The ReadyNAS guides you through the setup with a simple wizard.
Once you make it through the initial setup, you will land here where you get a quick overview of the NAS.
Netgear uses a flexible RAID system by default; you can choose to disable this and use legacy RAID options.
The services tab shows you everything that is enabled on the NAS. As you can see above, we are using SMB and AFP along with having the media server enabled.
Moving on, we have a quick look at the shares menu. This is a Web GUI method of managing users along with your data.
Netgear surprised me by having so many applications ready to go with this appliance, including Plex, Transmission, and Anti-Virus support.
The ReadyCloud software if you choose to enable it will allow you to back up your mobile devices along with your PC and Mac devices.
