let’s talk a little about a “before buy” rather than a “before I pack and return”, please.
I would like to buy WD My Cloud Mirror device to be used as a RAID 1 backup solution for my photo (I’m a photographer and I need a mirrored backup for all my RAWs+worked JPEGs).
I would like a synthetic description of the status of the indexing issue, as I think it will kill the device once I tranfer on it my thousands of GB of photos. As we are speaking of a device that costs some hundred dollars, it would really make me furious to discover that is doesn’t work for such a simple usage and stupid problem (while my hard earned money have really gone).
As far as I have understood the performance and lock-up problems are all due to the indexing service that wildly runs on the device for each and all directories. It was possible to manually fix the problem using SSH and disabling the useless services but for some reasons WD staff decided that that was not to be done and removed the command/doesn’t allow to connect as a root to the device anymore?
And it hans’t come up with a solution of its own to the problem up to now?
Let’s ignore the idea about voiding your warranty by removing or installing services on a NAS…
Is this all right or I have missed something?
With these premises, should I really buy one of their NAS?
Thanks in advance
