Extremely disappointed with this product. Had purchased 3, returned 2, third one cratered during FW update. Now, it won’t boot at all - yet I can ping the device. This same device has gone off in to the weeds before and was lucky enough to bring ot back by restarting several times over a few days - it suddenly came back for unknown reasons. It ran for a year and when i went into one day, the WD software told me I had to update the unit before I could log into it. That’s where the wheels fell off.
Is there a way to restart the FW update or do I just bin it?
As a result of my frustrations with this device, I have determined it is not a very reliable device and with that, is totally unsuitable for anything other than a best effort storage device. Very disappointing for sure. I have bought a QNAP TS-469 now and so far it’s been reliable - plus it has RAID which is cool. Obviuos price differnce but the MyBookLive shouldn’t be peddled as a reliable device if it clearly is not. IMHO, clearly not reliable.
