Hi - I purchased a new 4TB My Cloud Home, got it up and running no problem.
I was able to easily sync files and begin a time machine back up of my HD.
This morning when I got up, the drive was beeping. The white light was solid white.
I unplugged it and plugged it back in.
The drive booted just fine. All my synced files where on the drive and accessible through the mobile app.
My time machine back up, however, did not complete. SO I restarted the process from scratch.
For some reason, the backup has started but progressed VERY SLOW (KBs/hr). About 15 mins after it started, the drive began beeping again. I did nothing and the beeping stopped after about 3 mins.
Right now the drive up functioning fine - synced files are accessible and syncing; time machine is backing up, albeit at an unacceptably slow rate; beeping has ceased.
As aways, WD offers the worst trouble shooting support (aka - NONE) of all tech companies.
What’s with the beeps? Is the failure of the first attempt at a time machine backup related to the beeps? Is the slow nature of the current attempt at a time machine back up related to the beeps??
