Title: Method for starting up file sharing system and file sharing device

Abstract: The file sharing system of the present invention is capable of starting up a file sharing device and preventing the connection of an external storage medium to an erroneous host using information that is saved in the external storage medium. In cases where the maintenance exchange work for a NAS device is performed, the collection section collects information that is required in order to start up the NAS system section. The saving section stores the collected information in the USB memory as startup information. In cases where the NAS device is returned after the maintenance exchange is complete, the USB memory is attached to the NAS device. The setting section reads the startup information that is stored in the USB memory and sets the communication control section in accordance with an instruction from the startup control section. As a result, the NAS-OS is read from the logical volume in the storage device and the NAS system section starts up.
