  • 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?

  • Should I use ZFS and RAID-Z with a home made NAS?

    I currently work from my home and I have a NAS. I'm thinking of using ZFS and RAID-Z with it (seems like a good fit). Has anyone used either one before? If so, are there any disadvantages? Thanks.

    Does anyone know of a good NAS for a home-server environment? I would need around 4 disks and would need good throughput for file server / backup purposes. Also, RAID support would be a plus. I have millions of images / files that I need to store. Any advice would be helpful.

  • Moving files to a NAS box on a Windows PC

    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.

  • Backup a large storage server

    I'm implementing a large server that's going to be used as a live NAS for several other servers. The server will have about 4 - 20 TB of useable space. It will be on RAID 10 for performance concerns but we need a backup solution (including off-site backup). Is there a way to backup that much data?
