I have just set up my new My Cloud EX2 Ultra 8TB device. Everything works fine. It will eventually replace some older Buffalo NAS devices I have.
However, the Buffalo devices have the ability to be woken up when the network starts up. I am in the habit of shutting down my network each evening, and starting up again the following day. This is a simple process when the NAS devices wake up when the network comes up.
However, I don’t seem to be able to do this with the EX2 Ultra. Further to this, when I powered it up this morning it immediately went into a file check process. This concerns me, as it appears I need to perform an orderly shutdown on the device prior to shutting down the network.
- Is there a way of getting the device to shutdown (or hibernate) with the network?
- What are the recommendations on powering down the device?
