Ok so i was fuming when i wrote the post, ive calmed down and here are more details.
I have copied for PDF files in the public share. i copied 100 or so pdf files. Once copied i wanted to organise and move to different folders, drag and drop seemed to be working ok from the network driver in windows 7 file explorer, however when i press delete using file explorer the file is no longer visible in the folder as you would expect, if i then either
change shares and switch back
move into a child directory and then back to the parent
the file will re appear, i can then click on the file and delete it again, and this process goes over and over. If i leave everything for 5 - 10 mins, eg delete then walk away, the file stays deleted. its as if the drive it taking a long time to catch up.
The device is connected to my network which unfortunately is currently a 10/100 router.
When trying to drag and drop i get a security error, which i seem to have resolved for now and this was around intranet security and i have to trust the IP address. However all files seem to get marked as ARCHIVE in file properties for some reason when i copy to the nas.
But the biggest issues is my USB drive, its a 1tb wd elements drive, no security, works nicely directly on machine, on the device though i plug it in and hey presto it appears as a drive, but trying to access it or any other part of the nas then dies.
Hopefully this provides some details…
the delete is driving me nuts.
ALSO some questions.
I can see the device in my itunes, and the device has some movies, and some books, no music yet, am i to assume that books and movies are not shown as items you can view in itunes? do i manually have to to go “add files to library” to add my books back into itunes, does the itunes server not automatically pick these up? this nas is starting to look like an expensive 3tb HDD…and i would have been better off with a portable HDD then this unit, … itune server resticted to just music kinda **bleep**
