My problems started with the same issues others on Windows 10 are reporting: can no longer browse to the drive using \drivename\sharename, as I’ve been able to do for years. I’d go through some of the fixes found here and it would work briefly, but there’d be a different problem, next time.
Now I’m noticing issues with accessing the UI/dashboard – it’s just REALLY slow.
So I thought - let’s update the firmware. The firmware won’t load. I can’t do a manual or other method firmware update. Nothing happens.
What’s going on ? Is the software for this drive causing it to slowly go out of function? That’s kind of what it feels like. Does WD read these forum posts? I have important data on this drive and, because it’s the biggest drive I own, no easy way to back up the data on this drive.
