    "Maybe" hold off!?

    So, I had an original WD MyCloud (2TB) NAS unit which had started to fail - had it +/-4 years and for the most part performed well - although I'm not sure how long they should last. At any rate, I went to my local BB store and was directed over to this unit - which I assumed was a newer (larger) upgrade - it said WD My Cloud on the packaging - and I bought it. Soon to find out, the WD My Cloud "HOME" and older WD my Cloud are two completely different drives. WD My Cloud is a NAS unit (Network Attached Storage) and in short functions like a network server attached to your PC. You need to setup users and can give anyone/no one access to any part of the drive (short version) The WD My Cloud "HOME" is (for a lack of better terminology) an supped-up external USB drive with cloud access. Immediate problem I see is limited shared access. We use Dropbox (a lot) and love the fact you can share "folders" across different users (again simplified). With WD My Cloud Home you could share a file but not pieces of a whole directory. Again, I'm over simplifying the differences but if you want a "personal" cloud drive that works like DropBox - THIS IS NOT the answer.

    Best bang for the buck

    Perfect storage box for personal data. Free space on my computer allowing it to function better. Pass word protection would be nice, but the o0pen portal allows family easy access for their own personal storage needs. also it is cheaper than paying for external cloud space.

    Trusty reliable backup for Time Machine

    I use this drive for Time Machine backups on MacOS. I like it, I also have a 4TB version that has been backing up my computers for a few years. This drive worked right out of the box, it was easy to set up.
