I’ve been like a week trying to delete a folder and as it seemed it would have passed a month and maybe it won’t be over. I came here, read this thread and the light bulb went on over my head. Went to chrome, signed into mycloud and deleted it on the browser, a one second move and it was gone.It was a 200gb folder full of files. In any case, interacting with the mycloud home over the file explorer always seem to be a long and difficult task. I thought it was going to be easier. Had I known it was going to belike this, I wouldn’t have purchased it
@Maestro57 I’m also struggling with a similar problem for years with a my cloud home device, I bought the 8tb one.
The issue I’m having is with moving files to/from folders that contain lot of files. I checked deleting and found that I also have the same issue with deleting and seeing properties of files, but the issues only come up only when the folder containing the file(s) have lot of files in them.
I’ve been wrestling with all of the posts there have been about the slow deletion of files on my 2TB WDMyCloud when using Windows File Explorer. I had even tried using the command line to speed things up - and even that didn’t work!
I was interested in, but afraid of, the SSH commands - but no-one actually told you how to delete files and folders this way - but it lead me to thinking and so I installed Ubuntu, using the VM VirtualBox, mounted my WDMyCloud and used its file explorer to delete the folders. Now, these were large and contained copies of the Windows directories, themselves - over 33GB each - but Ubuntu to the rescue and the task was accomplished in a matter of minutes, rather than the 24hours+ that Windows was offering!
Some food for thought, perhaps?
