Once the account is registered, you will be greeted to the main User interface of the MyCloud. During the installation we also updated the firmware to the version indicated below. As you can see this is a 3TB version of the device.  Over here you can setup the users that can access the device, the shares and permissions, the cloud access and safepoints.
