Having bought this device I can only say I’m VERY disappointed with the non-intuitive nature of the drive. And don’t get me started on transfer rate. 11 days to move 2tb? Ridiculous.
All I want to be able to do is see the drive on my Mac as just a mirrored enclosure, like my current NAS, and share ALL my files between registered users.
So far I have discovered that if I copy files onto it from my Mac and do not put them in FAMILY I can see them but my wife can’t. The same applies if she stores files outside FAMILY.
Also, I don’t appear to be able to see the drive at all without the WD app running. Why? it’s just a disk!!
