A share is a network volume that you can configure to store and share data. Your LaCie NAS has two shares by default: admin and Public. Following the initial login, the share admin will change to the name used by the administrator. For example, if the administrator changes the default login “admin” to “John”, the share admin will become John.
The following table sums up the differences between them:
|admin||Private, accessible only to admin by default||Password-protected (user password)||Computers on the network and remote access (must be enabled)|
|Public||Public, accessible to any user on the network||None||Computers on the network and remote access (must be enabled)|
It is also possible to create new shares and/or to delete the default shares. See Shares for details.
You have several options for accessing shares on your LaCie NAS.
Use LaCie Network Assistant for quick access to public shares. See Quick Access for details.
Use LaCie Network Assistant to enter your username and password. See Authenticate Private Shares for details.
Use your operating system to open your LaCie NAS's shares.
