I have a 4 TB WD My cloud with firmware 2.x. Also I have two identical My Passport USB drives which I want to use for making backups of differnt parts of the MyCloud.
The problem is that when I connect either disk to the USB port, the two come up with the same share name (“My_Paasport_820-1”), thus I cannot create different backup jobs to backup different parts of the WD MyCloud on each disk.
If I change the share name while the disk is attached, eject it and reconnect again, it doesn’t keep the share name.
How can I assign a different share name to each disk ? Is this done automatically ? Based on what ? Does the fact that the two USB disks are the same model have anything to do ?
Is there any script can edit to change this behavior ?
