It's an ok app but would be a lot better if you could access private folders. There seems to be no way to do so. Even Kodi can access private folders if you put in the SMB access path along with the login info. But I need this app to do so as well to access private files remotely from outside the home network. No idea why Seagate would omit such an important feature. EDIT: While I do appreciate that Seagate replied to my comment, the solution they responded with is not the solution I want. I do not want to make the folder publicly accessible even if they are connected to my home network. What I need is an option within the app to login with my personal username to access the private folder only with that login.
Avoid at all costs. The most useless cloud hdd ever. 4 months of use and not one successful backup. Tried on 4 different computers and 3 new phones.Had it professionally installed but never works. Anything would be better than this , majority of feedback and reviews support my assessment. Seagate i would like a refund please..
I purchased the Seagate 4TB NAS as a replacement to my WD EX2. Apparently the reviews were good and all. However I'm facing the issue by using this Mobile app. I don't see any folder expect the PUBLIC folder. No matter in connect with WiFi or Cell data, I only see Public folder. What's the point of the mobile app then.
It seems to work fine on my mobile & tablet but not attempted to use away from home yet so can't comment on distance communication. My only negative experience so far is that it fails to find 1 or 2 videos that are on the Personal Cloud & for some reason, holds and maintains old file names that have been amended on the cloud, even after cache cleaned & even after app uninstalled then reinstated. On the laptop, the filenames are correct. Other than that, I'm happy with the app. Update: Following advice from Seagate, my files now as should be. Thanks for the help & advice.
NOT FOR SAMSUNG S8+. This app always crashes when watching video from the Seagate hard drive. Better to download video and the view. It world be very convenient if the app did not crash with Samsung S7 S8 S8+ and other pda device. This app will require the restart of device once one video is very difficult to view. The Wi-Fi signal is degrading.
Pretty useless sadly. Cheaply made and poorly laid out app. Searching for content is not intuitive and app does not seem to follow material design at all past the basics. Considering they're in the storage business, they don't make it very easy to organise and access your stuff. Photos won't even display, only the file names. Viewing the photos just gives me a blank screen. Failed at the first hurdle. Shame.
Bug fixes and improvements.
