source of heat or exposing it to sunlight (even through a window).
Inversely, placing your LaCie Network Space MAX in an environment that is too cold or humid may damage the unit. Because of heat issues, LaCie
recommends that users do not stack multiple Network Space MAX together. Always unplug the LaCie Network Space MAX from the electrical outlet if there is
a risk of lightning or if it will be unused for an extended period of time. Otherwise, there is an increased risk of electrical shock, short-circuiting or fire. Use
only the power supply shipped with the device. Do not use the LaCie Network Space MAX near other electrical appliances such as televisions or radios.
Doing so may cause interference which will adversely affect the operation of the other products. Do not place the LaCie Network Space MAX near sources of
magnetic interference, such as computer displays, televisions or speakers. Magnetic interference can affect the operation and stability of your LaCie Network
Space MAX. Do not place heavy objects on top of the LaCie Network Space MAX.
Never use excessive force on your LaCie Network Space MAX. If you detect a problem, see the Troubleshooting section in this manual. IMPORTANT INFO:
Any loss, corruption or destruction of data while using a LaCie drive is the sole responsibility of the user, and under no circumstances will LaCie be held
liable for the recovery or restoration of this data. To help prevent the loss of your data, LaCie highly recommends that you keep TWO copies of your data; one
copy on your external hard disk, for instance, and a second copy either on your internal hard disk, another external hard disk or some other form of
removable storage media. LaCie offers a complete line of CD and DVD drives.
If you would like more information on backup, please refer to our website. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. 1TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. Once formatted, the
actual available storage capacity varies depending on operating environment (typically 10% less). Some enhancements brought to the product during its
lifetime may cause discrepancies between the information and screenshots in the manual and the actual user experience.
Health and Safety Precautions Only qualified persons are authorized to carry out maintenance on this device. Read this User Manual carefully and follow the
correct procedure when setting up the device. Never insert any metallic object into the drive to avoid any risk of electrical shock, fire, short-circuiting or
dangerous emissions. If it appears to be malfunctioning, have it inspected by a qualified LaCie Technical Support representative. Never expose your device to
rain, or use it near water, or in damp or wet conditions. Never place objects containing liquids on the LaCie Network Space MAX, as they may spill into its
openings.

LaCie accepts no responsibility for any damage to the drive resulting from the use of an inappropriate adapter. Using an adapter other than one authorized
by LaCie will void your warranty. Fig. 04 LaCie Network Space MAX · DESIGN BY NEIL POULTON User Manual Connecting to a Network page 12 2.2.
STEP 2: Connect the Ethernet Cable 1. Connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the back of the LaCie Network Space MAX (Fig.
05). 2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable into an available Ethernet port on your router or hub (refer to your router or hub's documentation if
necessary). 3. Turn on the drive by pressing the power button on the back of the drive for two seconds (Fig.
06). The front LED will turn on and then begin blinking blue. The drive is ready to be accessed once the blue LED has stopped blinking. Please be patient
while the Network Space MAX starts for the first time. Now move on to step 3, section 2.
3. STEP 3: Connect using LaCie Network Assistant. TECHNICAL NOTE: Depending on your computer's Ethernet settings, you may be able to connect the
Network Space MAX directly to your computer using the Ethernet cable. Fig. 05 Gigabit Ethernet Cables And Connectors See Fig. 07 for an illustration of the
Ethernet cable used to connect your LaCie Network Space MAX to your network device. The ends of the Ethernet cable are the same and either end can be
connected to the LaCie Network Space MAX or your router. Fig. 06 Fig. 07 - Gigabit Ethernet cable ends (top view) LaCie Network Space MAX · DESIGN

3. STEP 3: Connect using LaCie Network Assistant LaCie highly recommends that you install LaCie Network Assistant since it provides important
information and offers easy features that will offer great help in the daily use of your LaCie network disks. For example, Lacie Network Assistant detects all
LaCie network-attached storage devices on your network and gives you easy ways to connect to or configure them. Once installed and running, LaCie
Network Assistant will appear in your task bar (Windows users, Fig. 09) or in the menu bar (Mac users, Fig. 10). To simplify the installation, it will
automatically search for storage devices on your network. When a new device is found, the icon will blink. When Network Assistant finds your LaCie Network
Space MAX, you can connect to any of its shares, log in to the Dashboard (user interface, see 4.1.

4.8.1. Standard Settings Configure using DHCP or manually: If your network is DHCP-enabled, as are most consumer networks, the Network Space MAX
will automatically be assigned an IP address and other values. As a result, most users will see that the table has been filled in with values. If you select
Configure Manually, you will be able to modify the table values. Automatic port forward: If you want your Network Space MAX to be accessible via the
internet for remote access, you need certain ports to be open in your router to allow proper communication.
Check this box to enable port forwarding, which uses UPnP-IGD/NAT-PMP to automate port forwarding (if your router is compatible). The following ports
need to be forwarded to ensure proper communication: 21 (FTP) and 80 (HTTP). IMPORTANT INFO: If you activate automatic port forward, public shares
will become accessible (read/write) through FTP. Dynamic IP Resolution: You can use a third party Dynamic DNS service to create an easy-to-remember
URL for accessing your Network Space MAX remotely (Fig. 60).
This service is free and no subscription is required. For access to a step-by-step screencast click the "i" next to the Remote Access heading to access the
screencast (Fig. 61). Fig. 59 Fig.

