  2. Go to the 'NAS Restore' tab.
  3. Choose ‘NAS’ as the share type.


     
  4. Select the required share and recovery point.
  5. By default, user authentication is disabled. Meaning, the share will be accessible to everyone on the network. To create a secure share,
    • Select 'Yes' and enable user authentication.
    • Select the username from the 'Mount Username' drop-down menu.
    • Enter the mount password.
