For users with X64 based systems, Terramaster offers a public beta of their TOS 5 operating system that is upgraded in speed and overall user experience.
Below are the details for installing the new BETA. Before starting the test, please be sure to read the following precautions carefully.
1. A beta version is an early version of a program that contains most of the main features, but is not yet complete and may have some defects. This version is only released to a select group of people, or to the general public, for testing and feedback;
2. The Beta version is not suitable for use in work or production environments. If your TNAS device is running business or storing important data, please do not participate in this test;
3. The root file system, storage mount path, application storage location, and startup mode of TOS 5 are different from those of other versions. You will not be able to install TOS 5 through an update, but will need to reinstall the system. Reinstalling the system normally will not delete the data on your hard disk, but for safety, please be sure to back up your data in advance;
4. The Beta version released this time is only applicable to TNAS models in X.86 series (220 series, 221 series, 420 series, 421 series, 422 series);
5. Your current TOS version must be 4.2.09 or higher;
6. TOS 5 Beta requires a new version of TNAS PC (Windows OS: V5.0.12 / macOS: V5.0.12) and TNAS Mobile (Android: V5.0.1 / iOS:V5.0.1).
