In addition, the TS-420U can also be configured as an LDAP server and allows devices with LDAP protocol enabled to be joined in the directory and share the same user accounts and groups.
Shared Folder Aggregation

ISO File Archiving and Sharing

This feature saves the space for storing the physical discs, reduces the risk of data loss caused by disc wearing and tearing, and enhances the efficiency of data sharing on business network.
Advanced Folder Permissions
Advanced folder permissions allow users to configure folder/subfolder access to the TS-420U. With this feature enabled, users can manage the folder permissions from Microsoft Windows or the web-based management interface of the TS-420U easily.
