ext3
« on: April 11, 2011, 10:26:47 AM »

Hi all, does anyone know where in the configuration page do you choose which formatting for the hardrives?  I was suggested to use ext3, but I don't know what I originally chose.  so I want to go in and see which is being used.  I can't find it.

There isn't any way to see what the file system type is from the web interface.
If you have setup something like ffp so that you can log in, then you can see the type with just running "mount" command.

How long have you had the unit and what firmware version was on there when you formatted the drives? EXT3 has only been available in the last couple FW releases as I recall.

FFP is pretty simple and offers benefits that may be appropriate to you. Copying 2 files to the NAS is pretty simple :)

Depends if telnet is enabled in your OS.... try it and see.  Open a cmd prompt and type "telnet".  If you get a telnet prompt then you are good to go, if not you will either need to enable telnet or use a program such as Putty (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/)
