    The storage link can backup automatically from disk 1 to disk to disk 2. The manual does not explain how to recover files. I would like to test this backup function. Is there any info about this of does anyone have experience with this function? :?:

    The shares 'disk 1' and 'disk 2' are related to the usb port, not to the disk.
    So I assume, in case of a defective HD1 you only need to plug to HD2 into the USB1 port. Give it a try.

    i tried yout suggestion. Did the following:
    * Shut down
    * Reconnect with backup drive 2 attached to the disk 1 port
    * Restart
    * Tried to open my normal netwerk shares from Win XP... and they just worked!

    2 things were strange though:
    * although i filled in a email address, there is no e-mail sent about a missing drive
    * When i try to browse the disk (/advanced/shares button browse, i CAN'T log in with the normal administration name and password. How come???

    I have not yet tried what happens if i just unplug drive 1. Will test that later.

    Now, I also tried what happens when you disable disk 1 (remove power), and start the NSLU up. All my shares that were backupped to disk 2 were available! No problems here.

    After such an event, howeverer, the automatic backup function is disabled and should be set again.
