Depends on the filesystem of the NAS unit. If it's proprietary or a *nix based filesystem, you're out of luck..you'll need to look up specific utilities from the vendor.

If it's NTFS formatted, then you can use a defrag utility that works on Windows. A good automatic defragmenter that is fast and efficient would do the trick..you won't have to actively manage the defrag, yet it'll get done properly in the background.

Unable to download the Seagate Central NAS 1D driver on my Windows Vista desktop....help?


I think you mean hard drive. NAS devices aren't meant to be plugged into computers. They're meant for networks. NAS means "Network Attached Storage". There should be a disc that comes along with it to set it up. If you don't have one, you can connect to it through a web browser to set it up, thats usually how its done. If you look at the devices in your network, you should find its name, and then you can type in its name in a browser. As an example, if its name is seagate-nas, then you type "seagate-nas\" (without the quotes, and with the '\') into your browser and it should come up

Tip

Access to the NAS-T2 from Linux


Quick tip: when accessing the NAS-T2 from Linux, mount any NAS-T2 shares using smbfs, not cifs.

More detail: This tip presumes you're familiar with mounting filesystems in Linux and are trying to mount an NAS-T2 share in Linux. The older smbfs filesystem type for mounting Windows shares is deprecated in favor of the newer cifs filesystem type. However, the NAS-T2 is built on some older flavor of Windows and behaves very oddly when mounted as a cifs filesystem. Changing back to the older smbfs filesystem type solved all my problems.

Can both USB 3 and FW800 used at the same time with two computers?


The fast answer is no. This miniStack is not a network-attached storage (NAS) device.
However some of the newer Wi-Fi routers that also offer excellent network storage (NAS) features when coupled with an external hard drive.
Additionally depending on your operating system, you can have a local area network (LAN) with your main computer (hub), with the miniStack attached to it, and have the second computer access the HDD through an older (non-NAS) router. The second computer access would slower than the HUB.

Stand-alone networking


What you want is called a NAS, Networked Attached Storage, which is generally a relatively small device with its own hard drives, a network connection, and a dedicated computer to perform file serving tasks and network communications. Unfortunately, your FreeAgent is only a hard drive, with no file server or network connection, so it must be attached directly to a computer through its USB connection if it is a FreeAgent 500GB, or through its USB, firewire, or eSata connection if it is a FreeAgent Pro 500GB.

There are some NAS's which have USB ports, and if you were to purchase one (not cheap), you could connect your FreeAgent to it as additional storage.

Although probably an unsatisfactory answer, I hope this helps you plan your next step.
