Twonky Server on WD My cloud Shared Folders contents

Post by knappers » Thu Jul 10, 2014 12:05 pm

Hi,
Apologies if this has been asked before.

My WD MYCloud NAS server has an issue where everytime I power it off the Shared Folder contents revert to default.

This is very annoying as my music folder contains album art as .jpg and these are then scanned as pictures and put in to the pictures folder.

If I set the contents of these folders to only scan for the content then all is good.

My issue is why does it keep going back to all content types and how can I stop this happening, is there a startup config file which the Twonky service uses? perhaps I could modify this?

Any help appreciated

I have more explanation in this thread
http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-My-Cloud/ ... 712#M16283

in a nuthshell, SSH into the NAS, and then do the following
rename this file "/usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh"
from this "writeTwonkyContentDir.sh"
to this "writeTwonkyContentDir.sh.old"

Hi Phil

Just to let you know it worked perfectly

The shared folder settings now survive a reboot

Many thanks
