    Hey all! Crusty here. Now that I have my three computers working correctly with Macrium and my WD MyCloudEX2 Ultra I have a disturbing observation to report. I wanted to get this working so that I could schedule imaging without having to go through the process of remembering to connect up a USB drive. Should be painless - right? WRONG!! Macrium Image Guardian will not, in fact CAN NOT, protect any saved image from tampering, deleting or encrypting if it is saved to my NAS. This is so disappointing in today's threat environment. It has to do, I believe, with the disk formatting. Image Guardian only works with the NTFS disk format. My NAS, as most other such devices, are controlled by a Linux distro. Guess what disk format they use? It is ext4 I believe. So, I am screwed out of $700 I paid for the NAS or I must return it for a refund. The story of my life!
