Guys, please help!
I have a 2TB WD Mycloud home (the white box). It worked fine for about 6 months but all of a sudden it’s acting up in a very strange way.
Files that are currently on the drive are accessible via FTP and when copying from the drive to my PC I get expected speeds of transfer.
BUT when I try to copy anything onto the Mycloud all fails. I tried copying txt files as small as 20kb and would be getting 4 kilobytes per second speeds. Trying anything above 1 MB and it simply crashes my File Explorer.
Info about my setup:
WD connected via CAT 5 cable (tested multiple cables, different slots)
SMB3 (SMB2 or 1 don’t work for me, can’t access files with those)
Tried to reset to default settings
Turned off itunes / DLNA in the web interface
Tried multiple reboots
Tried turning off Windows defender firewall and antivirus
Tried scanning the drive (no errors)
Basically, I’m out of ideas. I’m pretty handy with these things but this thing is driving me nuts. This all started acting up about a week ago. Up until now it was fine.
Most confusing part is that the download speeds are normal, about 100 MB/s, but copying onto the Mycloud just doesn’t work.
I would really appreciate any advice because after spending 10 hours on troubleshooting this myself, I just don’t know what else to try.
