    Browsing photos on my NAS from Windows problems

    This really bothers me and was discovered recently. When browsing my photos on my NAS (DS918+) in Windows Explorer and doubleclicking a photo, sometimes just gives a white/blank window, just like Windows can't read the file, and it stays like that for quite a while.

    Mapping NAS in Windows

    Is there a clever way of mapping *all* Diskstation-folders with one network-mapping in Windows? Right now I have to map each shared folder as one volume which annoys me slightly. Typing "\\diskstation" in Explorer I guess work but I want a faster way.

    Question Access Delay from Windows

    Hi, I have a DS111, DS211j, DS416, DS415Play and a DS918+ running. Forgetting the DS111 & DS211j which struggle with DSM6.x generally and are rather clunky due to their age, the others are all quick to load up and use when logging into DSM. However when accessing files from a windows machine...
