Setup – Users, Services & Backup


Users

An NAS is no good without users, so we need to create those too. You should only use the admin user for administration purposes and create yourself a normal user too. But ultimately, how you create your setup is your choice, this is just one way to do it.

You can do a lot more than just give the new user a name, you can also set a description, email and optionally send out an email that the user was created, but also shared folder permissions and applications that user is allowed to access.

User Groups

User groups make it easier to both keep control of your users as well as what they have access to. You can quickly add or remove rights for a whole list of users at once and I highly recommend taking advantage of this feature if more than just a couple of people have access to the NAS.

Creating new users groups only takes a few information, actually the only information needed is the name. But you can also add shared folder rights and users right away from the already created.

Shared Folders

When initializing the NAS, a group of default folders are generated to be used with the build-in functions, but that doesn’t mean that these are enough for you. You can create pretty much unlimited folders and share them with just the users and groups you want.

You can add a description when creating your shared folder, helping you to keep an overview on what is destined for what.

You got a list of advanced settings when creating a new shared folder from guest rights to how the NAS should tret the folder. Media folders for example get automatic thumbnail creating.
