QNAP’s QTS operating system shines in many areas, but there’s one feature that stands out as a glaring omission- there’s no easy way to automatically delete files by scheduling automated clean-up tasks. Since I use my QNAP NAS as a backup server, I do a lot of automatic transfers from my home server to my NAS. While this works great, after a while the video footage from my camera system fills up the storage space.
It’s a pain to constantly stay aware of the storage space remaining on my NAS. Sometimes I catch the red LED on the front panel of the NAS, sometimes I don’t find out until I log in through the web interface. I needed a more reliable way to stay on top of this since my life is a bit hectic at the moment.
