Disk Description : WD My Book 111A Media Total Capacity : 3 TB (3,000,558,944,256 Bytes)
Connection Bus : USB Write Status : Read/Write
Connection Type : External S.M.A.R.T. Status : Not Supported
USB Serial Number : Partition Map Scheme : GUID Partition Table
I then clicked into the top level folder in the utility and got this:
Mount Point : /Volumes/My Book Capacity : 3 TB (3,000,214,970,368 Bytes)
Format : Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Available : 1.76 TB (1,764,377,923,584 Bytes)
Owners Enabled : No Used : 1.24 TB (1,235,837,046,784 Bytes)
Number of Folders : 23,561 Number of Files : 148,353
Here is what I get. When I connect to directly to the data USB input (not DAC). The weirdest thing is that I can navigate (through network, not direct USB) to this drive if it is hanging off the time capsule via USB. Also strange is that I cannot (again via Network) access a 600GB directory of FLAC files stored directly in the time capsule (i can see the top level folder but the subfolders containing music do not show up) while another directory with 500GB is easily accessible as are others with mixed storage of 100 GB.
When connected through the USB data port in the back, in music the USB read EIF, and when I click a folder named BUDA shows s up. When I click on BUDA, nothing happens, it just sends me back to the green arrow pointing up.
