Thanks for the quick reply. I did have the renaming of the drive issue a while back, when I changed drive housings, but it was a pretty easy fix to get it back to the original name. However, this time it’s still listed with the original share name, and shows it’s being shared publicly, but it simply doesn’t appear when viewing the MyCloud via a file explorer. And consequently, trying to access the share doesn’t work.
I did try disconnecting the drive and checking the shares in dashboard, but the share is gone when the drive is disconnected. It appears back when I reconnect, but still not available on the network.
I did find out more info though. I also have a 4TB version of the same device, with no current USB device used, and it also got the firmware update last night. I plugged the external drive into that unit, and it works as it should…automatically mounted it and shares it on the network. Then I took a flash drive and plugged it into the offending 3TB MyCloud, and it shows up and is network accessible.
So the problem, while apparently initiated during the firmware update process, seems to be with that particular previously-shared USB drive on that particular MyCloud. I’m not familiar with using the SSH to access the files on the MyCloud, as I’ve never had the need, and am hesitant to spend the afternoon (or more) tinkering with something that shouldn’t have happened to begin with, but if there’s no alternative, may give it a try.
Since the other MyCloud is working, it’s not as disastrous as I first thought, though I have several home machines (HTPC) who have the many files on that drive indexed through Kodi, and will have to go through all of them and see if I can modify the network path (to avoid having to re-index it all).
If you have more suggestions on fixing the 3TB so it will work properly, please let me know. If not I may bite the bullet and figure out the file access so I can go in and delete the share as mentioned in your post. One lesson in this for me is to see that auto-update for the firmware is OFF.
