  4. Enter a folder name and a user ID. The folder name may contain up to 27 alphanumeric characters, hyphens (-), and underscores (_). Do not use spaces in the name or a symbol as the first character. The sample screenshot displays default settings for Attribute, Recycle Bin, and LAN Protocol Support. Additional supported protocols can be added now or at a later time. Once all fields are set, click OK.
NOTE: By default the SMB and AFP protocols are enabled on new folders. SMB shares are typically used by Windows clients while AFP shares are typically used by Mac OS clients. The rest of the protocols available in the list relate to internal TeraStation functions except for NFS. NFS shares are typically used by Linux/Unix based clients.
