Quick access models gets a nice upgrade, where there is now the possibility to add an extra button on the login screen where you can choose the desired module and login with the proper user account. Third-party developers can now set their own icon if they wish.

A handy feature included in V5.02.02 firmware is the ability to back up all local users, groups and permissions. You can save them on a RAID volume and restore when required. There's also the ability to export them to another NAS if required. General upgrades and tweaks are below:

NFS, Samba, SSL certificates, SNMP trap, AFP, Time Zone, and FTP: all those features have been upgraded to new versions and have more options.

The Web UI has been slightly tweaked to be faster and includes full translation

Network UPS function

Added "Read-only" function for public folders

Upgrade process slightly changed and is more detailed

And much more, check the release notes for more details.


The N4100PRO is based on a different architecture, thus the upgrade process is different. It also benefits from a special function: you can now adjust the fan speed. When upgrading a NAS has to be done, the process can be risky, mostly because of outside potential issues. That's why we recommend to back up your RAID before an upgrade. Please keep in mind that downgrades are not possible after installing a new firmware.
