I currently have a WDTV live plus and a 1.5tb USB hard drive.
What I’d ideally like to do is leave the hard drive connected 24x7 and be accessible over the network.
(From my mac/pc, I’d like to map a drive letter to the usb drive. It seems like all I need for this is SMB or WebDav?) The main idea is that I don’t want to have to FTP in / use proprietary software to see the files on it.
Is it possible to use the WDTV to act as a fileserver like this?
If so, would it have the ability to spin down the USB drive when not in use, or would it remain spinning 24x7?
