Installing the Hard Drive
Start by unpacking the unit (obviously). If you’ve used other NAS (network-attached storage) units before, you’ll immediately notice the CTERA C200 is similar in size. It’s ports include a gigabit ethernet port and 2 USB slots (for additional storage).
On the back of the unit, you’ll find a plastic panel. Simply remove this by pressing down on the release.
Once the plastic panel is removed, insert your hard drives into the back compartment. They are supposed to be staggered, so don’t be alarmed if they don’t line up evenly. Once you hear them both click in you can reattach the plastic panel.
Never use normal hard drives in the CTERA. Always use drives made specifically for CTERA.
Once you turn your CTERA on, it will recognize the presence of the hard drives and allow you to begin setting them up.
