 +====== Access and Transfer Files ======
 +
 +===== About Default Shares =====
 +
 +++++ d2/2big Default Shares |
 +Your d2 or 2big Network 2 has three shares (similar to folders) by default: **Share**, **Public**, and **USBShare** (USBShare will be created automatically when you allocate space for USB access; see [[dashboard#​dashboard-drive-information|Dashboard - Drive Information]] for details).
 +
 +The following table sums up the differences between them: 
 +
 +^ Name ^ Accessibility ^ Login ^ Availability ^
 +| Share | Private, accessible only to admin by default | Password-protected | When connected to the network (Ethernet) and to networked computers |
 +| Public | Public, accessible to any user on the network | None | When connected to the network (Ethernet) and to networked computers or UPnP/​DLNA-certified players/​adapters (if multimedia service is activated) |
 +| USBShare | Public (access to connected external USB hard drive) | None | When connected to the network (Ethernet) or to a computer (USB), and through UPnP/​DLNA-certified players/​adapters (if multimedia service is activated) |
 +
 +Thus, when the d2 or 2big Network 2 is connected to the network, all three shares are accessible to the administrator,​ and Public and USBShare to guests (USBShare will only be available if you have allocated space to USB access). On the other hand, when it is connected to a computer via USB, only USBShare will be accessible. ​

 +
 +++++ 5big Default Shares |
 +Your LaCie 5big Network 2 has three shares (similar to folders) by default: **Share**, **Public**, and **iSCSIShare** (iSCSIShare will be created automatically when you allocate space for the iSCSI share; see [[dashboard#​dashboard-drive-information|Dashboard - Drive Information]] for details).
 +
 +The following table sums up the differences between them: 
 +
 +^ Name ^ Accessibility ^ Login ^ Availability ^
 +| Share | Private, accessible only to admin by default | Password-protected | When connected to the network (Ethernet) and to networked computers |
 +| Public | Public, accessible to any user on the network | None | When connected to the network (Ethernet) and to networked computers or UPnP/​DLNA-certified players/​adapters (if multimedia service is activated) |
 +| iSCSIShare | Public, accessible to any user on the network | None | When connected to the network (Ethernet) and to networked computers or UPnP/​DLNA-certified players/​adapters (if multimedia service is activated) |

 +Thus, when the 5big Network 2 is connected to the network, all three shares are accessible to the administrator,​ and Public and iSCSIShare to guests (iSCSIShare will only be available if you have allocated space to iSCSI access). ​
 +++++
 +
 +It is also possible to create new shares and/or to delete the default shares (except USBShare or iSCSIShare). See [[dashboard#​dashboard-drive-information|Dashboard - Drive Information]] for details.
