Tyler's Test System Specifications






The dashboard for the PR4100 gives an overview of the storage and health of the platform. To the left we can see available capacity and storage use categorized. Below we have network activity, users and apps installed on the PR4100. To the right we have device health and firmware update notifications.




WD allows you to setup groups and users from the menu above.




You can also setup shared folders in addition to the automatically created shares from apps.




The app store has grown slightly since our last look when we reviewed the My Cloud EX2.




To configure your mobile device to sync with the My Cloud platform, WD goes through a verification system that generates a one time code.




Backup options include USB, internal and cloud backups to several platforms.




The storage menu gives you access to change RAID modes and iSCSI services.




Supported RAID modes are listed above and include 0,1,5,10 and JBOD. You can also use spanning if needed.




The settings menu allows you to change the name of your NAS system on the network along with time and date settings. If you chose not to use the cloud service, you can disable it here for local network use. Further, you can customize sleep settings for both the NAS itself and the drives.
