I expect the intention was, that storage be automatically added
to the Home Base, as soon as a drive is connected. Access
would be shared in NAS mode, so multiple computers could be
writing at the same time.
The box apparently also has some kind of exclusive access option,
where the connected device is connected to one computer,
on demand from that computer. I'm guessing that would be the
"non-NAS option". Maybe that can also be done to drives.
I didn't really read the manual - I was more interested in
how many setup dialog box options there were, and whether
any of them could get flipped by accident. I figured toggling
a box like that, is worth a quick check, no matter how the
box actually works.
