Depending on device, this menu shows you whether a Flash Disk is being used. Please note that the devices support the FAT32 format only. To be able to use the flash disk properly, it must be formatted accordingly beforehand. The card can only be formatted if it is first unmounted' using the umount or remove button.

 Note
 The disk is only really unmounted if no folders or files are being accessed any more.
 If, for example, voicemail that is on the flash disk, is accessed, 
 then the block and the subsequent formatting only take effect when the voicemail is no longer being accessed.

To transfer files to the flash disk, the card must be connected as a network drive. This is only possible in a mounted state. Should the flash disk be unmounted, it must be mounted using the mount button.

 Note
 To be able to connect the flash disk as a network drive, the following path must be used:
 "\\<IP address of the gateway>\DRIVE\FLASH".
 User and password correspond to the user and password as configured in chapter "Configuration/General/Admin".

Usage

The following buttons are available:

Info

Shows some usefull infos, e.g. the available free space.

Mount/Umount

Mounts/unmounts the flash disk. If the card is not mounted, it cannot be accessed. It can however be formatted or a checkdisk can be run. If there are open files or folders, the card won't be unmounted and the files/directories will be listed, so that the administrator can decide if an unmount with 'Remove' is secure.

Remove

Also unmounts the flash disk if files or directories are currently opened. Necessary operations will be finished, so that there will be no data inconsistency, but e.g. log files will be closed.

Chkdisk

Checks the flash disk for errors.

Format

Formats the flash disk in the FAT32 format.
Use the checkbox Format the whole flash disk and remove exisiting partitions? if you also want to erase partitions (e.g. if you had installed a Linux Application Platform image).

Browse Content

Allows you to browse through the disk's content. Please note that the flash file system implementation will always show file creation timestamps rather than file modification timestamps (neither modification time stamps nor the archive bit are maintained for speed).
