I’ve had MyCloud turned off for long times because of sleep issues.
I manually power it on whenever I need to do bulk transfers and then power it off + unplug when done.
Can I finally keep it plugged in full time after 3 years of WD updates? ( IS SLEEP FIXED?? ) With the old firmwares, I did not like the daily multiple starts wearing down my harddrive.
I remember RAC and Rapheal doing lots of investigating around ~3 years ago. I see that FOX still has his custom firmware.
I do not need any WD features. The MyCloud is not allowed to access outside internet (blocked at router). If I need cloud features, I VPN into network, and access them “locally”.
Firmware Update check
Logs I never read
Drive indexing by file type
Just regular NAS access with LONG sleep. Ideally maybe NTP service can run to update time, but not if it has to wakeup the drive.
Did WD ever fix this? Did Rac or Rapheal find the culprit that we can modify ourselves? Is our only option FOX firmware? I need barebones NAS with long sleep. I remember disabling the index service, thumbnail service, and monitor.sh tally tweak, but that never got full sleep.
Newest listed firmware is v04.05.00-315 on my unit. If not fixed, which fox firmware has fastest speeds? WD Firmware has crazy fast NAS speeds.
