I received a WD myCloud NAS as a present (an asked-for present) to form the basis for a home network storage area. The main item I was planning to put on the NAS are my ever-growing multiple iPhoto libraries. I selected the myCloud based on several good MAC-oriented reviews. Now as I dig deeper I'm seeing statements that iPhoto cannot have its files on a NAS because iPhoto requires that the physical storage of the library be on an OS X filesystem, and possible also a local one at that. So what the heck - is this true, and if so why, and is there some work-around? My plan was to put all of the iPhoto libraries (five of them) out on the NAS and access them from various OS X laptops and iMacs around the house.
