I have downloaded Dropbear to enable SSH access to Droboshare. I have reasonable facility with Linux, but want to make sure that any changes I make to the busybox installation of Linux do not have harmful effects on the behviour of my Droboshare. (Like many I am trying to preserve file permissions and attempting to enable large file support under samba among other things).
Is there a way to completely reset the DroboShare to its factory settings the way it came out of the box? For instance, if I create new files or folders in the directory tree (on DroboShare itself, not the mounted drives!) those seem to be maintained no matter what. If i use the paperclip reset on the back of DroboShare it only resets the basic settings in the dashboard and if I try to manually update the firmware that doesn’t give me a fresh installation either (although some directories seem to have updated time stamps). In both cases the files and directories that I manually created remain. I know I can easily delete these, but I am just using these to illustrate the point that the DroboShare isn’t completely reset. It seems like there should be a way to revert to a mint fresh busybox installation. I mean it had to get on there in the first place.
