Thanx for helping us WDTony.
Have the same problem after the last actualization and (WD2go) the hard drive never sleeps... and is like making defrag/indexing all the time. The hard drive is making this for more tha 6 days.....
Hard Drive info: My book live 2Tb version
last firmware from 16 august i think and WD2Go
80.000 Photos, maybe more... 500Gb
More than 1Tb in Avi/mov files
I triyed to unpulg the RJ45... and still the same think (working all time)
Try to make a reset (on the back) same think, still working.
Unplug the power, let them rest for 5 min, plug it in again and still working.
Before the update if a copy some files (Avis/fotos), the transfer was good 40 MB~60MB...
The hard drive go to sleep and everything was ok.
Now after the las firmware update and WD2Go the transfer rate is went down to no more than 10MB...
Reading files... same think 10 to 12 MB/sec.
So after reading this post I turned off all possible "remote process" like:
Now I have recover the speed !!!!
But the HD is still working and "doing think's" but it's a lot faster.
Doesen't go to sleep.... but is ok for now
Speed is back and waiting for a new firmware.
Thanks for helping WDTony... I asked the spanish WD support... and they didn't gave me a "correct" answer... they just say, if the HD work's wrong, move 1,8 Tb !!!!! and factory default... and problem resolved. ?¿?¿?¿¿?
