My Cloud Ex2: Turn off convert, wdmcserver, wdphotodbmerger processes

The process named “convert” in WD My Cloud EX2 causes severe performance and availability problems as well as unnecessary wear of hard drives. After putting many files into the EX2 unit, the convert process begins to consume CPU 100% and cause many unnecessary I/O activities on the hard drives until the owner reboots the unit.

Please implement solution to this also for EX2 My Cloud Device!
