Your LaCie NAS's storage is divided into shares, also known as network folders. This page allows you to create new shares, assign access rights to users and groups, and to adjust share protocols. By default, your LaCie NAS has two shares, admin and Public. You can begin working with these shares immediately or create new shares.
