Marketing Information

The ShareCenter Shadow 2-Bay Network Storage, when used with internal SATA drives, enables users to share documents, files, and digital media such as music, photos, and videos with other users on a home or office network. Users can gain remote access to their files over the Internet using the built-in web/file server or the secure FTP server. Keep data safe by giving rights to specific users or groups and assign them to folders with specific read/write permissions. This is ideal for an office environment with sensitive employee-specific data, or for the home, where children's access can be restricted to only age-appropriate materials. The ShareCenter Shadow also supports Time Machine which allows Apple users to easily back up any Mac computers running OS X (10.5 or later).

    • Overview

      The D-Link DNS-325 ShareCenter device supports storage capacity up to 8TB so everyone on your network can back up and share their documents, music, photos and videos to a central location and access them remotely over the Internet. Plus, it features a built-in photo app for creating and easily sharing photo albums, and a USB print server so you can share a single USB printer with all of the computers in your home.

      Raid 1 Technology

      RAID 1 is like a backup for your backup. It causes the drives in your storage device to mirror each other, so if one drive fails the unaffected drive will continue to function until the failed one is replaced.

      Web File Server and FTP Server

      The DNS-325 includes a built-in Web File server and FTP server to make accessing files remotely, over the Internet, a breeze. The FTP server will come in handy when you need to share a file too big to e-mail to a friend.

      DLNA Server

      This ShareCenter device has a built-in media server that can stream your photos, music and videos to all of the computers in your home and to compatible media players like the Boxee Box by D-Link, Xbox and PlayStation 3 so you can enjoy it all on your TV.

      10/100/1000 Gigabit Port

      The 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet port gives you blazing fast speeds so you can back up and access your data without the wait.

      Cooling Fan

      There’s no overheating in this device’s future. It comes with a quiet, built-in cooling fan that only comes on when needed, saving you power and money.

      D-Link Easy Search Utility

      The D-Link Easy Search Utility allows you to locate your ShareCenter from anywhere on the network and map your network drive so it will conveniently appear in "My Computer" on your PC.

      Backup Software

      The included feature-rich backup software allows you to create schedules and rules including full or incremental backups.

      Easy Setup

      Not quite the handyman? That’s ok. You can insert hard drives without using any tools or attaching any cables.  The DNS-325 supports up to two 3.5" SATA hard drives.

      D-Link Green

      This product allows hard drives to enter sleep mode when not in use to conserve electricity and prolong the life of the hard disk. Plus, it uses recyclable packaging and complies with the European Union’s RoHS directive.

      USB Print Server

      This storage device can also serve as a print server, allowing you to share a single USB printer over your network. The USB port can also support a Universal Power Supply (UPS) monitor that supports ‘smart’ signaling over a USB connection. If a power outage were to occur, the compatible UPS monitor would allow the UPS unit to safely shut down the ShareCenter.


      AjaXplorer is a file explorer that allows you to remotely manage your files using a web browser. Stay protected - anywhere, anytime.

      Mac Friendly

      Not to worry, Mac users! ShareCenter can back up your data regardless of your computer's operating system (Windows, Mac or Linux)

      Support for:

      AFP (MAC), Time Machine (MAC), NFS (Linux) 

      Photo Center

      Are you tired of sending individual photos through email? The ShareCenter Photo Center app provides a convenient interface from which you can create and share photo albums with friends and family easily over the web.

      Audio Streamer

      Stream music throughout your home. The Audio Streamer allows you to transmit multiple streams of audio to any device with an Internet connection, whether it be your computer, TV or tablet.

      Logitech Squeeze Center

      Connect your Logitech Media Squeezebox player to your ShareCenter and play endless hours of music files stored on your deivce.

    1. 1 Hard drive(s) not included with DNS-325 model. DNS-325-110 includes 1 x 1TB SATA drive. An internal 3.5" SATA drive is required to store or share files and must be formatted before use. RAID 0 and RAID 1 require the use of two (2) SATA drives. To avoid drive incompatibility in RAID 0 or RAID 1 operation, use SATA drives from the same manufacturer. Formatted drive capacity for RAID 1 operation is dependent on the drive capacity of the lower-sized drive. May not work with older generation SATA drives. For a list of SATA drives that have been tested to work with the DNS-325 visit the FAQs section.
    2. 2 3-Year Limited Warranty available only in the USA and Canada.
