I bought two more HD363N cases and the latest ones seem to have
quieter fans, much quieter. Not sure if they were using sleeve
bearing fans and switched to ball bearing types, but there are ball
bearing 25x25x10mm fans available for less than $5 so I bought some
and the shipping was about $7 for the batch of fans.
My primary use of the devices is to setup FTP servers. The HD363 lets
you setup ports other than 21, which is helpful, and it supports both
Anonymous and Username/Password access, which isn't supported by some
SOHO NAS devices.
As to all the messages about EOF problems, it would be helpful to have
a list of applications that don't work. A list of apps that DO work
include Word for Windows, WordPad, Ultraedit, Edlin, Edit.
If you have Notepad, you have Wordpad. Try the "open with" Wordpad, do
the experiments described for Notepad, and you will find that the
filesize is correctly reported, and none of the extra characters
appear at the end of the file as they do in Notepad (because Notepad
file close doesn't cause the directory filesize to be updated).
Excel also works fine. Create a worksheet with 200 rows of 2 columns,
the row number and lots of Asterisks, save it. Close Excel. etc
you will find that the directory entry (in the file properties)
properly reflects changes in the filesize, and inserting, deleting
rows does not produce the problem seen with Notepad.
I think the file closing problem is a Windows application issue as
much as anything, and using Notepad for editing text files --- well,
there are better text and other editors, that work correctly.
Notepad, unfortunately, isn't a very capable text editor and it
clearly has problems.
