RE: [LinkStation_General] Re: Set time on LinkStation
Thank you for all the great info. I’m new to the list and have a question. Is it possible to have two USB disks connected to the LinkStation? I can’t seem to get it to recognize the second USB drive. If I try to make a share folder named usbdisk2 it tells me that I can’t use that name so that makes me think that it knows it is there but just won’t link me to it. The other question I have is why the LinkStation is sharing a printer that does not exist since I have none connected to it?

Right after /etc/cron.d/calib_time.sh is run (once an hour if you
changed your crontab), the RTC and the system time will be the same.
Then you can read the system time simply by typing "date" (but you
probably knew that).
