LinkStation supports Time Machine for Mac users. Schedule backups from one or multiple Mac computers on your network.
Timer ON/OFF function runs the LinkStation only at desired times
The LinkStation features a Timer ON/OFF function that allows the power to be switched on only at predetermined times. This both enhances convenience in using the NAS and conserves energy, and prevents wasted electricity from forgetting to switch the power off. This reduces wasteful power consumption that results from leaving the power on after office hours, on days off, or anytime the drive isn't needed, thus reducing CO2 emissions and helping the Earth's environment.
