I have been testing the 1TB WD My Book Live, and I have tried to simulate an environment I will be installing the NAS. An enclosed space that can get quite warm.
I have been able to force the NAS to over heat, causing it to send out an alert (not an email) via the Smartware ‘service’ I installed on my laptop.
This was fine, but two things I have queries about.
does the device stop working when it over heats? so it does not continue to generate heat? It seem to stay on with a red LED light.
how to clear the over heated message from it web interface. The message seemed to be there for several days after the event. Even after the device had been restarted several times, and was well below it hot temperature. Also used the “dont show this message again” button, without much joy.
