Since a NAS is primarily about storage, an application to manage your storage is inevitable. The pages you find in Storage Manager depend on the storage-related features of your NAS.
Apart from a status overview of your disks, storage pools, and volumes, you can also perform maintenance tasks.


The Storage Manager app is part of DSM. It is permanently installed, and you can not uninstall it.
