Ok, so I am having several issues with my MyCloud EX2 Ultra and I have tried to do tech support through WD in chat and waited for 30 minutes and didn’t even get to talk to anyone. Anyway, I figured instead of making individual posts I would just do it all in one, and if anyone is able to help I would appreciate it greatly!
1 When I go into the dashboard it only shows me how much storage it has free and I want to get it back to where it would give me a breakdown of like how many gigs of photos, documents, music, and so on I have (please see the screenshots attached). Did they take that away with the latest update and if not how do I change it?
2 I was trying to send someone a folder of photos I have in my public folder that has public access turned on but every time I try and send it It only gives me the option to send via email, text, or airdrop but when I go into the settings of my mac I have the copy link turned on so I don’t understand why it doesn’t give me that option. But if I try and email them I get the message that the attachment is too large (screenshot attached) so I am assuming it is trying to send it as an attachment instead of a link. Is there a way I can send them the link and use my drive as the server instead of something like Google Drive or DropBox?
3 So I was looking into the dropbox app for my MyCloud and I didn’t find a lot of info but I know you can use it to back up your files from your MyCloud to dropbox but can you do it the other way? Kind of like with number 2 if I add files to the dropbox folder will they show up in the dropbox app where I can send them a link to it or is that not what it is used for and if that can be done instead of having them actually uploaded to the dropbox can I use the MyCloud and kind of just have dropbox as the middle man so to speak. Basically, I only have 2gbs of dropbox storage and it’s not enough but I don’t want to pay for more storage especially when I have an 8tb MyCloud.
Again thank you in advance!
