I am basic home user of My Cloud and use it as a simple NAS with auto safe point back up’s monthly, a DLNA server for my smart TV and maybe once a week I access files remotely from my office. I am currently running 04.01.04-422 and keep getting email reminders to update my F/W however due to my mixed historic experience I am rather anxious at actually doing it.
My last 2 F/W upgrades seem to have worked no problem, however previous to that on upgrading my F/W my safe point back up wasn’t recognised, so had to manually drop and drag 1tb of data across, reformat the safe point but even that didn’t work. It was under guarantee so I got a replacement and after similar struggles (I still don’t know how it sprung back to life) I got it to work again.
So there lies my dilemma. Everything currently works on F/W 422 for me with no problems whatsoever. Should I quit while I’m ahead or potentially upgrade my F/W but play Russian Roulette with the outcome?
In case its relevant, I use Apple products like iPhones, iPads with the WD Apps, Home and Work iMac’s 2014 and 2015 macbook pro all using latest 10.11 El Capitan.
