Comments about Western Digital� Hard Drives; My Cloud� Personal Cloud Storage, 3TB:
The My Cloud drive works well as a network drive. The setup of the Smartware backup software did not work because it could not recognize the drive on the network even after much technical support from Western Digital. After changing multiple settings on the Trend Micro firewall software and even after disabling the Trend Micro software Smartware still didn't recognize that the drive was connected to the network. All other programs found the drive easily and it was mapped on the PC okay too.
Using other backup software the My Cloud drive is an excellent backup drive for all PCs connected to the network.
The drive hasn't been used as a Cloud drive on the internet so I don't know how that service responds.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
