Various NAS Settings

We completed the network, storage, and privileges, which means that we’re close to through with the basic setup. We have taken care of most settings, but there are more options worth a look.

Regional Settings

To timestamp events and files properly, the NAS needs to know where it’s located. The regional settings include timezone settings and automatic updates via NTP servers.

Power and Cooling

The fan’s behaviour is set to the Smart option by default. This is by far the best option in most situations, but you aren’t limited to that. You can also manually set the fans at three different levels. Hard drives can also be put to sleep after some time of inactivity. Safe on the power bill and extend the life of your storage drives.

You can save even more on the running costs with an automated power schedule. Why have the NAS running when you aren’t going to use it anyway? Define a fixed startup and shutdown time for your NAS.

Update, Backup, and Restore

It is vital to keep your systems up-to-date. New updates bring fixes and new features to your existing setup. TOS updates can be applied manually for offline setup or controlled updates. The way to be sure to be up-to-date is the Online Update function. With it, you’ll always get the latest version.

You can backup and restore all your current settings. This is always a good idea to use once you’re done with your basic setup. That way, you always have an option to go back to what worked without having to start from scratch.
