I thought QNAP had stopped updating firmware for my NAS (see earlier post) yet I had one this morning. Maybe it was a security thing rather than a feature enhancement. I didn't read the release notice.
I found it hard to believe they'd abandon a piece of hardware like that so simply. Businesses rely on them and can't just go upgrading willy nilly. It costs money for tech help and copying TBs of data could take a couple of days.
