This drive has become very unreliable. I have the 2TB model. I have had it a few days under a year now. It seems like every firmware update makes it worse. Here is the latest thing I notice… I use the drive as a backup for my security camera. It appears that the drive just stops responding to anything but ping every few days. One camera uploads movie files and another uploads JPG files. There are thousands of jpeg files which may be causing the issue. I disabled the media indexing function a few months ago because the drive kept locking up, but now it freezes when I try to view the folder containing the thousands of files, or sometimes for no reason at all.
The software is so messed up it thinks I updated to the last firmware before it was released:
Here is how often the drive locks up. Notice the missing folders correspoding to the missing dates:
The drive is not full, it says it still has 200gb left. Has anyone came up with a fix to make this a “dumb” drive? I just need an FTP/SMB server. I don’t need time machine, DLNA, whatever else it is loaded with. I just need a share. Any ideas?
