I’ve recently purchased and installed 2 tb My Cloud on my iMac and having issues all over the place - what clumsy 1970’s software is this!!
Anyway, one of the issues I’m having is with passwords. When I try to set up Timemachine on my computer it asks for the WD password and no matter how I type it in it doesn’t recognise it. There’s no provision on this message box to reset forgotten password and it won’t respond if I reset it through a link sent by WD. Is anyone ele having these problems…it seems, even though I’m the only user, there are password conflicts and I can’t get out of the loop that asks for password then doesn’t recognise it.
The password box shows up when I click on open, from the WD icon on my mac. It says 'enter your name and password for the server “WDHOME.local.” No matter what I type in, it won’t respond and, as I mentoned, there’s no option to reseet password, though I can sign in as a guest without the password - not very safe!!!
Is there a way to clear ALL passwords and put in one for the whole system?
Thanks in advance!!
