Qnap TS-212P user's folder

Post by Salvini65 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 6:25 am

Hi, it's my first post so I introduce myself and then ask something :)
I have a TS-212P , bought two years ago and until now I never encountered problems.
I was updating to the latest firmware version, but a message error notified me there wasn't enough space left to download the file.
I used ssh to connect the nas and find something that could be erased to free up some space, but I saw in the /mnt/HDA_ROOT/.config/.qos_config/users a lot of folders with usernames that I've never created.
I'd like to know how the folders are created inside that path:
Every time you login with a new user the folder is created?

the folder will be full of usernames that have a QTS desktop profile. ie they have logged into the webgui of the NAS.

the profile is basically a file with the users own personal settings (layouts etc) of the webgui.

Ok so if I found a lot of usernames that I've never created I must assume someone found a way to enter the nas.

Check in the admin web interface if these users exist. If so, delete them. Also change your admin password if you didn't create those users yourself.
