    I am unable to write to my external USB drive. I don't know where to go and allow the USB drive to be writable. I cannot copy files to it or create folders on it while it is plugged into my matricom box

    I have a 2 tb wd hd with 1.1.gb remaining inside this drive after trying to transfer the 5 gb inside to my shield. The shield has plenty space for the 5 gb to hold. It appears the 1.1 gb is all DL apps. Only the data left the 2 tb drive I need to know how I can return the 1.1 gb to the shield. Thank you

    Thanks for the video! Do you have any experience with ext4 formatted drives? Android seems to recognize ntfs drives fine, but movies streaming from the drive stutter badly (and drive access is virtually constant at all times for no apparent reason). Ext4 formatted drives (my preference) which should be recognized – after all, the basis of android is linux – are not recognized at all! Any ideas?

    EFS runs on android, NOT on Kodi. Running "clean" will touch nothing in Kodi, only android. Using clean is for cache files (used for loading apps faster), temp files, and other junk including, sometimes, apps not used in a long time. Get the info right and, note, there is not on piece on info to tell how to transfer files. Any beginner nerd can connect a drive but a nerd would show how to use the hdd connected.

    But my Mbox still says I only have standard internal storage and will not let me use my USB or SD Card for storage for Movie Downloads from software like Show Box? How do I make the Mbox recognize these as INTERNAL Storage? I have tried formatting for Internal use… No luck. So far, the MBox ix marginally operational because of the tiny storage space within and the lack of ability to add storage space, so in my opinion, it stinks

    Is there any way to connect two hard drives set up as mirrors? Any raid or lvm mirror, any dedicated android app?
    It would be quite nice option to have stored securely your collection of pics, movies, music, anything.
    Any ideas about it?

    You said in your video you can hook up any size hard drive to an android box. I have A WD 2 tb drive format in NTFS and the system does not see the drive. If I put it in fat 32 it does it sees the drive. Does anyone know what the problem it might be? Leelbox M8S pro

    I have tried two drives. Both of them seem to work fine under the File Manager but in Kodi, the drives are read-only. I can't figure a way to give write permissions.
