I have a big issue with my WD Sentinel DX4000. Yesterday I was finishing setting up my replacement DX 4000 when I joined my machine to my Homegroup via the Dashboard. This operation got stuck in “Sharing folders…” for nearly 24 hours, so I decided to close the Dashboards in order to kill the process.
Later on, I tried to do a first back up of the server, so I opened Windows Server Backup, and noticed it gets stuck in “Reading data; please wait…” That got me worried, so I started checking things on my server, and then noticed an issue with the shared folders on the Dashboard—if I check the folders’ properties and go to Sharing, I can see the error “Cannot retrieve user access level permissions for the folder.”
I decided to RDC to the server and stopped sharing one of the shared folders from Share and Storage Management. Then tried to recreate the missing Shared folder from the Dashboard, but the Dashboard gets stuck creating the shared folder. It seems the Dashboard doesn’t communicate properly with the server.
Last months have been tough getting my old machine to work properly… Now it seems I’m going to have to recover my replacement DX4000 just after setting it up. Any help?
