I’ve just purchased my WD My Cloud (4TB) and have been getting on with it well. I have been using an external USB drive to transfer all my photos, videos, and music quickly.
I now want to do the same with my Time Machine backup(s). I have created a new Time Machine backup on my external drive. However, when I plug this in to my My Cloud it just hangs. I can’t view the web front end and I can’t SSH in.
I’m guessing that this is something to do with me rebooting the My Cloud mid-transfer yesterday. When I first connected it, it appeared as expected. Then after a lot of agro it appeared with ‘_2’ appended to its name. Now I’m just left with the My Cloud barfing when I plug it in.
Any ideas on how to go about setting this right? Should I do a reset? If so, what does this wipe? Wors comes to the worse I could wip the USB drive and tray again. But it appears to be ok when plugged into my Mac.
Has anyone manually moved a time machine bakup from a USB drive to the My Cloud successfully?
Thanks in advance.
