You don't *have* to use MioNet to access the drive if it's on your LAN. You only need MioNet for access from outside your house or office.

1) Access the Samba share directly. Find the IP address of your device (you can check your router, use the Western Digital Discovery software, download SoftPerfect's Netscan, or just browse your network devices) and browse to the share by IP (\\<IPAddress>), which will give you access to the shares through Explorer. This may not work if you copied files into the "IDxxxxx" folder that MioNet created. If thats the case, let me know, and I'll put together some instructions to help you get to it.

2) Go to, login, and use the web interface.

Macrium Reflect Free Edition -- DOESN'T WORK FOR ME
Hi all seeing a lot of positive posts over Macrium Reflect I thought I would try out the FREE edition. NO GOOD -- if a STAND ALONE BOOTABLE CD DOESN'T WORK THEN THE WHOLE THING IS USELESS. The whole point of decent backup / recovery is that you should be able to restore an image using a...

Above is configured for Raid 0 or stripping and is a 1 TB as opposed to two 500 GB. External works fine on Win 7 but the Raid software that allows you to configure does not work. Anyone else running this external disk?
