I bought my 4 TB MBLD about 3 months ago, and to be quite honest I’ve not been impressed. There’s 3 main issues I seem to be facing on a daily basis and Im 100% sure this shouldn’t be happening.
1 - I can’t upload a folder with subfolders ie Films > Batman > The Dark Knight >The_Dark_Knight.mp4
I have to upload the Films folder (empty with nothing inside) , then add every subfolder (empty) indidvidually and then put in the files individually… and it’s a nightmare.
2 - I can’t use the web access (through wd2go.com) on ANY laptop, not even the one I set it up on, in the same room, on the same network!!! And no I’m not using the wrong credentials.
3 - Im fine accessing my drive on my iPad / iPhone at home on the same network, but when Im at work and try access my files it just says device offline, even though I’ve changed the settings saying never to go into sleep mode.
I’ve heard about this SAMBA solution, is this really what I need to do? I thought from your promotional videos that it was simple for non-tech savvies like myself, that’s why I chose WD and not your competitors.
