External Devices




If you have a drive attached to the system with eSATA or USB it is possible to format the drive before making it available to the system.




Plugging in a printer to a QNAP NAS server is an easy way to make a printer available to everyone on the network. Here you can manage each printer installed.




No storage device is completely secure without a UPS "battery backup" to keep the juice flowing during a power outage. Here you can setup specific functions.


System Status




One of the nicest features of the AJAX software is instant real time updates. On the System Information page we are able to see exactly how each component of the NAS is functioning.




The System Services page allows for easy confirmation that a service is enabled or disabled.




The Resource Monitor page gives real time status updates that cover CPU Usage, Disk Space and Bandwidth Transfer.
