Okay, Doug did provide an answer regarding file management:
"All file transfer has to be done through the cloud with the exception of local backup files once the desktop controller is out."
As much as I like the unit and am rooting for it, not having the option to manage files locally is an absolute deal breaker. I'm sorry, but I don't want my shit completely micromanaged by NDSP or any other company.
Well at least things are quite clear now.Hurray..
