First, the basics.
Yes, each device I’m using has a wired gigabit connection and the lights indicate accordingly.
Yes, the network drive has a static IP assigned at the router.
Heat is not an issue; there’s a fan blowing at the drive since I’ve had heat issues with WD external HDD’s in the past.
Using with Windows 7 x64.
Anyway, I’m currently using it as a network drive. On one system, I’m randomly getting logged out and have to enter credentials again constantly. In addition, the webGUI does not load (even while the drive itself appears to work normally) sometimes.
Firmware is up to date (last check was a few weeks ago). Not aware of other issues other than problems with accessing the drive from multiple systems simultaneously. (Doing so has randomly disconnected other computers from the drive, which has happened once so far.)
I intend to leave the drive on 24/7 or at least on all day, so having to reboot all the time is not a viable option.
Also, web UI issues should NEVER be happening inside the network. I’ve never had trouble accessing the web UI of either router in my home, nor HTTP servers being hosted on other computers.
Edit: The Windows logout issue seems to be with Windows as opposed to the MyCloud, as this is not happening on my other devices. The “remember my credentials” checkbox seems to be ignored by Windows.
Edit: Windows logout issue resolved. This appears to be a problem with how Windows saves (or doesn’t) network login credentials, or it isn’t correctly recognizing the network location type of the drive.
