Today, bluevelvetrestaurant.com would like to introduce to you WD My Book World Edition (White Light) 3 TB Upgrade – NAS-Router-Laptop Testing. Following along are instructions in the video below:
“Welcome to part 4 of this final installment or series of presentations that are done done on this upgraded single venous hard drive from western digital. My book or edition. Light which had its default factory installed hard drive of one terabyte capacity upgraded to amazing 3 terabytes making this a very unique model that the risk because only one and two terabyte models exist for this type of single various hard drive from the western digital. So it s still new same drive so in this part of the presentation.
I m going to be connecting this and s drive finally to the internet via this ethernet cable and that will be accessing. It wirelessly through one of my route routers through this laptop and going through the network storage manager submenu on the web administration. Page. A bit more thoroughly and also giving you the final confirmation that this is a working three terabyte model.
So without further ado. Let s connect the power as we have previously you know we re going to attach the line cable. Which the other side is connected to a modem wired wireless router. Which then goes or has access to the internet as you can see the nazarov is firmly in place powered up and connected to the local area network via that ethernet cable that you can see in front of you which i ve mentioned to you in part three that it has access to my modem wired wireless router.
Which of course then has connection to the internet. So now we re just going to look at whether the drive is accessible under network perfect. It s available both icons and also this one might work well with me. Which means that i have set the nash drive to be in the same workgroup.
But you probably won t have this because i ve already preset it some of the settings on the nascar drive so we re going to just want to locate this icon to see what is the ip address for the web administration. It has changed accordingly. It s not the same one as it was in part three when the drive was connected just to the laptop via the laptops lan port. It has changed this is the ip address.
Which has been assigned by the wired or wireless router of my machine or more. Specifically. Dhcp. Now.
If you wanted to reconnect your public or download. Folders. This would be the ip address to go about it something also worthwhile. Mentioning here that if you want those two folders or other ones to be connected and visible and most importantly accessible on their computer.
Or my computer. At all time. You need to set strive to have a static ip address or reserve. A specific ip address that will be assigned only for the nearest hard drive.
Let s see if i can still mount both two folders under this sub network ip address. Perfect. It still works all right so nothing has changed after still in working order. Even when the drive is finally and actually as it should be connected to your wired or wireless.
Router. Let s zoom out a little bit. So you ll be able to see a little bit of the label of the drive to again give you the confirmation. It s still the same drive.
I haven t changed it oh i swapped it with another one or fooled you in any other way zoom in a little bit later so for now. This is confirmed in working order. I was just going to click on this web administration page in order to access the main administration page for the nascar driver intent we re going to login into the network storage manager submenu the number at the end changed because i m basically recording this video. I mean this part of the video onwards more than pretty much a month later so i had to during this time disconnected the nostalgia.
They reconnected so i ll just click on this and then is the username and also the password for the network storage manager. So everything is still okay and available under basic mode. But i m going to choose advanced mode. Because i like to set everything into detail so our system functions are accessible.
Let s look at network. Still okay. Storage also find media users and status all right let s see if the help is also available all right perfect. So also help is there to help us or guide us if we get lost.
So. Let s have a look at system status. So this is again the ip address. Which has changed it s not 19 and here at the end because like i said.
I m recording this part of the video onwards well over one month later i started on the 2nd of november. But i had to postpone so basically recording this part of this video presentation from here on on the 10th of december 2017. And again here you have through this data volume usage. Another confirmation.
This is a three terabyte upgrade all right then this is that let s look at the system locks. If it s also available and it works all right perfect. Nice everything works. Let s see if we can clear it alright.
Nice. Let s look at this option also available this one good and settings alright everything is available even if you upgrade..
The drive on this nice hard drive for the closure and the allotted controller. Now let s go to users all right let s look at this option users. So basically here you can add various users who will be able to access the nice hard drive set the various credentials someone can only see the files. Therefore reads someone can also make changes therefore right and and so forth.
I ve already added the mod here. But basically he has pretty much administrator privileges. Let s have a look what each option has to offer all right you can also here created groups. But we ll look on that a little later all right let s look at mod.
Yeah. Right the administration writes so everything works as it should of course you cannot delete the mod because you know. This is something i created additionally buddy cannot delete admin and wd backup. Let s see what what this says this one doesn t have an administration rights.
Let s leave it as such so that s for users now we re going to look at groups. No groups of course. Naturally. Let s see if we can add a group.
If the option is available ok perfect. So what is the purpose of this group option. Let s see what the help has to say about it ok nothing in particular. But my guess is that if let s say you want a certain number of users to access specific holders without going into detail to set the individual credentials for their off.
You can just simply add them to a group and then assign credentials to a folder based on people who are in a group. You can do that so you don t need to send individual credentials for each user. So somebody who is in a group can have rights such as only to read certain folders. But they cannot change the contents of their off and similar alright fine.
Let s go back all right. Let s look at folder share permissions option. If it s available accessible all right everything looks to be in working order. I already created a private folder.
