a PS4?
Tempted. Think you can plug a standard 2.5" usb external drive in and set up the WD MyCloud to copy/backup to it?
Is it true these use some non-standard formatting or encryption so in the event of a failure it’s not usable over direct SATA in a PC? That would be my concern with this.
Did the plex discount stop working on recertified drives?
Looks great!

I believe so
Does anyone know if you can set these to auto backup your photos from the phone rather than doing so onto Google drive? Thanks

It won't work like a normal USB hard drive that you connect for storage. If a PS4 can connect to a shared drive on wifi network then it might work, but I don't have a PS4.
Good find. Heat
What is the difference between this and mycloud home?

Nope. You need a external drive. Not a network drive

I believe so


So if for some reason it breaks, I can't just extract the driver, put it in an usb caddy and read what's inside like a normal external usb drive?
Arrives tomorrow. Will then copy all my music over from the NAS. Then I can access all my music at work. Good stuff.
I'm looking to set up a cctv system soon, I believe u can use 'nas' drives. Is this what this is?? Is it suitable to use this to record from 2x 5 mp cameras instead of a nvr?? Is it easy to set all this up (software wise). Complete noob when it comes to using these

Wd have special drives for surveillance systems. Have a look on their site.
These are OK out of the box, but they have some really badly written services (indexing, thumbnails, etc.) which run in the background and thrash the drives. You can easily disable them and turn the MyCloud into an incredible value for money NAS -- do a google search for "improve performance WD my cloud", and read up here for a start: seo-michael.co.uk/imp…ud/

My recertified 4TB MyCloud Mirror has been running for nearly 2 years now with no problems -- I've got all my music and movies on it, serving several KODI boxes around the house. Sweet.
