    The Snapserver is a network-attached storage (NAS) device dedicated to file storage. The Snapserver emulates various file services including Windows, Apple, Netware, and UNIX. Since the Snapserver emulates a Windows server, a Windows system may use its native method of copying data to the Snapserver. A Windows system can simply map a drive to the Snap server and copy data via drag and drop in Windows Explorer.
