Note: This function may differ depending on the NAS model in use.

MyArchive is a function designed especially for data management and sharing, giving you added flexibility when using multiple hard drives for data backup or exchange. When MyArchive hard drives have been inserted into the MyArchive drive bay, you will immediately be able to access the data on the hard drive.

  • MyArchive Hard Drive: Users will need to first convert hard drives into MyArchive hard drives before being able to use the MyArchive function.
  • File System: Supported file systems are as follows:
    • EXT4: for use with Linux
    • Btrfs: for use with Linux
    • NTFS: for use with Windows
    • HFS+: for use with macOS
    • exFAT: for use with Windows, macOS and Linux

    The exFAT license is required if using ADM 3.5 and previous version.

  • Alias name: Here you can define tags for MyArchive drives. This allows users to quickly determine the contents of MyArchive drives from within ADM File Explorer when multiple drives are mounted simultaneously.
  • MyArchive Encryption: Here you can choose whether or not you want to encrypt this MyArchive and whether or not you want to auto-mount it at system startup. Should you choose to encrypt this MyArchive, after the system restarts, you will have to manually enter the password for the MyArchive in order to access it. Encrypted MyArchives are normally used for the storage of critical or confidential data. Should you lose your NAS you still needn't worry about your data leaking out and falling into the wrong hands.

The MyArchive encryption function only supports the EXT4 and Btrfs file systems.

  • Binding: You can decrypt encrypted MyArchive hard drives by entering a password, importing an electronic encryption key, or by inserting a USB device with a decryption key into your NAS. To bind a USB device with an encrypted MyArchive hard drive, please ensure that there is an EXT4 or Btrfs MyArchive hard drive is mounted, and then insert a USB device into the USB port located on the front of the NAS.

Note: After binding the USB device to a MyArchive hard drive, please eject MyArchive hard drive and the USB device. Insert the USB device into any one of the vacant USB ports on the NAS and the encrypted MyArchive hard drive will automatically mount. Removing the USB device from the NAS will unmount the encrypted MyArchive hard drive automatically.
