Wd mycloud ex2 ultra

  1. Hi I am an artist working on large files I'd like to access from multiple locations. I don't understand if I have to actually download a file stored in the cloud to work on it, or if I can work on it directly from the cloud.
    Also, I was trying to load files onto the WeTransfer service directly from the cloud and the browser kept crashing! So basically I don't understand if the ex2 ultra is just a storage system or if I can work from it. The technicians at WD led me to believe I could work from it.

    Thanks for your help!

    The device is basically a local NAS with a public accessible interface for syncing locally.

    That means, it really should be treated as a storage device, not an active, local HD. IMO, I would use the Sync feature to keep my local HD synchronized to the NAS and not attempt to word/edit files directly on the NAS - - but that's just me.

    The bigger issue is your browser crashing - - which browser has this symptom, or do ALL browsers crash?

    BTW: How do you edit a file on the NAS using a browser?
