Answer:
From what I can see, this is pretty locked out but it does come with a few services preinstalled (Plex, IFTTT etc.)

Answer:
You could but it would be of limited value. It is not designed for local storage. It wants to be a Cloud device.

Easy. Plug it in to power and an Ethernet connection. Download the WD my cloud app on your PC and log in to administer the device.

Answer:
Like the other MyCloud drives, you access this primarily through either UPNP or SMB. It's best to enable both protocols, unless you know you have a specific reason not to do so. It really comes down to the devices you'll use to access it, and what they're most happy using.

Answer:
If I remember right I did create an online account. To my knowledge this unit cannot be used like a conventional NAS. A Public folder will be visible on Windows Explorer within which you can store files or create sub-folders. Unlike a NAS you don't have complete control of the drive.
