Of all the threads this one seems to be the most likely to have the answers I am looking for.
Using a WD My Cloud 4tb (The white unit) I’m trying to get a configuration that would provide multiple users access to the drive with each user having their own folder accessible nly by them and the admin. These folders need to be connected via BTsync to the identical folder on each user’s system with a read-only configuration such that any files they add to the folder on their end sync to their WD folder on this end but leaves them free to delete the fileson their end after they sync to free up space that are synced while not deleting the copy on the WD drive.
The issue is that out of 30 folders, there will be some people using windows 8.1 and some stil have windows 7. (I hope no one is still stuck on Windows 8.0).
While I can disable the auto update on the WD drive, I can’t control what updates each user gets and this is a “last chance” effort to create a workable setup that has to stay working for at least a decent amount of time before any problems have to be dealt with.
Has anyone managed to get anything like this to stay operational using any of the available firmware versions? I am not certain what is on the WD My Cloud at this point but I will try to change to whatever works.
