Picked up a 4TB for a great price but the performance is quite disappointing. Looking for any advice for improvement before I decide to return this if nothing improves.
Remote Access is not working due to Java 7 issues as noted in the forum. (no fix from WD)
Requires My Cloud Desktop for access, which seems to have embedded Apple code (bloatware).
Twonky Media Server is very slow (Indexing and browsing), with limited settings under port 9000
Twonky Online simply refuses to connect after successful registration (??)
Buggy WD s/w for USB 3.0 support, cannot dismount attached USB drive. Unplugging locked up My Cloud, requiring a power restart (not a good thing for any Linux server).
No Backup s/w found, do I have to pay WD for the backup s/w? (d/l version is Trial)
Fast gigabit networking under Windows shares (best thing so far)
USB 3.0 copying to seed media folders is pretty fast (just cannot dismount after)
Fast file transfer when using 3rd party Sync s/w to seed the media files (much safer but slower than USB)
Nice low power efficiency 4w idle to about 10w operational (compare to PC running FreeNAS)
