I have had the WD 2TB NAS My Book World Edition II for couple of months.
Everything works fine till the time a huge data is being transferred over the network to the NAS. Huge data means to say anything above 100GiB. At the time transfer is going on, the NAS after some time stops responding over the network. All the Windows OS reports that it’s no longer available. I can’t ping to it or SSH to it.
After I plug it out and then plug it back in it’s comes up normal. I checked the LOGs on the NAS, and it doesn’t seem to have any issues reported on the LOG, just the last one which says there was an abnormal shutdown “02/20 20:46:01 WD-2TB daemon.warn wixEvent: System Abnormal Shutdown - System had abnormal shutdown last time.” I don’t have any options other than a Hard reboot, tried all possible actions.

Earlier it was happening once or twice a month, but now I tracked the issue and it seems to be happening more frequently, only when there is a large data transfer over the network to the NAS.
Being little knowledge and working in the field of IT, I feel the kernel of the OS crashes making everything hang.
Is there a FIX for this? Can I put a watchdog somewhere to detect and log the crash event?
