If your My Cloud Mirror is not configured, the software prompts you for your name and email address so that you can create or expand your WD My Cloud account. Once it's done setting up the My Cloud Mirror, the software gives you the option to install the WD My Cloud application which lets you access, upload, manage and share your files from home or on the road.
Drives can be easily hot swapped with the device still on, though the swaps are not completely tool-less as you'd have to swap over the screwed in stubs that slide along the internal rails. Plug in power, connect to your router, give it a minute to boot, and check network devices under Windows. In case your OS does not see the My Cloud natively, this tool can locate, configure, and even map shares automatically. I have a WD MyCloud EX2 and I run a Windows Server 2012 Essentials box as well as running a Synology DSM device.

I'm not sure that this is still the case with the WD2go service since I gave up on trying to get it to work a couple years ago.
Simply connect the network cable and power cord and, once its powered up, configure the device. Once you've accepted the EULA, the software searches the network, looking for any My Cloud Mirror devices. It can also place helpful shortcuts on your desktop and configure the Mirror so that firmware updates are automatically applied when they become available. I got a WD router a few years ago that also had a built in HD with access to the WD2go website, which i believe is the same as this My Cloud stuff.
If you have a DHCP server on your network and you know what IP the NAS is using, you can skip the next few steps and connect directly to the web menu.

As far as I can tell the WD cloud service scans the contents of the drive for copyrighted material and, if it finds any, makes the drive invisible to your account when you aren't accessing it on the LAN. So if you were thinking that this might be a great way to save your mp3s and movies on your own internet accessible hard drive I'd warn you that you may be very disappointed.
