What is Distributed File System (DFS)?
DFS stands for Distributed File System, a way to share multiple share folders for one location.
The share folders can be located on the same TeraStation, another TeraStation, or even a computer.
This can be very useful for administration and it makes several folders appear as part of a single folder.
There are two ways DFS can be setup, with DFS routing and without:
- When using DFS routing, only one share folder can be mapped from a different location.
But, it does not appear as a subfolder of the DFS share folder.
- When DFS routing is not being used, up to 8 other share folders can be linked to the TeraStation.
The multiple share folders appear as sub-folder of the main DFS share folder.
