[Idea]- Web Interface for Removing Drives from NAS

Post by chainer » May 4th, 2009, 3:29 pm

I have a Windows Based NAS, where I connect my external harddrives. I read with the new global autorun feature you could run applications/commands. So I thought if I connect my external harddrive i could autorun the netshare command, and share the drive automatically across the whole network. But I cannot remove the harddrive safely until I connect to the NAS over RDP. Would it be possible to create a little webinterface for USB Safely Remove where you can remove the drives which are connected to the computer. This way it would be perfect for me :wink:

Hello Chainer,

That's an interesting idea, and we will consider adding it in future (but not soon). However now you can implement it by yourself if you have a small knowledge one of web-languages (e.g. PHP). USB Safely Remove have a command line, so it is possible to use it and write some simple scripts that displays all the current devices and lets you stop one of them.
