What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Home Network Attached Storage Excellent Network Storage Device for your home. Provides central backup location, great for sharing photo's and video throughout your home to all your network devices. Easy to access over the internet with smart phones and ipads. Price is unbeatable and large home videos can be stored and moved to Blu-ray with the built-in burner to mail to other family members. All that is lacking is the poor interface. Might be difficult for user without some basic computer usage skills, needs better interface.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LifeSaver And I don't mean the candy. The NAS system makes daily backups a breeze and because that was the case, when my system crashed hard and I needed to restore, I was back in business in under 2 hours. The Blu-ray writer is a real plus to making offsite backups of a good chunk of data. I would recommend this to my friends and would buy another.

RAID 1 configuration questions for N2B1

I have a NAS drive, model # N2B1. I configured Volume 1 to be RAID 1 (Mirroring). It only shows one drive letter (though both disks appear in the Hard Disk status web menu). Can I assume that the 2nd disk is the failover disk? Also, if disk 1 fails, how do I access the data from the 2nd disk? Final question: how frequently does the sync occur between disks 1 and 2? Thanks for your help!
Asked by: Tappanzee
Raid 1 is simply mirroring of both drives, the data is the written to both at the same time and read from the active drive. Should the active drive fail, the N2B1 will automatically make the second drive primary and alarm you to the failed drive that needs to be replaced. Once you install the new drive, the rebuild is automatic. You would then have to go into the brouser software to change the primary drive back to the new drive, or you can simply keep the original second drive as primary active automatically.

Lion copatibility

I does the update (1.0.0_2660) and still need to smb to access HD still. Also can't use print server, time machine, iTunes....GRRRRR why???????
Asked by: Photoman
We regret the delays you have experienced with getting this update. The last ETA date we have listed for this particular model was November 18th. Some updates have been released, so this is being worked. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have an ETA data available for you. However, it may be possible to use the alternate protocol, .SMB. To access it from a Mac, select Finder, and then 'Go' and then 'Connect to Server'. From there, you will have to type smb://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (the ip address for the NAS). Once this process is complete, you should be able to access the drive. If you need additional information about this situation, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
