On the 323 that I reverted back to 1.09, a couple of weeks ago, I installed 1.10 rev 6.  Again the printing function goes bye-bye.  To get it back I had to reset the box to defaults and delete / reconnect to the printer.  Not a big deal but annoying and time consuming.
My suggestion would be not to play with Beta code then. Wait for a full release then you only have to configure once every year or so. Also, if you save your configuration, if you go back to a previous release, then you can simply load the associated config file.

So looking over the features/updates of the Beta 1.10.  It shows that there is support for 4k drives.
Does that mean that it will work with Western Digital Green drives, such as;
WD20EARS Caviar Green?

Edit, sorry did a bit more reading of other posts, and it looks like they will work.

What if you buy the product based on what it can do and a year down the track a new firmware is released that removes or changes what it can do, can't take it back for your money back you just have to live with it.
This is what D-Link has done with the DNS323 and they don't seem to care, when there are bugs to fix and they release a major firmware from 1.08 to 1.09 that does nothing for the masses NOT ONE BUG FIXED and they are telling us the end of the year for a new firmware IMO this is not good enough.

If I could take my unit back and spend $100-$200 more for something else I would and when I'm in the market for another NAS what one do your think I'm NOT going to buy...

Well you could wait for the new drives with Thunderbolt Support....

A problem I was having with the previous beta build while using upnp with Windows Media Player on Windows 7 was that the dns-323 would only show the first song of each album. Does anyone know if this is an issue with the dns-323 (versus an end-user-problem) and if yes, did the beta 10 build resolve it?

I'd like to ask D-Link Multimedia if there's a new function/option through the formatting process in fw 1.10 to set the sector size to 4K or the NAS does that automatically.

Although we had to wait a long time for the AFT support, I'm happy that D-Link finally made it. Thanks.

It is automatically set to 4K. All drives including non-aft drives are now aligned as 4K.

If I upgrade my firmware to 10.? and buy a new AFT 2T drive and format it @ 4K, can I still us my old 2T drive that has not been formatted 4K @ the same time. So I would have one 4K formatted drive and one not 4K formatted drive in the same DNS323 at the same time, would this work?

Are you using it in a Raid? If you are using it in a raid then the answer is no. If it is a stand alone drive then when you format it in the device it would format and align as 4K. If you wanted raid you have to format both drives and align as 4k in order to not corrupt data.

A wee clarification. Is this going to affect existing non-aft disks (either in RAID or not) after a firmware upgrade?

No I am not using RAID, I would be using a new 2T AFT drive with an existing 2T non AFT drive with data on it. I would remove the old 2T drive and insert the new 2T drive to format it, than replace the old 2T drive.

Just in case...

No not necessarily. If you have non-aft drives now and load 1.10 it will continue to work fine. If you decide that you want to format the drives then it will align them as 4k even on non-aft drives. Through our testing this does not cause any significant loss in performance.

Good. Thank you for your prompt reply.

If you are running firmware 1.08 with drives in RAID 1.
Update to firmware 1.10.
Some time in the future one of the drives fails.
You insert a new drive.
Now the questions:
1. Will the new drive be formatted 4k?
2. Will there be any issues?

In that scenario the answer is No. The new drive will not be aligned as 4k since it would cause issues in the Raid with the other non aligned drive. It would be aligned as a regular 512byte drive.
