Dominick - keep in mind that the Frontview interface to RAIDiator is roughly akin to a merger of your BIOS and Control Panel on your Windows PC. You go into it to set things up and once set up, unless there are problems you normally don't need to go into it very often. When I got my old NV+ set up some 5 years ago, it was actually years before I had to go into it again.
If you are on a Windows PC, most of your interaction with the files on the machine on a regular/daily basis will be through either Windows Explorer or Computer. The ReadyNAS will show up in the network section of the listing and each share (first level folders) will show up under the NAS name when you click on the arrow and you can then expand the folder listing all the way down and see the listing of files the same way you can with a computer drive. In fact, you can also map a share to a drive letter and access the files directly with PC applications. In fact, all of my files are on the NAS with no significant data on any of my PC's. This allows me to access any of my files from any PC.
The section of Frontview most of us use the most is the status area to either check the health of a drive by checking the smart stats of a drive (takes 2 clicks to get to the drive listing and one more for the SMART stats of any drive) or checking the log file under status (again two clicks - status and then on logs). A detailed download of all logs only takes 3 clicks, so it is not a real problem.
Remember - the NAS is not a backup plan.
Backup = Good, No Backup = Bad
