    I connect my external HDDs to Z9x pro via a powered USB HUB, I turned on the smb server and try to visit those HDDs through a laptop running win10. I can see all the HDDs and internal storage though the HDD name are kind of strange. But when I enter those HDDs I can't see most of the files and directories except for one or two directories.

    I can confirm the problem, but I don't think it is the problem of Samba Server. I installed an IPTV app and wanted to restore the backup from the app, the app has this function. I did the backup on the UHD3000 and saved the backup file to different locations on the Z2000Pro, USB stick, local hard drive, download folder in the system. However, when selecting all the locations, only empty directories are displayed.
    Local data is only displayed in the Media Centre.

    Indeed, if you had the info at the time. I wondered if maybe they had updated since and maybe you did not have time to update the thread :)

    Aye, I have this same issue on a new Z2000 Pro ...

    The internal Zidoo drive is fine, and I can see all the folders from my PC and Laptop but the Seagate 10TB drive I have inside the Z2000 Pro is limited on what folder I can view.

    It's a bug with drives formatted as NTFS and will be fixed with a firmware update.

    Hello, I have two Zidoo Z20 Pros, I have a 10 TB internal disk and it is impossible to read the disk from Windows despite SMB being activated, the disk appears empty

    Hi I installed the Alpha firmware, yes I know you shouldn't do that, but I can say the problem with SMB has been solved for me. I can now see all files via SMB from Windows, and get full copy speeds of 80 MB/s to 100 MB/s.
    So it can't take too long until a working firmware appears. Of course, it depends on how many errors the Alpha firmware contains or how many bugs they want to fix besides the SMB.

    But I only tested this quickly with a 4 GB file. I don't have enough time today to test SMB copying in detail

    Where can we find the Alpha version?

    You should ask @McBluna and his wonderful website (full-packed of resources and information about all Zidoo devices). Seriously unthinkable without it...

    Yes it is on @McBluna Website
    But I don't recommend installing it, because sometimes I have a error that my movies don't start to play, after installing this firmware. Then I have to reboot my player. This happens not often, but sometimes. Decide for yourself whether you want to install it or not
