MyCloud EX2 - Add statistics to admin dashboard

On the EX2 Admin dashboard, one can display the capacity of the device.  While this information is interesting, it is not really useful when needing to trouble shoot various issues. 

An example of a question that can be answered by the data file statistics display would be: 

Which share has the most directories on your My Cloud EX2, and what is the directory count?

I suggest adding an option to display the folder and file information for each Share, such as:

Public

   -  xx directories

  •     max folder level/layers   xx per directory

   -  xxxx files     (xx total GB)

         -   xxx video      (xx total GB)

         -  xx music        (xx total GB)

         -  xx photos       (xx total GB)

         -  xx other          (xx total GB)

Share2

   -  xx directories

  •     max folder level/layers   xx per directory

   -  xxxx files     (xx total GB)

         -   xxx video      (xx total GB)

         -  xx music        (xx total GB)

         -  xx photos       (xx total GB)

         -  xx other          (xx total GB)

Then, when these high level stats are displayed, enable the ability to drill into each one to get more detail.  Example

max folder level/layers   xx per directory      -  enable drill down to the folder that has the max layers to see exactly what it is and the folder structure for that directory.

I fully agree that the Dashboard e.g. in EX2 lacks visibiliy and transparence.

From my first experience, I´ve listed here few gaps to be adressed.
