- In the Run window, type \\(the IP address or hostname) and press Enter.
Example: \\192.168.x.xx or \\ba-xxxxxx
The Network window opens.

- Open another window containing the source data that you want to move to the USM drive.
- Drag the data from the window to the USM drive, which will appear as USMShare or something similar.
- Enter the Finder menu, and locate the Seagate Business NAS under Shared. Click on the drive.
- On the top-right hand side of the Finder window, click on Connect As.
- Log in with your user's credentials for the Nas. This will give you access to all the folders your user has access to.
