I have been running the Optware on MyBook World Edition White Light 1TB for a few years, mainly using Transmission. I have limited Linux skills so at that time I ended up using the FeaturePacks script.
Today, I don't know what went through my mind, I updated the latest firmware automatically. Only then I realised that has reset everything for me. So I went back to this website to figure out how I did it all then. I attempted the hack on this website using command line which didn't work. So I used the FeaturePacks script again. After a few tweaking, including trying to update the SSH root password, I rebooted the NAS.
I was doing something else in a different tab on the browser, a pop up came up from the MyBook admin screen which I couldn't read as the pop up closed as at that moment I have already pressed spacebar. I couldn't connect back to MyBook after the reboot and thought I will let it wait for a little and try reconnecting again.
Sure enough, I could reconnect MyBook after waiting for a little longer. But as I went back in, I realised, all my data I had in the Public and private folders disappeared! I went into the admin interface to double check and the volume usage is showing 0% used….!!! :(
Although only a glimpse of hope, I hope someone here can help me. Thank you in advance for reading this thread!
