I have a NAS drive and suffered a file corruption issue over wireless. I discovered that the drive is not set as removable so if the connection is interrupted while you're using an application to access files on the drive, you can get corrupted files.
I've tried the drive properties and other basic Windows controls and no joy - the options to disable write caching are grayed out. This is apparently a hardware-side flag that's set by the maker, which to me is incredibly naive / irresponsible for a home storage device. A home NAS device plugged into a wireless router needs maximum fault tolerance, not zero fault tolerance.
Is there any way anyone knows of to get Windows 7 to treat the network drive as removable? I'm looking for registry hacks, third-party tools and/or other ways to break the rules without breaking any laws. Thanks for any help!
Update per first response - it's an IOCell NDAS device. It uses its own network driver apparently created from IPX/SPX, so it does not require an IP address. I'm pretty sure that this is a common problem with NAS devices based on my research to date though :\
