There is quite a lot of interesting things you can find among the NAS’s system settings beside the usual save/restore/reset configuration and firmware update.
The integrated timer with Internet synchronization and email notifications (for two recipients, with support for authorization and encryption) are standard settings, too. The SMS support is a rare setting but you have to subscribe to a paid service to use it. Clickatell settings are available, but they seem to be adaptable for other such providers. You can also keep track of the NAS’s operation via SNMP.
The system offers basic power management capabilities. Besides the turning off of the internal HDDs I mentioned above, the same option can be applied to external USB drives. You can shut the whole NAS down, too, and specify the time and day of week for turning it on and off. The wake-on-power option is going to be useful if you don’t have an UPS.
The logging feature is very advanced and handy. Besides the usual event logs, it allows to keep track of all actions of users of the FTP server and web-based file manager. You can also learn who is connected via network at this moment and check out the details of the data backup system.
Based on flash technology, the system monitoring panel shows load graphs for the CPU (indicating the most resource-consuming applications), system memory, network interfaces as well as the overall and occupied disk space. The status page is informative, too. It shows such information as model name, firmware version, serial number, disk status (including temperature) and data volume status, network settings, external devices, etc.
