I purchased a 4TB WDMyCloud a few days ago. So far I’m less than impressed! Slow speeds and at time, unresponsive. In setting up the WDMyCloud I created a Share (MSWinFileHistory) with media turned off. This share is used as a storage point for two Windows 8 PC’s. Files are placed on the WDMyCloud via Windows file history. There are thousands of photo’s and songs in the share. While investigating why the unit is slow I noticed Content Scan has been busy for almost 12 hours. I have to assuming it’s scanning the files stored in the share I created as no files exist in any of the other shares.
I’ve checked the shares configuration. It shows Media sharing is off for the MSWinFileHistory share and on for the Public share.
I’ve left the DLNA server on and shut off the iTunes server.
If I understand the DLNA server correctly, it should be scanning only the Public Share. Why than in the WDMyCloud performing a media scan when no files exist in the Public share? More importantly, why is it scanning the MSWinFileHistory share???
