Thecus N8800 Backup to USB

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We have a Thecus N8800 NAS and would like to see if it is possible to backup folders directly from the N8800 to an external USB drive attached to the N8800. I know you can drag data from the NAS to the external USB drive connected to another computer, but this is extremely slow when you are talking about 1TB or more. Surely it must be possible to copy directly within the unit either via the web interface or another program or command. I have installed the USBCopy module from their website (per their tech support suggestion), but that hasn't helped. The firmware version I have on this NAS is 2.01.09.
