I have MyBook World Edition II (white) with 2 HDD, 2TB each. I have been using it as a file server, running 24/7, since 2010. I had recently problems with the device itself (I hope the disks are fine). MBW stopped responding (both http and ssh). I restarted it and everything was fine again. After some days (a week or so) - the same problem.
Can you take one of the drives out of the box and back up data on it using Norton Ghost or a similar tool? (I used the disks in MBW separately - as 2 disks with 2TB each, no RAID no STRIP.) I have thousands of files on them and backing them up over network shared drives is too slow.
Thank you for any advice
