Have you ever had your computer crash? Have you ever had a flood and lost your electronics that were sitting on the floor? I’ve experienced both in my lifetime. I’ve even experienced losing a back-up drive to my computer due to a flood. Crazy right?? Even being prepared with a back-up drive did me no good when the rains came tumbling down. The bad news for me was that my backup drive was directly connected to my computer. It wasn’t connected to an internet source. Just a direct connection to my computer. And it went bye-bye the same way my computer did. Oy!!
Losing your computer files is such a crazy feeling. Do y’all realize how much we are online now as a society?? Camera apps, photo apps, tablets, phones, laptops, netbooks. We have ways to literally stay connected to each other 24-hours/day. Do you remember when the internet first came out and we had dial up connections? I think I was in junior high when we first got AOL and the internet. Heck, I think AOL was the internet back then. In order to connect to the internet, you had to take over your phone line (unless you were fancypants back then and your computer had it’s own phone line…LOL) and wait for that high pitch screeching sound to end and the high pitch ding ding ding sound to start to know you were officially “online”. Those were the days.
I’ve lost 2 different sets of computer files as an adult. And it’s devastating. Having a personal cloud storage device would’ve totally saved me in both cases, but I didn’t know about clouds back then. I don’t think clouds even existed back then. LOL But they do now!! And….I’ve got my very own Cloud!! I can now sleep peacefully at night knowing that My Cloud is syncing files for me. Saving a proverbial copy.
My Cloud is from the brand WD. It’s got 3 TB cloud storage and it’s got plenty of space to backup all of our devices. I can keep doing what I do and it just does what it does by saving it all for me. The set-up was fairly easy. I did get a bit confused once I got it online and figuring out what all needed setting up and which things needed passwords. But once I figured it all out, it was smooth sailing and My Cloud started a backup. All-in-all, I think it took me about 20 minutes in total to set it up.
The 3 TB My Cloud retails for $179.99. It also comes in 2 TB ($149.99), 4 TB ($219.99) and 6 TB ($319.99) options. They come with a 2-year limited warranty and is compatible with Windows® 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 or Windows Vista®, Mac OS® X Yosemite, Mavericks™, Mountain Lion™, Lion™, as well as DLNA®/UPnP® enabled devices.
The other really cool thing about having your own Personal Cloud Storage?? You can access your computers content from anywhere there’s an internet connection. Whoa!
So I know you want to go out and get one of your own Personal Cloud Storage devices from WD! Purchase your own device to see how My Cloud simplifies your digital mess so you can experience and create more!
