Hello to all forum members and gurus!
Thanks to your instructions, I was able to perform a couple of hacks to my two WD MyBook World Edition II (2TB) drives, being used with Mac computers.
Until today, I was able to install OptWare and:
1. Allow editing of default shares (Public/Download) by editing file:
and commenting out/replacing the section:
// $this->reserved_share = array('Public', 'Download');
$this->reserved_share = array('');
2. Natively disable Twonky media server/service (upon reboot) by simply applying:
chmod 644 /etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver
3. Hide "MyBookWorld-Backup" share from Finder by editing file:
and commenting out the last line that references "MyBookWorld-Backup" after sections
"MyBookWorld" _http._tcp local. 80 "TXTVersion=1.0" "DeviceModel=WDH2NC" "Vendor=WDC" "path=/index.php"
"MyBookWorld" _daap._tcp local. 3689 "TXTVersion=1.0" "DeviceModel=WDH2NC" "Vendor=WDC"
"MyBookWorld" _afpovertcp._tcp local. 548 "TXTVersion=1.0" "DeviceModel=WDH2NC" "Vendor=WDC"
Today I upgraded both network drives to latest firmware 01.02.10 but detected that I can no longer hide the "MyBookWorld-Backup" share/entry from Snow Leopard's (10.6.8) Finder sidebar.
Namely, any edit I perform on file /etc/mDNSResponder.conf is reverted back to its original contents upon reboot.
I kept a backup file and completely removed the "MyBookWorld-Backup" reference; when rebooted, it was still there.
Can anyone help and perhaps provide a different, more robust method of disabling the "MyBookWorld-Backup" share?
I don't want to edit the original/default files (not to mention I don't know where they are stored) but is there some other way to disable the TimeMachine backup service altogether?
Thank you in advance.
