Reset button on back


#1

will hitting the reset button on the back wipe the data on my MBL???


#2

No.   


#3

Thanks. Tried it and nothing happens. On other wd device hitting reset restarts the whole device. Othose wbl, nothing happens. No power off, hdd still whirling away…any suggestions?


#4

Did you hold it for four seconds?


#5

have tried it and nothing happens…is it meant to power off and back on again?


#6

No, it doesn’t…have you read the instructions about it?


#7

yes, all of them from back to front.

i can see the device on the network as a ‘‘computer’’ but get an error saying 'windows cannot access ‘homestorage’ (the name i originally gave the drive).

i get error code '0x80070035   'network path cannot be found…

no response from wd either!!!

Ok, so after you reset it, did you reconfigure it?
