• How do I set up a NAS network drive and how is it accessed? What about security?

    How can I set up a NAS device on my network? Will the users access files directly on it? Do we need to set security here or will the device be an extension of one of my Windows servers using it’s security? What is common practice?

  • Suggestions for home storage solution

    I work at home, and I often have files upwards of 4GB. Would a normal NAS FAT32 be adequate or do I need a NTFS because of file size? How is data recovery with NTFS if something happens to the NAS? Would I need to buy a GLAN? Any advice, including brands, is welcome.
