    Default Change from NAS 2.0(problems with win7) to DSS 6 lite

    I am Nescafogold from Germany.
    I had since 5 years NAS2.0 and was happy.
    Now I changed my other 4 PCs from Win XP to Windows7 (64 and 32).

    The connection with NAS2.0 now has problems.

    Read no problem.(You could follow/see mpg files /video.)
    Copy from and to PCs with bigger files and as a mass is impossible, small ones no problem,
    But long copy time , and so on....

    I think, I have to change to DSS lite ?
    Now my question:
    Is it possible to overwrite the old NAS2.0 in the way I do an update with 2.0 ?
    Or do I have to set up all new?

    I dont want to loose my user-names/groups/rights/structure.
    And I dont want to save my files on another target.

    If I have to set up all new with DSS lite, in which way do I have to do this? Via DVD ?

    Is there another help, using NAS2.0 with update or anything else, as "never change a running hourse" is right ...... Is the Problem windows7/64 ??

    You will need to start new as the Lite version wont see the volumes from the NAS 2.0.

    Are you trying to copy you data from the windows 7 system to the NAS server, then create a NAS Share then make user with password or use Guest without password for the Share.

    This video from the link below shows how to access your data from a created NAS volume from a windows system.
