      Product information
      The multitalented Western Digital My Cloud gives you a cloud storage of your own – save all your important files and documents and access it anywhere using PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.

      Full storage convenience

      The WD My Cloud drive offers a colossal 4 TB of storage space, ample room for a library of photos, music and videos. My Cloud allows you to keep all your content in one safe place on your home network instead of a remote server – the perfect way to centralise yours and your family's media.

      You can access your stored files by downloading WD's free apps, which in effect enable you to expand your tablet and phone storage by uploading photos and videos straight to your personal cloud.

      A USB expansion port even enables you to connect another USB 3.0 hard drive to the My Cloud drive for added storage capacity.

      Super security

      With automatic backup you can rest assured that your files are safely protected. You can backup data from all the PCs and Macs in your home, with everything securely backed-up on the network.

      A selection of flexible backup options allows you to save and back up in a way that suits you. PC users can utilise the WD SmartWare Pro to choose how, when and where you backup your files, while Mac users can enjoy full use of the Apple Time Machine to protect data.

      What's more, you can add another layer of data protection by automatically making a second copy and a safepoint on your My Cloud home or remote network, so you have complete peace of mind.

      To keep data safe you can protect your cloud storage from unauthorized access with password protection, available for all users.

      Rapid performance

      The Western Digital My Cloud can be up and running in minutes - WD's simple user interface and web guide make for a seamless set-up process.

      Once up and running, you can transfer data and access content quickly thanks to Gigabit Ethernet and dual-core processor.

      Media streaming

      Stream media content to your connected TVs, media players, consoles and other DLNA certified devices from the Cloud External Hard Drive. With My Cloud's iTunes server you can stream your music library to any PC or Mac with iTunes.

      Files can be transferred between cloud, Dropbox and other cloud accounts with WD's free My Cloud mobile app.

      File storage has never been easier with the secure 4 TB Western Digital My Cloud External Hard Drive.

      No longer works - absolute rubbish, failed within 3 months. If I was back in the UK I would switch it off and return it. As it is, it has been reset several times and just crashes - one of my worst purchases

      Not much to say. Well built. But Complicated and not helped by over complicated instructions. If like me you just want the safety of baking up your photos, go for something else that is easier to figure out.
      Expensive compared to other devices
      Extremely slow.
      Loses software, ie the dashboard drops off your PC.
      Over complicated instructions.

      I wanted something to back up all our devices but mainly my work files from my macbook. Set up was not straight forward, mainly due to length of cables in relation to the sockets in my house. Guy in store said cables were probably 2 or 3 metres - they were 91cm. It took a while to figure out and kinda worked well.
      Likes to drop signal a few times and doesn't work (for me) over wi-fi extender. I have to connect to the hub direct to back up - not what I really wanted, but stuck with it for the capacity and the fact I lost receipt.

      It lets you access from anywhere
      Accessing the dashboard over the net is painful. The WD president has jut issued an apology this week regarding this.
