I’ve had a WD MyCloud 4TB NAS for about 6 weeks. So far, it’s been very good.
I have been using it as a repository for all my videos and have it hard wired to my HTPC, which is a Linux device running XBMCbuntu. I have uploaded about .7TB of movies and nothing else and it has run them quite well, vitually without a hitch.
Today my Public Videos directory disappeared and took all my movies with it.
I went through the My Cloud explorer and it hasn’t suddenly relocated to a different part of the drive.
My XBMCbuntu box is all broken links.
I also went through the Dashboard app and it is showing the drive as empty (3.9TB free).
The other strange thing is that the app is now showing 3 cloud devices where it had previously shown only 2.
It is showing 4 shares and I don’t think I have added any.
I have not deleted anything and in fact, the last thing I did was to upload something last night. It was all working then.
I have not rebooted the NAS since I have owned it. It is not on a fixed IP address either.
I can only think that this was a failed firmware update or something similar. Current firmware is v03.04.01-219.
The only good news is that I still have everything backed up on a small USB3 external drive.
Can anyone suggest anything or provide any advice on how to restore from the external drive (other than copy and paste individual movies)?
Thanks in advance.
