Ok here's the thing, I know there are guides out there I checked in google but there is nothing concrete and it sounds to me like its the kind of thing nobody mentions because everybody here already knows how to do it, which is why its not mentioned anywhere.. and I just bought my drive and I am pretty new at this so please hear me out.
How exactly do I set up an ftp server in my drive? I know its possible, I just dont find it anywhere, even in this site if I go to Hacks and Tutorials, its not there, as I said, it seems like the kind of thing everybody knows so thats why nobody talks about it. what I do right now is I have an old small laptop that I maped to the network drive and I set up an ftp server in that laptop, so users can go in and access the network drive but the ideal set up with be to have the mybook be the ftp server on its own.
and my second question is. Do I have to format my drive to do this? because I have so much data on it and god knows how slow it is to upload all that data there again once I am done with the hack.
Well I hope you can help me. Thanks!
