In most instances, the administrator performs all management tasks for the LaCie CloudBox. See the table below for the access rights available to the administrator and users.
|Create/Revise/Delete Users||Eco Management Settings||General Settings||Backup Jobs||Download Jobs (Torrents)||Drive Information (Format Disk)||Support|
|Administrator||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes; Family and personal folders only. The administrator cannot back up other users' folders.||Yes. The administrator must turn this option on||Yes||Yes|
|User||No||No||No||Yes; Family and personal folders only.||Yes. The administrator must turn the option on.||No||No|
By creating a new user, the administrator will add a personal folder to the LaCie CloudBox. As opposed to the Family folder, personal folders can offer private access, requiring a username and password. Whenever a user accesses his personal folder on a PC or Mac in the home, he will be prompted for the username and password assigned by the administrator.
To create a new user, click the ADD USER button, then fill out the required fields. Click the green check mark to add the user or the x to cancel.
User data is organized in a table:
To delete a user, click the grey X on the far right of the user's row. A pop-up window will ask for confirmation. By clicking APPLY, you will delete the user's share and all of his data.
The Family folder is a Public Share since it is available to everyone who uses the LaCie CloudBox in the home.
A user can change the password assigned by administrator.
