My laptop memory will soon be full.

Have bought a WDMyCloud external unit which I intended loading my photos and other new files direct to.

As far as I can see,I can only share files,meaning they are on both  the laptop and mycloud ?

This hasn't really solved my problem.

Is there a  setting which would send imported material straight to mycloud,so that it does not take up space on my laptop ?

It is my understanding that once you have copied your files to the WD icloud share you can delete them off your computer, thus saving you ' hard drive space' not memory as you stated.


To be sure pick a few pictures you wouldnt necessarily mind ' losing' if something were to go wrong.  ( you can simply get it out of the trash ) after you copy the files over to the icloud share.  Delete them off your computer.  Then check the share.  The files should still be there. (if not you can access the waste basket on your laptop and un'delete the file.)


Hope that helps.
