Hello all, first time poster here. Hoping some of you wise heads can help out.
I’ve purchased a WD My Cloud EX2 specifically so I can remove the Photos library from my MacBook Pro (
2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 2014 15" Retina running OSX Yosemite 10.10.2) to an external drive.
Very happy witht the fast easy set up of the EX2 after unboxing this afternoon.
Problems arose when I tried to drag & copy my photos library to the EX2. Size of the library is 57GB.
All looked OK as I was getting an initial transfer time of 4 hours. Upon checking back 30 minutes later transfer time was estimated at 8 days!! At which point I hit the stop button.
Can anyone suggest what I’m doing wrong here or how to proceed? Really need these files off my Mac HD.
