I'm having problems mounting my WD Mycloud - here is what I've entered so far... What am I supposed to do next?

Current Version WDMyCloud v04.05.00-315
Linux Ubuntu 17.04

$ sudo mount -o rw,soft,intr,nfsvers=3* /home/ashleyd72788/Desktop/"Media Server"
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting*

In Nautilus, type CONTROL-L to show the pathbar.

In the pathbar, type:


and press Enter.

Enter your WD login id and password to connect.

This will mount the network drive.

  • Awesome - I was able to access the folders. I am ultimately trying to set up my plex media server to pull from mycloud. Do you know if I can have my files automatically move to the cloud? I tried moving my media server folder to the nfs folder but it said there wasn't enough space (the cloud has 3tb avail)

  • sshfs is an alternative to nfs and uses the ssh protocol. If you want to mount the remote the network drive to a local mount using sshfs, see help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHFS. This may allow the plex server to read and write to the network drive.

  • If this worked for you, accept this answer, and post a separate question do help with automatically backing up / copying your files to WD.
