Download Station, which was found on previous QNAP OS software, has taken on a slight facelift. Here we still have the ability to download files through HTTP, FTP, BitTorrent and RSS.
File Station allows for managing your data without the need to mount the NAS as a drive. From here you have access to everything stored on the NAS, along with the ability to open a second file manager and drag and drop between folders.
Backup Station allows for Rsync backup and restoration from NAS to NAS, along with Time Machine service for backing up critical data on your Apple powered devices. Additionally, QNAP has included access to Amazon S3, Elephant Drive and Symform.
MyQNAPCloud offers users the ability to connect to and manage their NAS from anywhere in the network from any device. Additionally, CloudLink allows for NAS management on the go from your tablet or smartphone.
QSync is another innovative application from the folks at QNAP. After installing the appropriate application to your iOS, Macintosh, PC or Android device, you can sync your files directly to the NAS automatically.
Anti-Virus, is a feature that caught on mid-2012. Here you can set the Anti-Virus software to run on a schedule along with updating definitions regularly.
From the main menu, you will find the options menu at the top right. From within the options menu you have the ability to add an administrator's email, change the desktop wallpaper and the admin password.
Taking advantage of the ability to customize the desktop, I installed my favorite wallpaper.
