Currently wdmcserver scans all shares regardless of the media setting of the share - this is not the expected behavior. This results in extremely slow upload to the point of being unusable and the whole unit becomes unresponsive - this is unacceptable. Presumably this also puts unnecessary strain on the hard drive. The expected behavior is the share’s settings should be respected - if a user wants to enable media sharing later on a share they can then click rescan media. It has been discussed extensively on this board so it’s clearly a problem. I currently have all media scanning completely disabled just so I can use the unit which is unacceptable - please fix.

This issue was already registered as Idea few months before by Me ( http://community.wd.com/t5/Network-Product-Ideas/My-Cloud-Ex2-Turn-off-convert-wdmcserver-wdphotodbmerger/idi-p/730836).
Since this isn’t fixed yet, I do not think it ever will.
I agree that WD has no intention of ever fixing this problem. After all this is the quickest way I know of wearing out the hard drive. If and when my drive fails I do not intend to replace my MyCloud with another WD product.
BTW it looks like after installing firmware v04.01.02-417 wdmcserver has decided to start a completely new rescan of everything!
