However, operations with files is not the only thing YES N2100 Box can do. It can also function as an iTunes server in your local network. All you need to do in this case is to enable the corresponding service in the menu and upload some music into the iTunes folder. Once N2100 has finished scanning the folder, all the network users who have enabled “check for shared music” option in their iTunes, will get access to the music files stored on the Thecus server.
The next function of the Thecus N2100 server is the picture gallery. It is arranged in an even simpler manner than all other features. You simply upload the pictures you would like to share with your friends or family members into a dedicated folder and all the additional things such as galleries, preview thumbnails, etc. will be done automatically by the device. Unfortunately, I cannot offer you a screenshot illustrating this feature, because this option is not supported in the latest firmware version. N2100 doesn’t allow moving back to the previous firmware version as well.
Quick Copy from USB Devices
This was the last function that I decided to pay special attention to. It will be especially valuable for flash drive owners or those users whose computer recognizes their cameras as a regular storage device. All you need to do is to insert the flash drive into the front panel USB port, press the button and in a few moments you will get a complete copy of all your data in a special folder on the server. To avoid confusion with the copies you create, each folder contains the date and time of the copy process. It is impossible to really measure the copying speed, because there are no indicators available, but according to my approximations it is about 6MB/s for an Apacer USB 2.0 flash drive.
