Seagate NAS Shared Folders

File Protocol Support: Files are shared between computers on a network using standard file protocols. You can set a shared folder to support any or all of these protocols:

  • CIFS (Common Internet File System): People with different computers running Windows operating systems can share files without having to install special software.
  • FTP (File Transfer Protocol): Provides secure file sharing over the internet between your Seagate NAS and other computers.
  • NFS (Network File System): Provides file sharing with computers running Linux or UNIX operating systems or computers running NFS client software.
  • AFP (Apple Filing Protocol): A proprietary network protocol that offers file services for Mac OS X and original Mac OS.
  • WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning): An extension of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that facilitates collaboration between users in editing and managing documents and files stored on World Wide Web servers.
  • RB (Recycle Bin Service): Protect the files on a shared folder by enabling the Recycle Bin Manager. When the Recycle Bin Manager is enabled on a share, the NAS Manager application saves files deleted from the shared folder so that they can be retrieved.
  • MS (Media Service): Set a shared folder to automatically download media files to a specific location on a Seagate NAS
