I am trying to alter an old PC backup application I wrote a while ago. I am having issues when the MyCload is in ‘sleep’ mode.
I am trying to get some help via the MS VB forum and I have been asked if the MyCloud supports Wake on Lan sent from a connected device (my laptop PC), and I can’t find any info for this - so am asking here.
To explain the issues am having: in my application, when I set up a backup job, I choose the source and destination via a FolderBrowser dialog. When I do this, and the MyCloud is in ‘sleep’ mode, I can see the shares listed with a red X against them (as would be expected) and if I select one of the shares as the job destination,then the MyCloud ‘wakes’ up and the chosen destination path works fine. However, as part of my application, the ‘job’ parameters are saved for future use. The source and destination paths are saved and reloaded as needed - *but*, if the MyCloud is in ‘sleep’ mode when the ‘job’ is being reused from saved parameters (without rebuilding via the Folder Browser dialog), then it fails.
Question 1 is: does the MyCloud supports aWOL signal?
Question 2 is: how can I ‘wake’ the Mycloud from code?
