Western Digital WDShareSpace 4TB

by James on 5/30/2011

I own this Raid unit for 18 months now and I have only had a few problems. All of the problems have been that the IP address becomes invalid. So I have to disconnect the drive letters, use WD Discovery to re-assign the drive letter. This happen again but now I cannot assign any drive letters as I get a message that the IP is not valid. I can click in CONFIG from WD Discovery, and in my browser, I can connect to the Raid unit. It shows that the IP is valid in there. None of the trouble shooting help in the user manual or on WD website helped. SO I send an email to WD and maybe this time, they will help me. The unit is still under warranty.

Product Overview

The WD ShareSpace 4-bay Gigabit Ethernet network attached storage system with a space-saving footprint and capacities up to 4 TB gives you the benefits of a big-time data center without the need for a big-time IT department. Perfect for centralizing data on a small office or home network. Features include RAID 0/1/5, MioNet remote access software, an e-mail alert system, Active Directory support and a download manager. Push a button to quickly transfer data from a connected USB drive. Centralize your music collection and stream to a Mac® or Windows® PC with iTunes® software. Set up continuous backup for up to 3 computers in your network using the included automatic backup software.

  • Big capacity, small footprint — Offered in 2 and 4 TB capacities, this small-footprint four-bay system takes up very little space and provides plenty of storage to go around.

  • High-speed access, Ethernet connectivity — Provides data transfer rates up to 1,000 MB/s when used in a GigE network. Gigabit networking and transfer rates are five to six times faster than other network storage systems. This performance is comparable to USB 2.0 direct-attached storage.

  • RAID capability — Offers multiple RAID configurations for data protection and speed – RAID 0 (Striped), RAID 1 (Mirrored), and RAID 5. The RAID 5 mode, only available on the fullypopulated 4-drive system, is the recommended mode to achieve both high-performance and data protection through redundancy.

  • Remote access software — Access your files anywhere, anytime using MioNet® remote access services from WD.
