I’m trying to take advantage of the usb port on the NAS drive to add additional storage capacity to the NAS.
I have plugged in a USB hard drive and have done the following-
- Logged into the NAS
- I can see the external drive in the pane on the right
- Went to file sharing > Add a shared folder
- Followed the onscreen steps and added the USB drive
- I set permissions to Full Access for all 3 users (Everyone, admin, mwoody)
I can then browse to the NAS in a windows explorer window and see the new shared folder I created and can access the data on the USB hard disk itself through the NAS.
However if I try to write any data to the drive it just says access is denied.
I have tried a number of things to get this working with no luck and just upgraded the firmware to the latest version 02.00.18 but that didn’t help either!
CAn you please advise how to resolve the issue
FYI: I’m very computer literate and have worked with consumer hardware/software for many years so please dont dumb things down to much
Thanks for your time
