I put all my photos since the 70s, all my music, videos and my kids firsts on my cloud. But I am now upset and a bit frightened I will loose it all. Half the time I can't even find the shortcut to the app. Then it either shows half of the files I have or wont let me open the files I find. I was very excited to get this and talked my husband into it. But now I am afraid I will loose things, I cant get back. So I try to do backups or archives. BUT I CAN"T ACCESS OR GET INTO MY CLOUD. Please fix whatever this is and make it run smoother. Please.More
No devices found
For people that are having trouble finding their device on RT: go to desktop, go to network (signal bars in taskbar), view connection settings, connections on the left, manage known networks, turn find devices on. 4 stars for no remote access.More
USELESS/WASTE OF MY TIME & MONEY!
WD CAN'T FIND MY NETWORK WHEN IT IS PLUGGED INTO MY INTERNET! I'VE SPENT 2 DAYS TRYING TO SET UP THIS THING! WASTE OF MY TIME! I'M GOING TO BUY A DIFFERENT EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE. I CAN'T RETURN THIS SINCE I OPENED IT SO I WILL SELL IT AT GARAGE SALE!More
Work When It Won't To.
This program seems to have a mind of its own. Meaning it works when it wants to. Most of the time it tells me that it can't find any WD devise on my network. When it is working it works well. But it is aggravating most of the time.More
Unlike others, the app actually found my cloud and scanned it. The problem is, only photos and videos that are in the public folder are shown. None of my music or movies that are in my own folder show up. What's the point?More
Useless if it can't find the device.
This App is useless. It can't find my WD EX4 device even though I can see it using WD My Cloud and I can see it using Explorer. Software competence at WD seems to be universally lacking. How about learning something from Dropbox guys? How about an app that will sync just one folder on a PC with the WD My Cloud? I'm sorry I dropped my cash on this junk,More
It won't work.
I can see MY BOOK LIVE but the app says the device needs an update, but the app is up to date. I downloaded an app from the PLAY STORE and the MY BOOK LIVE app found the device and let me access the device without any problem.More
Not very useful
It found my WDCloud but unable to properly scan itMore
"No devices found"
I have a MyBookLive on my home network. WD Smartware finds it and backs up no problem. MyBookLive shows up on the Windows network map and I can browse it/access files with no problem from any computer on the network. Mobile devices can access through WD My Cloud and WD Photos no problem. This app, however, says "No devices found". It is absolutely useless.More
Great App for My Book Drives
This is a very good app that extends the functionality of external WD drives. Turn on the File history feature in Windows 8, and you can access all your content easily from this app. This is not a file manager, but as a content viewer it works very well. 8/14 update: The App fails to load constantly and does not work reliably with network drives.More
