    Lost access to Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220

After doing this I spotted what looked like a HDD error reported form the NAS OS and then...

    Curious to find out what the best mod is. Getting a little frustrated with the updates since 4.1.2 (actually back on my S3). Things seem to function better (along with recognizing different docks and which app to run for specific dock) then. Or maybe it's the Samsung GUI (TouchWiz).
