Is there some secret way to force the system back to somekind of factory configuration. At this point I dont even care if i lose the original configuration. When it died the first time, after only a week, I had just managed to get the people I wanted in it as users wth their permissions and folders. It was set to use a static IP as well. When it went down, i turned to toehr alternatives as i had no time to experiment. But it is a rather expensiver device to simoly toss-outt. I hae tried all the normal resets, the foursecond hold and release and can occasionally access it it is the only device connected direct by crossover cable to the nic on my system. On the times i can get in, it is using a briowser going to
http://wd.com/setup/wdmycloud . I could once see the static IP set there and have even tried chaging it back to DHCPC but it always ends up as the “Lost” Ip of 169.254.xxx.xxx. I can see the users and can add new ones but only for a short time as it always disconnects eventually. Windows will sometimes show the WD MyCloud device in various locations under network devices but it seem to be unstable.
Is there a way to make the unit accwept an update to the new firmware and f so is that going to be of any use? If it is this unreliable it can;t be used for my needs anyway
