The steps outlined in this article refer only to ElephantDrive packages manually installed in DSM 7. The version of ElephantDrive available in the Package Center already has the necessary permissions to access the NAS filesystem.
To allow the ElephantDrive application to access your shares for backup, please follow the steps outlined below:
1. Open DSM 7 in your favorite browser
2. Open the "Control Panel"
3. Open "Shared Folder"
4. Click once in the share to select it, and then click on "Edit"
5. Click on "Permissions", and in the drop-down menu, select "System internal user" and check the option "Read/Write" for the "elephantdrive" user. It is strongly recommended that the permission "Read/Write" is checked instead of "Read Only" since restore jobs download and write files to the share.
6. Click on "Save" and repeat these steps for all the shares you wish to backup.
