Gone are the days of complicated setups configurations, remembering passwords, using installation keys and being lead through a setup wizard like you’re a child. SmartStor Zero is about “easy access”, backing up your valuable data and streaming digital content in your home within “minutes” of opening the box. SmartStor Zero is available in 2TB Capacities.

ON will automatically open the Network Share on your desktop every time you power-on your computer in addition to creating a desktop alias in Mac OS X and making the Network Share available under My Computer in Windows.
