So I had close to 1TB of movies/tv shows on my WD TV Live Hub, and it was all backed up on an external hard drive. Recently I had to reset the HD, so I’ve spent the last two days copying everything from the WDTV to the HD. Then, literally the same hour after it got finished, something happened on my WDTV where it started freezing and I had to unplug it. When it came back on, the whole thing was wiped clean!! I’m ready to scream! So now I have to copy everything from the HD back onto the WDTV.
The problem is, it won’t let me copy anything. When I’m picking the place to copy a folder to, under “internal storage” in the Files part, it just pops up with a thing saying that there is no content in this folder. Yeah, no sh*t. But it won’t let me add anything into there, it won’t even give me an option to create a new folder.
A couple things worth noting:
- I have already gone into the Settings and done a Device Reset, hoping to fix these issues, but it didn’t.
- Even though all of my videos are gone, there were a few of my own photos that I’d loaded up to use as backgrounds, and they are still there. Not under the main menu’s Photos, but when I go into the settings under User Backgrounds, they’re in there. So it somehow didn’t do a total factory reset I guess.
- I used to be able to go under System to Disk Manager and see how much space I still had left. There was a box that said total storage and how much used. Now, there’s nothing there. I expected there to be something that said there was 0GB used or something. I thought at first it was an error of the machine, but no, when I plug in a flash drive, a box for that shows up in there.
What do I do??
