Yes you can but external disks are primarily meant to be used as backup destinations, not as shared resources so there will be severe limitations.Peter.Hahn wrote:1) Can I connect external USB and eSATA drives to the NAS and share their content on the network?
USB-hubs may work (the thought to try never even crossed my mind) but I would be extremely surprised if there was any support for it. Generally I find hubs a bad idea with storage devices.2) How many external drives can I connect to the TS-419P II via USB (via a HUB?) and / or eSATA?
Yes. In fact one of each would be my recommendation if you intend to use them as shared disks, to avoid the previously mentioned problem where multiple external disks of the same type (USB or eSATA) may change share names.3) Can I connect USB and eSATA drives at the same time to share their content on the LAN?
Up to 3 USB printers are supported. See answer above about the number of disks and when both types are used.4) Can I connect USB dirves and USB printers at the same time (via HUB)? Does this have influence on the number of drives / printers?
From Qnap. Historically not every Twonky-release have been brought forward by Qnap.5) How will I get updates for the Twonky Media server? From Element5, from QNAP, from the community?

Due to the dynamic of the plug an play system, the drive naming for external devices can (and will) vary depending on boot sequence, connection sequence, ...
You map to the share names that are automatically created on connection (USBDisk1, eSATADisk1, eSATADisk2) and that are visible in the background in your screenshot.marcoshcn wrote:I want to see them just like my NAS is. Like a MAPED network drive.
How can I setup this?
