Note:

Ensure that folder aggregation is enabled before performing the following steps. For details, see Folder Aggregation.

  1. Go to Control Panel > Privilege > Shared Folders > Folder Aggregation.
  2. Under Folder Aggregation List, click Create a Portal Folder.

    The Create a Portal Folder window appears.

  3. Specify the following information.

    Field

    Description

    Folder Name

    Specify a folder name that contains 1 to 64 characters and that does not:

    • Begin or end with a space

    • Contain consecutive spaces

    • End with "."

    • Begin with "_sn_" or "_sn_bk"

    • Contain the following characters: " + = / \ : | * ? < > ; [ ] % ` '

    Hidden Folder

    Selecting Yes hides the folder in Windows networks. Users who know the specific path can still access the folder.

    Comment

    Specify a comment between 1 and 128 ASCII characters.

    Users must login before accessing the portal folder.

    When selected, users must log in to the NAS with their username and password before accessing the portal folder.

    This prevents guest accounts from accessing the portal folder and other user permission issues.
