Drag-and-drop file operations on the web
The File Manager brings conventional file operations performed on the computer desktop all to the web browser. Users can upload, download, and manage files anywhere with a web browser. File extraction, folder creation, and smart search for files and folder are supported and functioned over the Internet.
This management platform makes file management on the Turbo NAS much easier, saving more time to increase productivity. It is more than just a disk on the local network. As long as getting on the Internet, using the Internet browser, users can manage the Turbo NAS files anywhere and anytime.
Access right control
The File Manager also facilitates centralized management of documents. Advanced folder permissions access rights of users and user groups can be configured easily, enabling folder or sub folder permissions to be setup from Microsoft Windows ACL or the web-based management interface of the Turbo NAS without complicated procedure.
Securely share files with a URL
There are numerous ways to share files over the Internet. Among them a single download link is considered to be the most convenient way. The QNAP File Manager now allows the sharing of multiple files with unique URLs that can be clicked to download without requiring any user login. This eliminates complicated privilege configurations and login process. Security is ensured with SSL and password options. The Turbo NAS owner can also set an URL expiration time for the shared URLs.
Large files upload
Uploading large-sized files via a web browser used to be a nightmare. The File Manager now supports uploading large-sized files with a web browser thanks to the Java technology.
- Access remote servers as if using local drives
- Drag-and-drop files
- Edit and save files directly in the WebDAV shared folders
- 256-bit encrypted
Desktop experience on the web
WebDAV is a technology based on HTTP. By enabling the WebDAV service on selected shared folders on the Turbo NAS, users can then remotely access the server and manage files simply by drag-and-drop. Performing like using local drives, WebDAV also allows users to edit and save files directly, avoiding redundant work to download the file to local computer and then save it back after modifications.
Safe from hacking
With 256-bit AES SSL encryption, WebDAV ensures data security and data privacy, preventing data from theft or hacking. Furthermore, WebDAV provides faster transmission speed than Microsoft networking(SMB/CIFS) over VPN.
Shared Folder Aggregation:
- Centralizes shared folders of different IP’s with a single access point
- Seamlessly works with Windows AD
One place that integrates all
Thinking about efficient file sharing among multiple shared folders in different servers, PCs, or storages? The shared folder aggregation allows IT administrators to create a portal folder and aggregate multiple shared folders from different IP addresses to the portal folder. It performs like a hub to centralize the access points to a single one from different IP addresses, thus helps prevent the overwhelming work for users to identify lots of IP addresses and log in respectively.
One user account, access anywhere
Being easy to manage and share files in Windows Active Directory environment, shared folder aggregation enables Windows AD users to access all the resources from a single access point conveniently, with only one user account.
ISO Shared Folder:
- Files archiving and sharing
- Easy file sharing over the network
- Secure data protection against disc damage
Efficient ISO files archiving and sharing
While ISO images of CD and DVD discs have become common ways of recording data, many businesses are encountering more and more issues managing ISO images of CD and DVD discs. The Turbo NAS supports mounting ISO images of CD and DVD discs as network shared folders for data archiving, storage, and sharing.
This feature saves space for storing the physical discs, reduces the risk of data loss caused by disc wearing and tearing, and enhances the performance of data sharing on a business network. Networked ISO file archiving and sharing help businesses manage ISO images more efficiently, safely, and in a more organized manner.