Information This page shows you information about disk usage and will allow you to reformat your drive. 4.9.1. Formatting Your Network Space MAX When
you click the top Format button (Fig. 63, a), ALL data on the disk (including on USBShare) will be erased and the disk will be formatted. Data on any USB
hard drive connected to the front port will not be affected. When you click the bottom Format button (Fig.
63, b), only the USBShare will be formatted. To reformat: 1. Click the FORMAT button. 2. In the blue window that opens, confirm by flicking the FORMAT
button.
CAUTION: Formatting will erase all the data on your drive (but will not remove users or settings). Make sure to back up all your data onto another volume
before proceeding. If you are formatting USBShare and wish to back it up first onto another share, LaCie recommends you use the File Browser (see 3.3.
Accessing Shares Using File Browser (Dashboard)) instead of using SMB/AFP (i.
e. using the Finder for Mac users or an Explorer window for Windows users). LaCie cannot be held for responsible for the loss of data occurring during
formatting. Fig. 63 Fig. 64 LaCie Network Space MAX · DESIGN BY NEIL POULTON User Manual Administering Your LaCie Network Space MAX page 43
4.9.2. Modifying USBShare Capacity Under the heading USB Drive, click the number under the heading Capacity to modify the amount of capacity to be
allocated for the USB access. You can modify this proportion from 0 GB to up to 500 GB (default is 0 GB) (Fig.
65). If you choose to decrease the share size, the volume will be reformatted automatically and all data contained on the volume will be erased. To proceed,
confirm your choice in the popup window. If you modify USBShare size, it is necessary to format the share by clicking the Format button under the USB Drive
heading (Fig. 63, b). IMPORTANT INFO: LaCie strongly recommends you do not increase the USBShare size to more than 128 GB unless you format
USBShare to either NTFS or HFS+ using your operating system's native disk utility. Fig. 65 LaCie Network Space MAX · DESIGN BY NEIL POULTON User

LED.
Note that this will not disable warning indicators. For more details on LED behavior, refer to section 1.3.3. LED Behavior.
Eco Mode after: Set the duration of inactivity after which the drive will revert to Eco mode, which spins down the disks and reducing power consumption. The
product leaves Eco mode automatically when a request is sent to the drive. Deep sleep enabled: Deep sleep means that the drive will enter a very low energy
consumption mode instead of turning off when you click the Shut Down button (see 4.4. Dashboard: Logging Out).
This mode can be triggered by clicking and holding the power button. To wake the drive from Deep Sleep Mode, press the power button or use the Wake on
LAN function in the LaCie Network Assistant (see 4.10.1. Wake on LAN). Scheduled Switch On: Set the drive to activate deep sleep mode at a certain time to
save energy. Scheduled Switch Off: Set the drive to deactivate deep sleep mode at a certain time to save energy. After modifying any of the above parameters,
click the Apply button. IMPORTANT INFO: If Deep Sleep Mode is enabled, clicking the Shut Down button will cause the drive to enter Deep Sleep Mode, and
will NOT switch off the product. When Sleep mode is activated, all processes, including downloads and backups, will be terminated.

Network Space MAX · DESIGN BY NEIL POULTON User Manual Administering Your LaCie Network Space MAX page 50 4.14. Dashboard: Front USB Port
This page provides you with information on devices connected to the Network Space MAX's USB expansion port.
Note that the front USB port is not active when the Network Space MAX is connected to a computer via USB. Multimedia Indexation: Click this box (Fig. 79)
if you want your LaCie Network Assistant devices to be able to access files on the external USB hard drive connected to the Network Space MAX. For details
on connecting a USB hard drive, see 4.14.
1. Connecting an External Hard Disk. The Network Space MAX features a printer server. To activate it, click the Activate Printer Server check box. You can
connect a USB printer to the Network Space MAX via the front USB port.
Once connected, the printer will become available throughout your network. Correct printer drivers must be installed on the host computer. For multifunction printers, only the print feature is supported. If your printer has a scan feature, for example, it will not work when connected to the Network Space
MAX. Please note that the Network Space MAX only supports PostScript printers. If your printer does not display on the Front USB port page, it is likely that
PostScript printing is not available. Multi-function and photo printers generally do not support PostScript printing. Since LaCie cannot guarantee that your
printer supports the proper protocols, please check the user manual of the device. Fig. 79 LaCie Network Space MAX · DESIGN BY NEIL POULTON User
Manual Administering Your LaCie Network Space MAX page 51 4.
14.1. Connecting an External Hard Disk You can connect an external USB hard disk or USB key to back up the data on your LaCie Network Space MAX or as
a way to add storage capacity. Connected hard disks are accessed similarly to shared folders. External USB hard disks must be formatted in one of the
supported systems to be compatible with the LaCie Network Space MAX: MSDOS (FAT32), NTFS, HFS+, EXT3, or XFS. To connect an external hard disk: 1.
Make sure that your LaCie Network Space MAX is connected to your home network. 2. Turn on the external hard disk, connect its power supply (if
applicable), and connect its USB cable to the front USB port (see Fig. 80) on the LaCie Network Space MAX.
3. In a few seconds, the disk should appear as a share in LaCie Network Assistant and in the Dashboard. To access the files on the hard disk, access it like a
regular shared folder as described in section 3. Accessing and Transferring Files (connected USB hard disks are always public shares and are therefore
ReadWrite for all users).
