Note: logging into Amber OS at least once is required before Amber can be connected via Samba.
Amber is designed to make storing and sharing files within your local network quick and simple, allowing you to directly access folders and files on Amber without going through the hassle of logging into the Web GUI every time. For example, you'll be able to transfer files in Amber with Windows File Explorer just like another device - making moving files around very simple.
Note: When Amber is low on 8% of the free storage space. To protect critical system services, we stopped file uploading, also turn Samba, AFP, FTPS to read-only mode. Those services will be available again when there is more than 10% storage released.
