First, I am not certain if this was caused by the firmware update or not as I just noticed it yesterday.
I happen to notice that I now have 1024 Public and TimeMachineBackup folders on my EX4100 NAS. Public_1 all the way to Public_1024 with each folder having a copy of what is currently in my regular Public folder. The same holds true for the TimeMachineBackup_1 to TimeMachineBackup_1024 folders. When attempting to delete the additional folders the GUI interface hangs and does nothing. I let it sit for an hour once when I tried to delete a single folder and nothing happened. I finally refreshed the browser (Chrome) only to login again and see that the folder I was deleting (Public_10) was still there.
I have two questions.
Any quick way to delete all the additional folders at once as they are consuming a good chunk of my NAS at this time.
How do I keep this from happening again?
I am an IT professional of many years but am a noob when it comes to working with a NAS so any help\advice is greatly appreciated.
