• Best RAID configuration for large NAS

    I'm in the midst of building a large NAS box but I'm not which drive configuration is the best option for me. I thought about using a Areca ARC controller and hanging all 24 drives off of it. My friend came up with the idea of mounting all of it as one volume (due to the amount of data). We would...

  • Best way to backup a NAS drive to a USB drive

    Anyone know the best way to backup 600 GB+ of data on a NAS drive to a USB external drive? I need to make weekly copies (in case of an emergency). I already tried xcopy but it crashed pretty quickly. The NAS drive is a D-Link DNS and the USB drive is a Seagate. Thank you so much.

    On my Western Digital NAS, I currently have a pictures folder. Using Windows 7, when I click on it, I always get the loading icon that lasts a long time.

  • Slow Wi-Fi performance when doing rsync from Mac to NAS

    I've noticed that when I try to do a rsync from my Mac to my NAS, it runs serious slow upload speeds. On my files that are 20 MB+, it runs very slow. But when I disable my Wi-Fi and connect through an Ethernet cable, the upload speed is great. Is the problem with the Wi-Fi? If not, what should I do?

  • Dedicated servers for home made NAS server

    From what I understand, I know that there are dedicated servers for routing and telephony (among other things). Would anyone happen to know if there's something for home made NAS servers? I need to use some old hardware for storage of videos and pictures.

  • How to use Lightroom with images on a NAS with Microsoft Windows and Mac

    I'm using Lightroom on a NAS and I understand that it can run on both a PC and laptop, as long as both aren't running at the same time. But does anyone know if I can run it on a shared set of images between a Windows PC and Mac? Will Lightroom prohibit this? I would appreciate any help available.

  • Best way to backup terabytes of data

    I have roughly about 1 TB of data as of today with plenty more to go (I'll get to 2 TB in the near future). It's mainly encoded videos from my DVDs and I'm wondering what's the best way to go about backing all of it up. Would a NAS suffice?

    I apologize if this is a stupid question but if I move several files around my NAS box, would the data go through my Microsoft Windows PC? What happens when I copy the files? I'm asking because I was always scared to do a cleanup on my NAS. I wasn't sure if the files take a long time to move.
