Manage file systems

Last Updated: Nov 27, 2017

After activating NAS, you can create a file system and purchase a storage package for it in the NAS console. The NAS console also enables you to view the file system details and remove unnecessary file systems.

Create a file system

Log on to the NAS console and click Create File system to create a file system. For detailed instructions, see Create a file system.

After a file system is created, you can purchase a storage package for it so you can begin using resources. Click Buy Storage Package on the File Systems page. When configuring your storage package, select the file system to assign the package to. Note that one file system can only be assigned one storage package. For detailed instructions, see Purchase a storage package. Note that fees are based on actual resource usage.

Alternatively, you can go directly to the NAS Storage Package purchase page and select Create new FS and bind package for File System ID. This allows you to create a file system and assign it a storage package at the same time.

Delete a file system

On the File Systems page, you can delete a file system that has no mount points by clicking Delete under it.

To delete a file system that has mount points, you must delete its mount points on the Details page first.

Note: Once a file system is deleted, the data cannot be recovered. Take care when you perform this operation.

View file system details

On the File Systems page, click File System ID or Manage under a file system to go to its File System Details page.

On the File System Details page, you can:

  • View basic information for the file system, including File system ID, Region, Zone, and Storage Capacity.
  • View and manage the file system’s mount points. Available actions include Change Permission Group, Enable/Disable, and Add/Delete.
