Using your tip I have successfuly removed broken links visible from dashboard and Ipad. However I still have broken links in the network drive \WDMYCLOUD : /weddingphotos and /weddingguest2
I tried to create new folders with the same name in /DataVolume/shares, I got this error message :
- Échec de la fonction du dossier partagé. (400099)
which is the same error I got when all these troubles have started. Unfortunately I am the only guy who ever got this error code on this forum… lucky me!
So after some reading I understood that under linux systems the file sharing with Windows networks is done with the tool SAMBA. Using the command " testparm" I got the confirmation that this tool is related with my broken links…
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf

Now here is the solution to solve this problem:
connect to ssh (login=root / password=welc0me)
cp overall_share overall_share.save2014.02.05
on the lines that should obviously be deleted including ## BEGIN ## and ## END ##
to save and quit
testparm to confirm that unwanted sections have disapeared
under windows : \WDMYCLOUD to confirm that broken links have disapeared
under dashboard : create a new folder and delete this new folder to confirm UI is not damaged
congratulations the product waranty is broken but the probem has disapeared!
