File System

This page is a representation of the relationship between the Cloud, the Pool, the Shares and how the Users access the shares on the device.

In the File System View, you can customize your storage configuration as desired. You can add Pools, Shares and assign Share Permissions to Users.

You should see the default cloud group called "Morro Cloud", the GlobalPool1 and the GlobalShare1, if your plan is CloudNAS Business or Enterprise.

A Storage Pool is an abstract concept with a collection of shares with a set of properties. The properties of a pool consist of its name and the version control for that Pool. You can only delete a Pool when all Shares associated with the pools is removed.

Share, or network folder, offers an easy way to share files with others who would like to collaborate with you on the same files together. When you create a Share, and allow other people to access it, the shared files will appear in their Share. You can create a restricted share or just a common Share where other users may take or put files in the Share. Once it is in the Share, the files will replicate in all Shares regardless of the device location. For example, if you have multiple devices, they can be independent of geographic location.

Every Share have a mount point. The mount point is similar to a network folder. And you access the Share in the same way you do with a network folder.
