This is my first post on this forum, so please bear with me.
I have had my Linkstation (HD-HLAN160)for some time now, but have only
just found all these discussions etc, I had no idea of the popularity
or hackability of these things.
I have no Linux Knowledge whatsoever, and simply use it for NAS Storage
through Windows XP.
I use the builtin backup Utility to a DriveStation 250 on the rear USB
Port, a bit slow but it is scheduled to run at 4 am ever sunday and
does the trick.
The Linkstation was supplied with V1.47 Firmware, which rather
indicates that it is the PPC Version, am I correct ?.
Some months ago I updated the Firmware to V2.05 (which from what I read
now wasn't the wisest thing to do, given that it must have been a PPC
Version, and I know nothing about Linux)
However the upgrade went faultlessly and it has behaved itself ever
The web console changed and the PCast Stuff added, all appears to be
But I am worried that maybe I have degraded its performance in some
way, and perhaps I should reload the 1.47 F/W.
What do others think ? Any comments would be much appreciated.
