I had a Black Armor NAs that just died–2 years old.
I think I like this My Cloud 3T that I got yesterday, but I am having one bit of trouble…
I want to map a drive letter to the Public share. On the old BSNAS, I was able to do this purely in Windows 7 using a shortcut to a cmd file containing
net use P: \DEVICENAME\Public
It is not working with the Mycloud. Well, better said, it doesn’t work fully or right.
Here are facts…
the DEVICENAME does show up in Network as the name, yet a click on it opens to a folder named as the IP address.
-Same with the net use command…it open the folder, but \DEVICENAME has been changed into the IP address.
I am concerned with this since the IP is DHCP and will change at some point. Clearly the system ‘KNOWS’ the device name as it is displaying it in the networks folder. So why is it doing it–refusing to use the (NETBIOS/SMP?) computer hostname (and I do not know if “it” is Windows 7 or the discovery app)?
A corollary question…can the MyCloud be run without the Discovery sfw installed, i.e., as simply a server attached to the network?
