SaFeLy Share dIgItaL FILeS LoCaLLy and oVer the Internet
the ShareCenter™ Shadow 2-Bay network Storage, when used with internal Sata drives*, enables users to share documents, files, and digital media such
as music, photos, and videos with other users on a home or office network. Users can gain remote access to their files over the Internet using the built-in
web/file server or the secure FtP server. keep data safe by giving rights to specific users or groups and assign them to folders with specific read/write
permissions. this is ideal for an office environment with sensitive employee-specific data, or for the home, where children’s access can be restricted to only
age-appropriate materials. the ShareCenter Shadow also supports time Machine which allows apple® users to easily back up any Mac computers running
oS X (10.5 or later).
StreaM dIgItaL MedIa Content wIth the BUILt-In dLna-CertIFIed MedIa SerVer
Back up your digital media files to the ShareCenter Shadow for safekeeping, and enjoy the benefits of the built-in UPnP aV media server. Stream digital content
to compatible media players such as the d-Link Boxee Box, PlayStation® 3, Microsoft® Xbox 360™, and d-link MediaLounge product line.2

Powerful add-on applications extend naS functionality and allow you to do more with your naS. P2P applications offer access to a limitless collection of free
content. Meanwhile, SqueezeCenter, audio Streamer, and ajaXplorer can be used to stream a music collection stored on the naS across the internet. the
powerful gallery and Blog add-ons let you showcase your own photos or writing. enjoy even more add-ons as they become available in the future.
ConneCt USB PrInterS, Storage deVICeS, and UPS MonItorS
Share a USB printer or scanner within the network by connecting it to the USB 2.0 drive. you may also plug in an external hard drive or flash storage device
and share it with the entire network. a convenient USB button allows you to instantly copy the data on USB flash storage device to the naS. additionally, the
ShareCenter supports UPS monitoring via USB to help maintain data integrity during a power failure.
enjoy PerForManCe, ProteCtIon, and FLeXIBILIty
the availability of four different hard drive modes (Standard, jBod, raId 0, raId 1) allows users to choose the configuration best suited to their needs.
Standard mode creates two separately accessible hard drives. jBod combines both drives to create a single, easy to use volume. raId 0 combines both
drives in a “striped” configuration, which provides the highest performance when using a gigabit ethernet connection. raId 1 creates a copy of your data on
both drives, providing maximum protection; if one drive fails while configured as raId 1, the unaffected drive continues to function as a single drive until the
failed drive is replaced. the new drive will then be re-mirrored, allowing the ShareCenter Shadow to return to its full level of protection.
*Sata drives are not included with the ShareCenter Shadow and must be purchased separately.

1 hard drives not included. raId 1 mirroring requires the use of two internal sata drives. to avoid data incompatibility in raId 1 operation, use Sata drives from the same
manufacturer. Formatted drive capacity for raId 1 operation is dependant on the drive capacity of the lowest-sized drive. May not work with older generation Sata drives.
For a list of Sata drives that have been tested to work with the ShareCenter Shadow, visit d-Link support websites.
2 d-Link cannot guarantee full compatibility or proper playback with all codecs. Playback capability depends on the codec support of the UPnP aV media player.
3 Maximum hdd capacity supported may increase in future depending on advances in Sata technology.
