I made the big mistake to upgrade to OS 5.
WD, Welcome to the group of companies that, in the name of the safety of their customers, have made sure that customers are disgusted by the use of their new products.
In the name of “security”, WD has created thousands of nonsense on the new operating system and Internet access.
I can’t access the transmission interface if I haven’t logged in to the NAS. So what is this nonsense, do I have to log in to my user interface every time to be able to access the transmission interface? Why is this transmission for me when I don’t have quick and easy access to it. Especially over the internet. For years, I added files to my transmission during the day, and in the evening, when I got home, they were downloaded. Now this is impossible. I need to remotely turn on a computer on the local network (which consumes electricity for which harmful emissions are generated) and then enter the EX2 interface and only then access the transmission interface.
Western Digital programmers are idiots and you couldn’t do it any harder. It’s as if you’re suggesting that I go from Paris to London, it’s safer to go through Dubai and Cape Town.
I do not have access to the user interface via the Internet with a port forwarding thoght router.
My NAS has always been after a microtic router that has a good enough firewall. And to access the interface for just a moment, I redirected some ports to go to my NAS.
And many other problems …
After updating from version 3 to version 5 I saw 30 gigabytes more free space on my NAS. Where have these 30 gigabytes been so far? My trash was empty.
These are the problems I discovered only 1 hour after my biggest mistake in 2020 - updating to OS5.
I ask the WD moderators to review these issues and provide a quick solution for Internet access or downgrade to OS3. These problems are only mine and all users. Otherwise, I and my clients over 50 will have to switch to Sinology or QNAP, they are more expensive, but everything works and there are no such problems.
