Format time

Just reformatted the drives on my MyCloud Miror (same should be true for the MyCloud EX2 as they are basically the same). A full format of both volumes (2x 4 TB WD Red drives) - not a quick format - took 24 hours!!!

Just sayin’…



We don’t have a specific time for the unit to perform the restoration. However, it shouldn’t take that long.

It’s not recommended to stop the unit while performing the factory restore as it may damage the device.

Before you try anything else, please contact WD Support for direct assistance.

Well, it’s completed now and everything is fine. I did wipe the drives while they were formatting, so I’m guessing that’s what took so long.
