I understand that the WDMyCloud is a low end (budget) cloud device and as such is not a Ferrari when it come to performance. I don’t mind that it takes several minutes to fully populate the Dashboard, or minutes to display the shares. It is slow because it is low powered (read: inexpensive) and so it takes a lot of time to perform routine tasks.
I could fully embrace that premise if the WDMyCloud would at least provide a user indicator message of “busy” or, if you like “working on it”, or a cursor that spins, an hourglass that drains, a spinning disk, or any one of dozens of existing indicators used by most hardware manufacturers.
Come on Western Digital, give us that much needed feature! It would reduce the number of unnecessary resets, power plug pulls and screams of frustration.
