Instructions for Using FRITZ!NAS
When using FRITZ!NAS, please note the following:
- Depending on the functions available in your web browser, you may be able to copy multiple files to the FRITZ!Box at the same time. A current web browser is required for this function, one that supports the HTML5 web standard.
- Depending on the functions available in your web browser, you may be able to upload entire folders to the FRITZ!Box. Currently this function is supported only by the Google Chrome browser.
- Use the "Remove Safely" option to remove a USB storage device from the FRITZ!Box. To do this, open the "Overview" page and click "remove" in the "Interfaces / USB" area. The USB storage device will be removed safely to avoid any loss of data.
- The FRITZ!Box restarts every time the internal memory is switched on or off.
With every restart the internal memory of the FRITZ!Box is deleted, and the files saved on the internal memory will be irrevocably lost.
