Key Firmware Updates for All TS3010 and TS5010 Series:

Duplex Firmware

Duplex Firmware is an advanced recovery feature that makes TeraStations more secure from data corruption and data loss. Duplex Firmware creates more stabilized network storage performance and directly results in less system downtime without having to wait for an engineer to recover data.

Quickly restore the OS with the assistance of the Duplex Firmware feature without compromising data.

Now with Duplex Firmware, if you experience minor OS system issues, the TeraStation will then either begin the recovery process itself or allow for a recovery without affecting user data.

Advanced NTFS Permissions (Windows ACL)

File permissions can now be controlled at the subfolder file level from Windows Explorer, making it possible to create new shares with unique permissions on demand from active directory.

  • Assign permissions to all levels of the shared directory structure
  • Manage all permissions from your domain account
  • Copy and Paste existing permission structures

Rapid RAID Mode Change

Rapid RAID Mode Change allows for greatly improved RAID rebuild times. In the event of drive failure this new feature allows recovery as quickly as possible.
