comment Can't map network drive
@BigChris - Usually they do. Like I said there were historic reasons for that setup (which no longer apply). I was probably the only customer directly connected to their servers :-).

comment Can't map network drive
@BigChris - Yes, it's on a home network (well, the PC is, and the NAS should be). I guess the NAS operates as a DHCP server, not client. According to the manual I should be able to edit default gateway, but it's not an edit box. An edit button only lets me change service order (whatever that may be). I know about programming, but I'm not very network-savvy, and this NAS is so complex to configure that IMO complete laymen never can do it. If you think the gateway is the problem I'll add about that in my question. Thanks for your reply.

@Dave - Thanks for your reply. I tried with the firewall of, no avail. BTW, doesn't the fact that I can access the NAS in my browser mean that it's not the firewall?

comment What's causing my hard disk's activity?
Thanks. Unfortunately when you click a disk in the storage pane it doesn't seem to filter the processes that use this disk. (Correct?)

comment How can I delete .FON files on a Windows 7 PC?
No, it's not a default font. It's just a file that happens to be so unlucky to have a .FON extension. It's not even on the system partition!

I'm aware of the procedure, it's just that I had overlooked that the J was assigned to an unconnected(!) removable device. Thanks for the answer, anyway.

Yes, I see the screen you posted on screencast. (But this also doesn't show the buttons, and neither are they on the toolbar.)
