How can Windows computer users access TNAS shared folders?

Post by TMSupport » 15 May 2020, 12:13

There are some ways of Windows computer users to access TNAS shared folders:


Method 1: Access through TNAS desktop application. Click File Manager and input user’s name and password to access TNAS shard folders. Users can choose to log in either as admin or other users.


Method 2: Access through IP address. Double click My Computer on computer desktop, and directly input the IP address of TNAS such as \\192.168.1.100 in the address bar, then input user’s name and password to access TNAS shared folders. Query of the IP address of TNAS is available through TNAS applicatione.


Method 3: Access by creating a shortcut. For the purpose of easy access, users can create a shortcut for the TNAS shared folders. Operation method: Users can right click the blank space on desktop and select Create> Shortcut, and then input the IP address of TNAS such as \\192.168.1.100 in the pop-up menu to finish shortcut creation. Later, users can access TNAS shared folders by double clicking the shortcut and inputting user’s name and password.

Hello.
I have my wife listed as an admin. Today I tried to go on her computer and map the hard drive for her to have access to (using TNACPC), but when I login it only allows her to view the one particular folder I made for her, rather than the whole hard drive with the original admin folder. I have her set with all permissions and as an admin, but even the files in her folder are empty, whilst they are showing on my computer. I'm not sure what else to do. Please advise.

Hi! Please go to control panel -> shared folder, click “edit” to set read and write permissions for the administrator group.

Yes, I did that. Multiple times. I'll try again. Should I click on the box for subdirectories as well?

Which folder is mapped can only see that folder. If you want to access all folders, please access via SMB service.

Actually, I do not really understand what you plan to do. If you set your wife's account as an admin, she can change all permissions anytime. Please provide more specifics then we can advise.
