Defraggle a HDD in a Western Digital MyCloud NAS


Recommended Posts

Hello, how does one get defraggler to recognize MyCloud NAS shares/disks/folders? All I see in the degraffler drive tree is my C drive. Would be nice to maximize these high capacity platter based drives in my NAS.

thank you in advance,

jeffro.

Windows defragmenter doesn't see MyCloud drives either.

I think that you would have to connect it directly to a computer rather than the router.

But there again aren't they Unix/Linux which shouldn't need defragging?

Do Western Digital have a defragging app for them ?

Doesn't the NAS utilities for the brand of NAS you bought have something for that such as an app in their console software? I personally wouldn't use a 3rd party tool to do it, especially if it isn't explicitly supported by the NAS you use.
