WD MyCloud + Time Machine

Experienced an issue with a WD MyCloud drive & Mac OS 10.12 Sierra backing up to the drive via Time Machine.

The backup failed with the error “Resource temporarily unavailable”.

I rebooted the MyCloud drive and the same issue occured. I noticed there was a firmware update 04.04.05-101.

Applied this and it fixed the issue.

Here are the release notes to the firmware fix.

Firmware Version 04.04.04-101 (09/20/2016) Resolved Issues:  Resolved issue where macOS-10.12 user is unable to create a new Time Machine backup

If your firmware version is using 2.x it has been fixed with 2.21.119 (09/20/2016)

Remember to update to the correct firmware depending if you are using 2.x or 04.x
