    On our network, we have thousands of CSV files that we need to aggregate. They're currently on a NAS device (SNAP server). We've been doing some work like this through VBA from Excel but here's our question. Should we treat the SNAP server like a drive/folder with VBA? Or should we just use...

    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.

  • 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?

    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.
