I’ve ironed out all my previous issues with my MyCloud. They were a combination of vague marketing promises and higher-than-supported expectations. But whatever - it is what it is, and I’m moving forward.
My latest problem is, uh, vexing. I cannot, no matter what I do, get Safepoint to work. AT ALL. I can see my external HD (USB, not network), and I can create a sharepoint. But after that, it’s just a mess. The sharepoint never finishes. When it finally finishes (I think?) I can’t locate it. The files are on the HD (if I connect it to my MacBook directly), but Safepoint can’t/won’t see them. Restoring from Safepoint is also not happening.
What the **bleep** am I doing wrong? This doesn’t seem like an especially complex manuever for a hard drive + backup software. Right?
I’m using Mac OSX Yosemite (issue was identical in Mavericks). Latest version of WD desktop/dashboard, and MyCloud firmware. External is a 3TB Seagate USB drive.
