Newbie question

All very new to me but getting there day by day. My question is the amount of data used in the section OTHER visible on dashboard. I have only found very light explanation on WD about basically this being residual files. Can i get rid of those and if so how, as it shows 2tb already on my 6tb ex2? Thanks for the help

Hi Filmfan1,

Under Others on dashboard, you can find un-indexed data which would be the intermediate files created during & after backup process such as data backed up using SmartWare as it creates meta data to process such operations. Also, it includes the log files and data files which not indexed under Movies, Photos & Music.

Unfortunately you cannot access others on dashboard. This could be made oh so simple but it aint on my cloud ex2 ultra… thanks anyway
