hogwild added explanation of subtree check

 **Sync/Async** - when set to Sync (Synchronous), the FreshTomato will only acknowledge data after it's been written out. The Async(hronous) setting configures for the opposite behaviour. The NFS server will acknowledge data before it's committed to disk, which can lead to data corruption if the server crashes. **Sync/Async** - when set to Sync (Synchronous), the FreshTomato will only acknowledge data after it's been written out.

-**Subtree_check** - Helps when one folder is exported but one or more of the subfolders is not.+**Subtree_check** - This option disables subtree checking, which has mild security implications, but can improve reliability in some circumstances. In NFS, if a subdirectory of a filesystem is exportedbut the whole filesystem isn't, then whenever a NFS request arrives, the server must check not only that the accessed file is in the appropriate filesystem (which is easy) but also that it is in the exported tree (which is harder). This check is called the subtree_check. 
 + 
 +In order to perform this check, the server must include some information about the location of the file in the "filehandle" that is given to the client. This can cause problems with accessing files that are renamed while a client has them open (though in many simple cases it will still work).