And said. The necessary settings. Let s see so this would be what i was talking about pretty much so. Here.
We have credentials set or assigned. For this private folder and they re set. Individually. So.
The only one who has full access is the mod and the users who don t have any access or wd backup and admin. So they cannot access the contents of the private folder and they cannot modify it so not even read it nothing. But this is where you would probably make additional changes or credential settings based on if you if all of these users. Which are currently available would be in a group.
So this is really handy. This is pretty much like how we would set credentials on a ph bbb forum. For instance. So this option also works is available.
Let s see the other how are with the other folders. So here we have just these options. But everything is in working order everything can be set. I m not going to go into that last one so we re just going to look at usb share permissions.
Okay this option would be again much more explain in detail if i would have had an additional external western. Digital hard drive that i would connect to the usb 20. Port on the back of this nice hard drive all right that s good everything s also accessible now we re probably going to look at media. All right let s click the video server that s probably the twankey media server.
So i ll most likely be redirected to that web administration page that i showed you in part 3. But let s let s see yeah. I was right so instead of clicking on to that second icon in network. You can just also set the twankey media server settings through this through this option.
Let s look at itunes. So again also everything accessible working alright. So that is for media. Now we re going to go in through the storage submenu all right now let s look at the disk manager.
Again another confirmation that this is a working three terabyte upgrade not only through the sides. But also through the description. Which tells you which hard drive is in the nass enclosure itself. I ll adjust the camera.
So again you can have a look at the hard drive so every position. The camera..
So you can see again the hard drive inside the enclosure of this ness western digital product. I ll use my flashlight to shine on the drive. Because the lightning is poor maybe. It won t be enough to see the rest of the data on the sticker.
Maybe i ll try to reposition the camera again there we go right below serial. Number under the mdl you can see the drive is model in much more detail. So it is the same hard drive now that hasn t been changed swab. This is an act fake and so forth and another much more condensed view.
Maybe you ll be able to make out the numbers in the mdl section. Right below serial number on the sticker of the drive alright let s move on so this manager sub option is checked out let s locate volume status also perfect again another confirmation. This is at retail right upgrade this show you zero course. The drive is pretty much empty.
Let s go to the other options they re accessible. It s like it s folder shares that s that probably won t be any different. Then the users. Option yeah.
So basically have currently available route share folders and the which services. Run or are allowed to run under each folder private is something that i ve said prior to that let s have a look. Yeah. So basically you can here take various service services.
That you want to run under a specific root folder. You can delete also i can also delete private. But not the other two so let s see what some of the usb disks. Yeah actually of course this is for expansion therefore that usb 20.
Port on the back of the net hard drive so if i would have had an external person digital hard drive then i could probably see this little options here quota. You can probably already guess. What is that about yeah can basically enable quotas service on the snatch drive. So managing how much space each individual or each user can take up this is probably yeah you can here set.
The individual quota rights or credentials for each user that exists or its register and on this nice contract. I don t know let s have a look at one of these mmm perfect also available so i think he s corrupted everything is still available now the last downloads. So this is probably for if you re using to micro torrent and similar services. So where do you want those downloads to go you can also change them to two other folders public private and other ones of your choosing.
And crusade. You can change the default password alright. Now next up is network. Now let s have a look at the lens submenu option.
If it is accessible one it displays all right everything seems to be working. So let s see yeah. Here you can also then assign a static ip address on the next. Hard drive itself.
Therefore. Enabling you could say all time. Accessibility. Unless you want to go into the network icon or option in windows.
We still have to rebound all of those routes folders on my computer. So if you want to fill up with that fine. But if you want something all the folders to be accessible to all the users on your network. Then you would probably have to assign a static ip address to this nascar job.
So. This is also available in working order. Let s see what services options so here you can also send the various services. That you want to be available or to run on this nice hard drive and additional options so everything is again available.
It s not grayed out or disabled or if you would have clicked to this we ll get an error. So this is again a fully functional working three terabyte upgrade with all of its original features available. So workgroup. Yeah.
So here you can sign way that you want to be in a work group or a domain. Neighbor. Member. Also available the workgroup option is what you have seen it pretty much at the beginning of this video presentation.
When i went to the network option in the vista that is also how you can access the drive. Let s see what s under remote access. If it s also available good also available working. So this is probably for is it says remote access.
If you want to access this next hard drive outside of your own home network. I haven t used this service..
So i don t know how to really know about it. So i don t have a my own account. And so forth. So that s for network and then we have the last submenu in the advanced mode.
And that is system so this is the last stop probably in this entire video presentation. If you manage to stick around for this long. Congratulations. Now.
Let s go through all of these sub menus or sub options. Under system. For the last time. Well.
Basically. The first time. So. General setup also available accessible.
So here you can set the various options also you want to name your next hard drive and the device name the time zone. The time server. I don t need to so this is also working worth more available let s see alert set up uh huh. Okay.
This is also available. I actually never use this because i haven t used this nice hard drive as much so email notification yeah. So would probably here set up the various options and settings to enable notification sent to your email address or various of the rough. That you have not going to go into this.
