I have watched articles about encryption through this device before, however all have pertained to the conclusion that it is not feasible for this gadget.

You are watching: Wd my cloud encryption

On my neurosoup.orgMC (Gen 1) via the latest firmware (04.05.00-315), I have come throughout an entry in a log file that seems intriguing.


The enattempt "volume_encryption_enabled":0 looks to me prefer an encryption option that is not set off. Is this just something left over from an additional neurosoup.org device’s code? Or, is neurosoup.org planning on including encryption in a firmware update?

Hi uploadguy,

You encrypt a RAID volume on a My Cloud drive. Please take a look on the attach below:

I have actually watched posts about encryption through this tool before, but all have concerned the conclusion that it is not feasible for this tool.

On my neurosoup.orgMC (Gen 1) with the latest firmware (04.05.00-315), I have come across an entry in a log file that seems intriguing.

On the single bay My Cloud gadgets tright here is NO main support for encryption. Currently (per the attach the previous poster indicated) only the adhering to My Cloud devices assistance encryption.

Unofficially it may be feasible to permit some develop of encryption with the firmware using SSH and modifying the firmware. However, I don’t respeak to any type of past discussions wbelow it did well using the My Cloud firmware.

You might desire to look at the discussions that focus on replacing the My Cloud firmware with another firmware/OS to watch if any kind of of those firmware/OS support encryption of the tough drive contents.

You really don’t believe what you just posted do you? From what I’ve check out on this forum. Contacting support is choose talking to the wall. How many times have world reported difficulties that are still not solved. World class assistance would certainly be monitoring this forum and fixing the problems that are reported.

Hi Bennor,

Maybe you have to try contacting neurosoup.org’s Technical Support around this.

Why? The single bay My Cloud devices, at least my initially gen v4.x, carry out not have a RAID choice favor the multi bay units have. As such it cannot officially be encrypted using the strategy you linked to. The OP indicated they had a first gen My Cloud.

At this time if I desire to encrypt files/folders I usage a separate third party regime to carry out so.

The OP is asking around the "volume_encryption_enabled":0 value they discovered in the log(s) on their first gen single bay My Cloud unit. If tbelow is an main way that neurosoup.org Support have the right to enable this on initially gen My Cloud devices then please post the solution for the OP. If tright here is an unofficial means to allow volume encryption then hopefully someone will write-up the strategy.

Maybe you must attempt contacting neurosoup.org’s Technical Support about this

Maybe you must try reading the articles even more carefully; Bennor is responding to the OP’s question, not asking a question…
