Hi !

I got the 4tb WD My Cloud with firmware v04.01.03-421. I do a full backup of my C drive to my WD My Cloud, it completes successfuly and it also validates the backup…

When i try to restore that backup to the same C drive using either from Windows or from recovery CD, it tells me my backup is corrupted…

Any REAL solution to this? I used google to find solution and the only one i found was to copy my backup files from the My Cloud to a USB drive… Which is not convenient at all!


I bought that fkin WD MY CLOUD for backup purposes to find out its not working as intended…


Thx for helping! War thunder german tank tree.
