I have a strang issue.
My personal share folder got deleted a few times and now one of my folders with multimedia was deleted from Public share space.
It is weird because I’m sure that only I am using this network drive. Fortunetly I didnt lost any unique data, but I have a problem to switch to WD MC as my only backup device.
Why this is happening ?
PS. I’m running firmware v04.04.01-112.
WD My Cloud 3TB
I don’t think *nix logs deletion by default. You could possibly install Inotify Tools to log future deletions.
You could try ssh into the My Cloud. Then look to see if the folders are really deleted.
Thank you both.
JAC70 - how do I install Inotify Tools ?
RAC - How can I connect vis ssh ? I’ve tried to connect by putty with ip address (static) and port 22, but connection was rejected.
Sorry for a noob questions. I know my way around, but this is my furst NAS device.
I don’t know if this is worth mentioning but I connect to my nas from few devices:
- Raspberry pi which is working as a server and saving downloaded files into WDMC
- Windows/Linux pc
- Android device
Thanks again !
Edit - RAC, I was able to connect - find out that you have to enable this in device settings. Folder is not visible in ssh also.
JAC70 - Inotifytools should be installed in command line, right ?
One last trick. When logged into the MY Cloud. Do a “cd /” command. Then you could do
“find . -name -print” If the folder exists this command should find it.
RAC - Good idea. I have performed a search as you have asked - even searched for files with wanted extension with "find . -name “*.extension” but no luck.
Folder got deleten somehow
Do you have any idea why, or how I can prevent that from happening again?
Nope. But would guess it has to do with any application that sync’s to different systems. Linux
would not delete a folder without being told to do so.
