My apologies if this topic was already discuss but could not find a solution.
Basically, my computer has no more access to my WD-My Cloud external drive since yesterday. I have not made any changes to it or my router or my computer. But there was a power outage yesterday so there could be a link.
Here are the symptoms:
-Red light blinking on WD My Cloud
-For the past 4 hours, there has been hard drive activity according to the sound coming out of this external drive. But has I’m writing this post, no more activities.
-My Cisco router shows it is connected with an IP address even after deleting it and refreshing the DHCP client list.
-No ping response from DOS command prompt using the above IP address
-Unable to open its dashboard
-Cannot be detected by Windows 10 Network within Windows Explorer
What I have tried;
-Searched this group
-Reset the router
-4 sec. reset to the My Cloud
-10 sec reset to the My Cloud
-Installed a switch between the router and My Cloud
All of the above did not improve the situation.
