No. The rest of us are left with what we purchased; a NAS, and we’re happy that the HDD is partitioned to maximise the amount of space available for data storage, and the minimal amount set aside for the operating system.
If you want to convert the MyCloud into a Linux box, why not repartition the HDD?
Ok understood that but at the WD website and in the internet, I can’t find any naming called “Gen1” and “Gen2”. My product is only called Single Bay MyCloud. How can I understand the difference?
