Congratulations on your purchase of Seagate Business Storage featuring Seagate NAS OS. Designed to satisfy the data sharing and backup needs of small, medium, and branch offices, Seagate NAS OS is an intuitive interface accessible to a wide range of administrators. Additionally, NAS OS offers a rich set of collaborative and data protection tools to help manage your content.
The default Home Page in NAS OS 4.2 has been replaced by the App Button, located in the top left corner of the screen and available at all times while browsing the NAS OS Webboard.
When logging into your NAS OS device, it will now default to the Filebrowser for immediate access to your files. The App Button can then be used to access all the apps you use (such as the Device Manager and Backup Manager) with just a few easy clicks.
The Filebrowser itself has been substantially updated to include drag and drop folder uploads, added Advanced Settings for a more personalized experience, and other improvements to functionality and performance.

The Seagate Access service is available to access your device using Sdrive, and this service’s functionality has been enhanced to include a Web Manager that can be accessed both locally and remotely. The Web Manager lists any NAS OS device added to your new or existing Seagate Access account, giving you easy access using any web browser with Internet access using the following web link:
