    Do you have the original software that came with it to control or does it have a Web interface that you access bu typing Ip address into browser address bar?

    Can't find link, please recheck post.

    Anyway not sure how your NAS works but you would sign in. They should have some sort of "Storage" function.

    It should allow you to delete, shrink, format etc.


    I guess I should ask, why are you trying to format? Is there an underlying issue?

    See page 76 in the manual.

    Factory Reset
    Factory Reset returns the Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d to its original state. This feature is useful if you give your Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d to someone else.

    Factory Reset provides three options for returning your Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d to its original state:
    • Preserve users and Shares (default) does not delete users or folders. Information on the drive is preserved and user and Share settings are added back after the reset.
    • Quickly delete all data permanently deletes all record of existing or deleted data, users, and passwords.
    • Securely delete all data this option takes significantly longer, but provides an added security benefit by permanently erasing all data on the drives to prevent recovery of existing or deleted data, users, and passwords. The secure delete operation renders all data irrecoverable.

    In web interface, access from browser?
    If yes, in what submenu?

    Sorry, I don't have a StorCenter so can't help with the details. Maybe someone who does use an Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d will be able to help.

    The manual should have the answers you are looking for. As far as I can see from reading it, you should find it in the Console which you can get to from the Home Page or the Iomega Storage Manager.

    Try this link. Click on the Iomega tab when you get there.

    LenovoEMC : Europe : English : Support & Downloads

    Might not find exact match think closest is ix4-300d
