I have a 3TB unit since a year ago as home backup system for 6 computers. It has never worked great but backups were properly done and our music centrally available.
Since about a month ago performance has degradated seriously to the point that backups were not happening. When i realized, I searched for options in the forum but foundnothing. I did the 40s reset in case it was a config problem. Not a good idea. The system is so slow that I have not been able to configure it again after more than 20h! I’ve been able to do a few things -open the ssh, setting up the Twonky server-.
Now I’m not able to enter in the web scorecard, so I cannot configure Users or shares. The window just shows a blank scorecard with the message “Initializing device” for more than 24 hours …
I’m able to log as root thru ssh, but I’m not a linux expert, although I’m comfortable enough with it.
Thanks in advance for your help
BTW, I sent a message to WD support 2 days ago, but no answer so far
BTW2, Was i too optimistic thinking that a prestigious company like WD would deliver decent quality products?
