I’m thinking about getting a My Cloud to simplify and consolidate my many backups. However, this would mean storing at least 300,000 photo files (and more in the future). I have read that My Cloud’s indexing feature has made the drive impossibly slow for some people. Are we likely to find that storing so many photos will effectively make it unusable?
Assuming that I add all existing photos in one go then wait for the indexing to finish, what would happen when I then add photos a few hundred or a few thousand at a time?
I have read somewhere that each time the drive is turned on it will start indexing again. does that mean it will take as long to index each time as it did the first time?
I have read that it is possible to turn off indexing by switching off remote access. Although remote access is not as important to me as backup, it would be shame to have a “cloud” device that can’t be accessed through the cloud! Is it possible to specify that only some folders (or “shares”) will be indexed?
Does the problem affect all variants of My Cloud, including My Cloud Ultra Ex 2?
