Connect your NAS to a flash drive or a hard drive in seconds

Thecus Logo09/23/2010- Setting up backup connections over Ethernet can be very useful, but they can also take time. When you're on the go or short on time, the easiest way to get the data you need where you need it is with a USB or eSATA connection. It also gives you the option of connecting larger external hard drives to your NAS to serve as permanent backups with the same convenience. With the USB/eSATA Backup Module, backup is easier than you can imagine!

USB is the most widespread computing connection and has become the standard of almost all communication between computers and external hardware devices. You know this if you've ever used a digital camera, an MP3 player, or even a mouse! eSATA, though not as widespread as USB, has vastly superior speed for larger data transfers. What's more, you can set your USB or eSATA connected devices to automatically backup selected folders from your NAS every day, week, or month. With these choices, you can go for on-the-go convenience of a USB connection or the speed of an eSATA connection, and because most Thecus NAS have both, you can do both at the same time! Keep your large external hard drive connected 24/7 through eSATA, get your files updated on your smaller portable hard drive, all while plugging in your flash drive to quickly automatically update a few files on your way out the door!
