There’s a MyBookWorld monitor icon that appears to actdually be a folder or something that contains two subfolders called Download and Public. then there’s a hard drive icon called MyBookWorld-Backup.
All the files I am using on the netdrive are going into the Public folder. Why is it called Public and how do I change that?
I don’t know if these are drive partitions, folders, or…who knows what. The documentation calls them “shares” which totally baffles me. What is a “share”?
How do I remove the backup partition (if that’s what it really is)? I don’t need it. All I want is one large drive which I can fill with folders and files.
Also, the help file refers to the “Download function”…what is that? Why would I need it?
Also I don’t need the iTunes thing, or space, or share, or whatever it is.
I fully understand how to use hard drives but have no clue about this drive and it came with no instructions explaining anything about any of this.
Wish someone would post a location or some info where I can quickly figure out what the heck this drive is and how to manage it. I dont’ want mystery areas or folders or features…i want to manage the drive and configure it the way I want it. I bet others feel the same way. We’re used to buying a storage device, plugging it in, and using it.
BTW, it seems to work fine and reliably, altho being a netdrive on my Netgear wireless router network it seems pretty slow; if there’s a way to configure it to respond faster that would also be nice. My iPhoto library stored on the WD drive, really crawls when accessed over my wireless network
