The Status tab (Figure 14) has only one page that shows you a snapshot status of the 323. Note that this page includes the internal temperature of the NAS device. (System temperature exceeding a user-settable limit can trigger an email alert.)

Figure 14: Status Page

Virtually every NAS manufacturer feels obligated to include backup software and D-Link choose to include Memeo's AutoBackup software (Figure 15). This application lets you define backup jobs, but I found that you don't have much control over when the job runs. So, for example, you can't schedule when your initial backup job is going to run.

Figure 15: Memeo AutoBackup

When the backup job runs, Memeo creates a mirror image of your source directory tree on your destination drive and then backs up the files. But examining the destination directory, I discovered that all of the files that were backed up had creation dates equal to the backup time instead of the original files' timstamps. I also found a 1K file with the same name but with a .dcm extension for each backup file!

This file is in xml format and contains the original file creation data and file modification dates. While this might enable the Memeo restore software to restore files with the original date stamps, you can't date index files on your archive. And, the 25,000 files in my images directory grew to 50,000 files because of the individual .dcm files.

While Memeo AutoBackup does what its name implies, I think I would prefer a backup utility that doesn't litter my backup with thousands of individual files and one that doesn't change the file created/modified dates.
