Join RC as he goes over the goals and intent of this class.
Learn what it means to have a NAS, or Network Attached Storage, and how it works.
After plugging in the drives and powering up the unit there are a few more things to know about getting your device set up.
With the software installed you can move forward with configuring the device to use the drives you have installed.
These units are all expandable and you will want to know how to scale up by adding new drives.
Inside the Control Panel is where you will configure the device to work on your network.
Before putting data on the device you need to set up a shared folder and its permissions for access.
You\\'ll want to set up user access, permissions, and passwords for management and security.
There are a few ways to approach backing up your data.
Now you are ready to start transferring data between your Synology unit and your workstation.
The Synology unit has its own operating system and you can install programs, called packages, to extend its functionality further.
One option to consider is setting up your Synology to be able to access it over the Web, and even back up the data on your unit to the cloud.
