Where XXXX is the serial number:
For LiivNAS-XXXX, it will be : \\LiivNAS-XXXX
For RACK24-XXXX, it will be : \\RACK24-XXXX

  • Once typed in, you'll see a login - use the default login as follows:

Username: Owner
Password: 123456

  • Locate the movie folder where the movie you want to delete is located (such as MOVIES or MOVIES 2)
  • Highlight the title to be deleted, and press DELETE (DEL) on your keyboard, and click YES to confirm.
  • The movie is now physically removed!

Method 2: Via Direct Server Access / Using the Server's Interface
