Introduction to managing devices
Topics in this section
In addition to managing your digital content, the EdgeRover™ app allows you to manage supported WD™ and SanDisk® storage devices1.
Under External Storage device icons, clicking on opens a menu where you will see the commands available. In addition to the commands Catalog Device or Remove Catalog there are device specific commands:
For most devices:
- Eject – Prepare the storage device so that it can be unplugged safely.
If supported by the device, you will see these additional commands:
- Set Lock – Password protect the contents on the device.
- Device Settings – Configure the device, such as editing the device's name, turning the LED on/off, setting a sleep timer, et cetera.
- Erase Device – Format the device.
Tip: It is advisable to give each device a unique name so that when the EdgeRover app informs you that a file is on a device, you know which one is referenced.
