Good day Brandon,
Thank you for the email.
May I know why you would make external drives accessible to everyone by default? That is bad implementation in my opinion.
Further, I have set my MyCloudEX2Ultra to reboot every night and I have noticed that it loses any configuration made for external drives. For example, any name I assign to my external drive as well as it’s sharing configuration is completely reset and the name
is reset to the default ‘Backup_Desk’ and the share is available to public.
Honestly I don’t see why it should be available to public by default. I can keep some confidential (or otherwise) files which I want only myself to access, and not anyone else. Can you provide a good reason why you would make it a public share by default, and
one that cannot be changed?
Further, when we set up ‘deny’ access to users/ user groups, please hide the folders completely from such users. Why should everyone (even those with the most basic access) see the entire directory structure of my NAS? Just hiding the contents isn’t enough,
even hiding the presence of such folders is how it should be. Any user/ user group should be able to see only those folders that they are allowed access. Everything else should be hidden completely. Again, can you give me one good reason why everyone should
see the entire directory structure?
Also, this system still supports SMBv1 only, which is highly insecure. When will you be implementing support for SMBv2 & SMBv3?
Hope you would make these improvements with your next update.
Thank you for your prompt, polite and positive response.
With kind regards,
