Disconnection from the internet destroys Twonky settings

Hi there.

I have a share DINDONG and set mediaserving for this share to ON (via the Dashboard )

In that share are 3 folders: Muziek, Foto’s and Video’s.

In Twonky in the Sharing part I’ve set:

/DINDONG not to be scanned

/DINDONG/Muziek to be scanned for Music

/DINDONG/Foto’s to be scanned for Photographs

/DINDONG/Video’s to be scanned for Videos

Now when for some reason my WDMyCloud gets disconnected from the internet (I know this because of the warning mail I receive) the sharing - scanning setting are set to /DINDONG for all sorts of data and the re-scan that has been started isn’t fully executed . I see this in the Twonky status part, the numbers of found Videos, Music and Photo’s aren’t correct.

I’m on the laters version v04.01.03-421.

Is this a bug? Why are my settings destroyed? What’s the use of doing a re-scan just because the internet connection has been lost for some time (even after 60 seconds)?

Best regards,


Yes, MyCloud restarts destroy Twonky settings.  It’s due to the poor integration of Twonky into MyCloud.

I give some workarounds here:


Ideally, WD would do a better job of integration, but I see no willingness on their part to do this.

It’s also a good question to ask why the MyCloud restarts if internet connection is lost.

If you think the integration of Twonky should be improved, vote for this idea:
