I am setting up a Synology DIsk Station. The backup software I use requires a local drive , I am setting up the NAS as ISCSI. I have two options to enable it; I have a file-level ISCSI and a block-level. I am wondering if I do the block level which boasts faster performance, can I still share out files/folders like I normally would with normal permissions or does setting it up as an ISCSI change how file sharing works on the device? ie: I want the drive connected to 1 computer for backup purposes via ISCSI but I still want to be able to share folders on the NAS to users that connect via smb normally, is this possible?
