System Settings

Like most multifunctional devices, these NASes allow to update their firmware. In the current implementation the update process is manual. You must download the file and send it to the NAS via the web-interface. You can also save, restore and reset the device’s settings.

Like a regular computer, the NAS has an integrated clock and calendar which are used for various schedules and event lists. The NAS can notify its administrator about any critical situations via email or by SMS (a paid service).

Besides an ordinary events list, there are detailed reports on the FTP server, data backup system, browser-based file access, etc. You can get an overview of the NAS’s status on the respective page: its name and address, information about the HDDs and disk volumes, etc. The current CPU, memory and network interface usage are displayed by means of real-time animated diagrams.

Power options belong to the system settings as well. You can specify an operation schedule by entering the time for the NAS to start up and shut down on the specified days of the week. Here you can also set the timers for powering off the HDDs and choose the operation mode of the cooling fan.
