Installation

First, unlock the drive bays by pulling on the release lever and slide the drive trays out of the NAS.  Second, use the mounting screws provided to install two hard drives to the trays; here, I used two Western Digital Red 3TB drives.  Third, slide the drive trays back into the drive bays and lock down the release levers.  Lastly, place the NAS where you want it, attach an HDMI cable (not included) to the NAS and to your TV/receiver, and plug the unit in.  And of course power it on!

Next, we install the ASUSTOR Control Center app onto a compatible PC or Mac.  Here, I installed it on a Windows 8.1 desktop.  Insert the CD that came with your unit and you’ll see this if autorun is enabled…otherwise look for the setup application on the CD and run it.  You’ll see this:
