I upgraded my equipment to a Windows 10 computer, Netgear nighthawk x6 router, TP-Link Switch, Western Digital mycloud ex2 16tb (2 8TB drives)which is connected to my network. I'm an amature user and have always used Truecrypt so naturally I would like to use Veracrypt.
I'm attempting to create a volume on one of the 8TB harddrives contained in the Western Digital. I would like to make the volume size as close to the maximum size of 8tb as I can get. When I go through the process of creating the volume it gives me my drive size, in my case 7.13 TB. When I click format I receive the An unexpected network error occured - Source:volTransformThreadFunction:2744 before it gets off 0% complete. If I lower my size down to 6200GB everything starts up and appears as it will run fine. Anything over 6500GB fails with the error. I have tried in exFAT and NTSF.
I have been looking at this for the last 48 hrs and am out of ideas. Can anyone help me out or give me another path to follow?
