Transferring Data

Postby Grauniadangel » Wed Nov 21, 2012 7:38 pm

Hi

Invariably when someone buys a new NAS they are either upgrading or they are first time users but they still need to transfer data to the NAS.

My experience was upgrading and I used the windows explorer facility to do this. I would have used your file explorer and upload facility but this only allowed individual files to be opened and uploaded.

What would you consider to be best practice for this initial procedure?

Thanks

Hi Grauniadangel,

In my personal opinion, the most intuitive way to transfer data to NAS that is map a network drive

Our ASUSTOR college can show you how to do this

http://www.asustor.com/online/College

you can find there are two courses which will show you how to map the network drive in Windows or Mac

here is the course download link

For Windows

For Mac

Hi GA,

If you would like to upgrade your NAS (let's say "X") to an ASUSTOR NAS, and transfer the data from X to the ASUSTOR NAS, I would suggest using the built-in backup feature of ADM. Here are the steps:

1. Enable FTP server function on X. Most NAS devices should support this feature.
2. Login to ADM, go to [Backup & Restore] > [FTP Backup]
3. Create a new backup job and choose [FTP Server -> Your NAS]. This enables the "pull backup" which can pull the data from X to the ASUSTOR NAS.

Hope this helps.

Oh and, I will move this topic to http://forum.asustor.com/viewforum.php?f=29 since it's more appropriated.
