I am running OSX Lion (10.7.5) and it is important to note that the Set Up Wizard that comes on the CD is flawed. DO NOT USE IT! Once you get the DNS-320L plugged in to your network, go to it via the Web interface. There is a set up wizard in the Web GUI that will help with the basic setup, and then you can go Management-Disk Management and set up your Hard Drive Configuration (which will format the drive(s)), then go over to Applications-Local Backups-Time Machine where you can enable Time Machine (which starts the AFP service) and then add individual shares under Settings for each machine you want to back up. I also recommend creating a user for the back up connections because if you try to connect to the NAS with the admin password, Time Machine will ask you to change it. Not the case with a mere user.
The problem with the Set Up Wizard failure is that it apparently is the only way you can set up an account with mydlink.com, which is how you can connect to the NAS from your smart phone or tablet (iPhone and iPad in my case). My desire to do this led to a great deal of aggravation because when it fails, it corrupts your password and configuration, and I had to reformat the drive (losing backups that took a long time to do, about 3.25 hrs. for 156 gigs).Read more ›
Amazon got me the device rather quickly, as expected. I opened the box to find the quality of the product about what I had expected for the price, nothing heavy duty but looked good for home use. I wanted a RAID 1 configuration and D-Link never specified if hard drives needed to be the same or not so to be safe I wanted to get 2 of the same hard drive types. I had ordered a single drive at the same time, it shipped separetley so there was no more I could do until my first drive came.
Finally got my drive, installed it into the DNS-320L, I run the wizard that came on the DVD and it does not see the device. I go to D-Link support site and was shocked to find support only consisted of a handful of FAQs and an email option. The FAQs where useless so I fired off an email while there.
I read some more of the manual and learned some other stuff so I looked on my router and see the 320L has obtained a DHCP lease, I was able to go directly to the 320L web interface and set it up manually. D-Link does not give any direction on what you need to do for manual intial config but I finally got the NAS up and running but noted some security errors in the log. I found the web interface to be odd especially dialogs that confirm things. I went ahead and ordered my second drive at this point.
A couple days later I get a reply from D-Link that just says to download the install wizard from the web site. The downloaded version worked, that would have been a nice FAQ to have.Read more ›
So, I started searching around for an additional unit. There is one other reliable supplier that has this at the same price. However, I prefer Amazon. Let me warn you, if you want to find this unit from Amazon ($99.99 on Prime), you have to use the following search . . . "D-Link ShareCenter Cloud Storage 2000 2-Bay (Diskless) Network Attached Storage (DNS-320L)". If you search any other way, all you will find are used units for the same or more money.
Since I had two new Seagate Barracuda 4tb drives I decided I would get the ShareCenter from Amazon and add that mix to my system. When I installed my current units, I had to download a patch from D-Link so that Windows could recognize a 3tb drive. I also had to use the Disk Manager to format and configure the drives. So, after I installed the 4tb drives in this unit, I was very pleased that the D-Link Installation app was easy to use, formatted the drives and installed them in windows in a matter of minutes.
For the price, I do not believe you can beat this ShareCenter. If you want more than a two drive setup, the price of the bay units escalates very fast. If you want a four drive system, using two of these is less expensive than most four bay units. Also, I feel that it gives you more flexibility and security. If all your drives are in one unit and it goes down, what do you do?Read more ›

Was trying to set this up with Proxmox VM to use the NFS it worked but with no security. I did not do enough research on Proxmox NFS. Other than that it is a good device.Published 9 months ago by Amore Hayles

Impossible to setup. Fully destroyed two hard drives leaving them unrecognizable by my computers. They cannot even be reformatted. Buy anything else except this garbage.Published 10 months ago by Antonio Mei
