That depends on whether you are using a sync utility of some kind (and how it is configured).  Personally I back up my PC to the NAS - that is not sync, so deleting files on the PC won't affect the backups on the NAS.

 

Though of course if you are accessing the NAS network shares from the PC, you can delete the files on the NAS.

 

Do you actually have an ReadyNAS-4200?  It seems likely you'd have a different model (for instance an RN420 series???)
