I just installed wd sync and my new wd ex2. When I set it up on my computer I logged in as the user admin - when I should have logged in a a user i created on the storage device (lets say ‘bob’). Sync was nice and synced many many GB or multimedia files, as admin.
Since I have a multiuser, multicomputer environment, I want the files associated with user bob, so that bob can sync his files across multiple computers. Ditto for other users.
To get the sync set up for ‘bob’ I uninstalled the sync & access apps, and re-installed - and it ran the setup again. This time I set it up as ‘bob’ (I already created that account on the ex2), and again teh fiels are syncing.
Now my question: How do I remove (from the EX2) all the original files that were synced initially when logged is admin? I don’t want them taking up space.
Is there some sort of admin panel somewhere that shows me the file structure/system directly on the EX2, and lets me delete folder and/or files that I don’t want?
I looked for ‘shares’ for admin - thinking there would be something like admin/Documents (copied over from the computer) - but I cannot even find shares for user admin - and I can’t even see the ‘folders’ that are supposed synced for bob.
I don’t understand. Does my EX2 device only allow access to the files via an app like sync? If so how do I clean up the files I accidentally synced from the wrong user?
Am I just hopelessly confused?
(note: I am good with computers and tech - but I am pretty old-school - ie - I am used to files and directories and partitions and just working with these)
