Yep same here. In Australia. Happened exactly at 7.10am on Thursday morning Western Australia Time. I was actually watching it go from blue to yellow led. Was odd so logged in and found it reset.
No idea why but too to a mates and all that he had was rphoto. All the data is there but no file or folder names so that was hard to use given there’s 1000`s of files
Have taken to a pro who’s looking at it now with R studio and he said he’s found superblocks…
Then I saw this just now I’m not the only one! I thought it was me.
I did see logs on my virus firewall showing an increase in attacks in the last few days on that device but didn’t do anything. Was going to disconnect remote access but then this happened before I got the chance.
Pissed but my bad with only backups of partial docs and photos items but lost all my iTunes library and video library.
Feel stupid but definitely expect more from WD.
Is it even worth opening a support ticket？ the unit is 9 years old
