This is a re-post of my original post. My Cloud has performed flawless since this post.
I get 30mb/s transfer speeds
I get flawless streaming over the Internet to my android and ios devices
My Cloud has not disconnected one time
I backed up 300 GB in less than 2 days
It works better than I could expect.
The UI loads in about 5 seconds
Hello All. Ok here’s the deal I bought my cloud about 5 months ago maybe less. I take it out of the box set it up let it do all of the updates. Then I start backing up all my data to the drive approximately 250 gb mostly small files so my transfer speeds weren’t that great some times 16mbs/ all the way down to 1 kbs it never ran consistently constantly kept falling of the net work iphone app would connect sometimes and some times not. I was beyond frustrated so I decided to transfer all my files that took almost 2 weeks to transfer to the drive back off so I could smash the cloud with a hammer… Not really.
I decided I was going to do a full restore on the drive (i had tried the simple system restore to-no-avail) Well it took me another two weeks to recover my data then I did the Full Restore it took about 12 hours or more to do. I got everything set up users shares ect I started to transfer my files back (movies) I have 85gb it took one hour! I set up my phone apps they work flawless thumnail generation fast the difference in the operation of this drive is night and day. I had almost all the same problems everybody else had tried almost everything that was sugested nothing worked. This drive works better than it did out of the box my firmware is v04.00.00-607.
So my thinkng is this: The linux operating system combined with the automatic firmware up grade out of the box set some kind of confict with linux and the firmware. So if you buy a new my cloud set it up do the firmware upgrades then before you transfer any files to the drive do a Full restore so that the operating linux system can do what ever it needs to do to incorporate the new firmware. I just think theres a confilct.
I just wanted to update all who read this. It’s now been over a week and My Cloud has not disconnected from the network Not one time.
It seems my transfer speeds are getting faster I transferred a 40gb bluray disk from my computer to my cloud at 90mb/s.
IOS devices still connect flawlessly.
Android devices still connect flawlessly.
multiple connections while streaming still runs flawless.
Week 3 I still have blazing fast transfer speeds. And not one disconnects. Absolutely perfect performance across all devices.
It’s been over 1 month now and the my cloud has worked flawlessly no disconnects super fast transfers
I really believe this is the fix for the problems people have experienced with their drives.
