What are the USB ports on Box used for?

The USB ports are not required. They're used only in rare cases to:

  1. add high-capacity local storage so that the pending upload queue can grow very large in order to be resilient even to very long Internet connection outages.
  2. specify the network configuration when the Box is on a network without DHCP.
  3. reset to the factory-default firmware and settings to recover from an incorrectly specified static network configuration.