So i ll just unclick and look at this yeah. So this is also alright. Oh. I don t know how this works.
So let s look at what the help maybe has to say interesting temperature hard drive volume usb using group events. Useful. This is almost like a security feature as such so. That is also accessible available ok will probably change.
The admin password. Let s see if you can yeah. I m not going to do this. But just to show you that the menu in the options are available updates this next hard drive comes with the latest and last firmware.
There aren t any new ones out not even i don t probably not even custom ones. But i haven t researched that field very much so this is the last firmware that is available you can also update or revert to an older firmware. If you wish. But you know with the new one do or the last one there aren t any problems unlike.
The western digital. My cloud which we know has a lot of problems with the latest four point xx version firmware. But that is another topic for another video discussion. So everything is also available in yeah.
Working. There we have the store configuration. See what s under here were you impossible ok so we can also save all the settings that you have under all of these some manuals perfect everything works. If you do it right let s see what s under advanced huh root access.
Yeah. So if you want to make additional changes or hacks to the nest. Hard drive you would of course have to enable this and then through putty program. Make the necessary changes as such these are some.
Other options here. You can also disable is the hard drive going into standby mode and the indicator lights. Which are here so this with this we can fiddle around let s see if we disable them they ll turn off hey perfect all right let s enable them back. And let s see if they ll turn on again.
What the hell. Hello alright. So that works awesome with a little jet lag. If you want to call it so the last option reboot or shut down let s see if it s also accessible alright perfect.
But i m not going to go into these two right now. I just wanted to see if they re available. So that s pretty much about it for this entire video presentation before i wrap up this video presentation part 4. I m thinking if i could just you know briefly guide you through the basic a mode basically show you a comparison.
How it differs from the advanced mode. Well let s go about it very quickly so device name..
This is all the options that you can set here date. And time mmm. So this is this part very elementary netbook. So here you can decide where they want to static or a dynamic ip address assigned to you nice hard drive.
Users you can come add all the users and make the necessary credentials folder shares and i can create new folders and then assign various settings system status mmm ok. Another confirmation. This is a three terabyte working upgrade the more axes that probably won t be any different than that yeah. It s the same and this option probably also won t be any different than the previous one yeah.
It s also the same now right before i wrap up this video presentation. I m just going to give you one last time. The comparison or the proof. Again this is the same hard drive that i have inside enclosure.
So the numbers here match the ones on the screen. So this is possible and doable before i really say goodbye for the final time and end this well to my standards. Awful too. Long.
A video presentation or video proof for this working. 3 terabyte upgrade for this person digital. Nice hard drive. I m going to mention a few things so basic future announcements.
If you want to call it originally when i embarked on this journey to make a couple of videos. Video presentations video. Proves that this is a working. 3 terabyte.
Operate or model. As such i always thought that i will make maybe 3 videos. But then when i made sort of a plan on what i m going to say in each video. I soon realized that this is not going to be only a sort of a three three part series on this nice hard drive so when i also i had additional ideas that started pouring into my mind.
I saw this couldn t really become lengthy. So i decided to make smaller videos. But even these smaller videos are really long because i go into detail to prove that every function in terms of operating system. That is installed on the best hard drive is available is it s not grayed out or disabled.
So you can t make this upgrade or this leap in capacity upgrade will go so. This is not something that only people with specific knowledge can achieve. It s because in order to make this upgrade. It s actually really easy from the software.
Viewpoint speaking. Part four is not the final video in this entire video series on this there s hard drive in terms of its achievement hack upgrade. Even when i was recording part three making the plan for it. But i m going to say i knew that after part four there s going to be sort of a conclusion video.
Where i would address concerns and limitations in terms of how high you can go in terms of upgrading. The internal hard drive on this nasa enclosure is such so what is the maximum capacity and also what color classification oriented western digital. Editions. Hard drives are supported.
So. This is a sort of a spoiler alert to part five or should. I say actually part six video that will be actually they actually really the last one while i m still thinking about whether i should do part five or just include the conclusion or video. Nevertheless part five is going to be centered on basically showing you how to access this nice hard drive and of course.
Giving you another confirmation that this is a working three terabyte model. Part five is going to be centered on where i m going to be recording the video itself on my samsung galaxy note. 4 smartphones so how to access your hard drive through your phone of course in my case this will be done only while i m still connected in the same home network. But nevertheless so the phone that i m going to be using for part five if it s going to give birth is samsung.
Galaxy note. 4. This is also the phone that i have made all of my videos on my youtube channel. If i haven t mentioned it already the model is sm 910.
See if you re really interested these are the plans how i plan to guide this ship into harbor and finally conclude this video series on this nice hard drive if you manage to stick around again through part 4 from start to finish congratulations. So if you found the presentation. Interesting. If you want to add something point out that i misspelled something or i made mistakes somewhere let me know in the comment section below.
So like comment share. And if you want to subscribe that will also be great this is david or dave telling you goodbye. It will see you in part 5 or the conclusion. ” .
