Storage / Re: Disable creation of thumbnail folders
« Last post by miltellas on February 04, 2021, 08:37:51 pm »
Buffalo cant or do not want to give solution to this for not understanding reasons.
This "feature" is a nightmare... more like a bad joke. Definitely is a filesystem mess (try to rename, move and copy a media file and see what is happening in the folders) and a harddisk lifespan killer together. That Linkstation LS500 is a bad choice for a family simple and common network attached storage that do not really need "features" specially without a choice to disable them. And if you made a mistake (as many do to save some money) and put an non-nas hdd inside, it will be like 10yo in a year.
Only viable solution to this is to go heavy on money and trash this Linkstation LS500 ordering a Home NAS Station from another company, at least with better support. Maybe one of my worst choices, I wont come back, at least anytime soon. The main reason I didnt trashed it from the start and I prefered to be patient for more than one year is that it wasnt a gift to me and didnt have the money to do it earlier, so I had to live with that having some faith for an official easy solution.

A command line solution from a user mentioned above wasnt understandable at all for me. I tried but not enough info on the Internet. Couldnt find a way to use these commands on any of my windows 10 pcs. Linux maybe?

Server address? 192.168.0.50

Password
Passive mode yes/no
Path ? \\nas\ftpshare

you could always backup your data and reinstall the firmware with a force reformat. then you can set the password to what you want.

It's probably worth noting that the devie going into EM mode is not a good sign, it may indicate that the drive is going bad.

You can update the firmware using LSupdater which you can find on the downloads page for that device.


If you decide to replace the drive there is a pinned thread with info on how to install the firmware starting from a blank drive:

The manual usually has a method for this, they usually involve holding a button during boot. Suddenly I can't remember, does that one even have a button?

Failing that you could connect the drive to a linux system and edit /etc/passwd though that's a bit messy.
