i just bought a 2T mycloud NAs and i have a few questions. First of all accept my apologies for any errors as I am not English mothertongue.
Context: i bought the NAS to do backups of my PC (Win7 + WIN XP) and to access documents and multimedia without turning PC’s on.
So i created a couple of accounts with private shares (me and wife’s) and setup tha advanced smartware backup (selecting relevant folders). I didn’t use / native bakup simply because I didn’t know how it work. When the NAS finally ended doingthe backup of the 100k+ files and 400G+ of spage i noticed that all the docs were not directly available under my share, but nested in a series of directories like that:
Myshare NAME\ WD Smartware.swstor\My PC name\volume.sfsdfsdf.23423423.ffwe3f\Users\My WIN Username\finally relevant folder.
is it possible to shorten the path to my folders? i don’t want to open 4 layers of subfolders before accessing my data.
In addition to that, should i stick to Smartware or swith to win7 native bakup analysis or other software?
il it possible to have a “dropbox like” sync of documents via smartware? i.e. i edit a document on my pc and i get the same edits on the NAS 8wherei hopefully can retrive also an older version of the document itself) .
I would like also like to attach an external drive to the NAS: can i use the same softeare (smartware?) to use it as a backup of the nas itself?
