Western Digital My Cloud Home



  • @JohnnyboyGo : No it's not the same. P:\ is mapped manually by myself to the public folder of the cloud.

    @ admin : With Share/NAS, i can see and connect to the public folder of my cloud. That means that i can synchronize files from my computer to the public folder of the cloud.
    But i want to synchronize files to the private folder.

    I use PLEX to listen my music on my phone.

    PLAX is able ton access on my cloud (but on the private folder) when my computer is off.

    It's for that i want to synchronise my music that i have on my computer with my private software on the cloud.

  • I mean click Share/NAS-->Add share or NAS device and enter the credentials of your private cloud, did you try that?

  • I have message : Failed to access the network path, pls check if your username password and network are correct.

  • Can you tell me the difference between the public and private area? Does the private area require a password while the public area doesn't?

  • Private area seems only accessible using MyCloud.com, the mobile app and the Desktop app. It's also accessing from Windows as a  mapped etwork drive using WD Discovery Desktop App.

    Public area is a single network share but it's not accessing from outside

    I found documentation form Western Digital : https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=20565&s=

  • Accessing the Private User Space from Windows or macOS as a
    mounted ( mapped ) network drive must be accomplished using WD Discovery
    Desktop App for My Cloud Home.

    I think that's why Backupper cannot access the private area.

  • Yes, but i tryed with some other softwares (godsync, Free File Sync, SyncToy, Cobian...)and they access. All of them show my X:\
