New Shares aren't being created

As a follow-on to THIS post:   http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-Live/Share-created-but-no-new-folder/m-p/247686/message-uid/247686#U247686

I have done some more testing in 2.02.02… This bug still exists.

I created a new share called “Backup” via the UI:

However, the share doesn’t show up in Windows Explorer:

The MBL isn’t even CREATING the share space in the Shares volume:

MYBOOKLIVE:/shares# ls
Photos Public test tony
MYBOOKLIVE:/shares# ls -la
total 388
drwxr-xr-x 7 root share 65536 Aug 29 07:20 .
drwxr-xr-x 25 root root 4096 Aug 25 12:00 ..
drwxr-xr-- 2 root root 65536 Sep 1 20:01 .mediacrawler
drwxrwxr-x 2 root share 65536 Jul 20 12:30 Photos
drwxrwxr-x 11 root share 65536 Aug 4 19:36 Public
drwxrwxr-x 2 root share 65536 Aug 11 18:21 test
drwxrwxr-x 3 root share 65536 Feb 6 2011 tony

 … and it isn’t defined in the SAMBA configuration.

I’d call this a pretty serious bug…  

The word “backup” is a reserved Share name. Unfortunately, the UI is not properly reporting an error. Thanks for reporting this.
