Ts 251+ is my model...
I just did it today. :lol:
The beauty of Linux is that everything is a file in the file system. My USB HDD was connected as "/share/external/DEV3304_1". What I did in SSH was:
1) Format the external USB HDD in format Ext4 via Web GUI
2) mkdir /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/ext_drive
3) mkdir /share/external/DEV3304_1/qvr
4) mount /share/external/DEV3304_1/qvr /share/CACHEDEV1/ext_drive
5) Use the Web GUI to create a Share, say "USBhdd" and use manual path "/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/ext_drive"
6) The USBhdd is selectable in the Surveillance Station advance setting screen and recording is now done in external USB. :lol:

4) mount /share/external/DEV3304_1/qvr /share/CACHEDEV1/ext_drive
Isn't that transient / won't it disappear at the next reboot?
TS-431+ as primary storage and media server and a bunch of IP cams under Surveillance Station.
