NAS (Network Attached Storage)
« on: October 14, 2023, 10:10:50 am »
Do anyone here have a NAS (Network Attached Storage)? I think Dave does. I don't have the money right now but I was watching this video and wondered if just Dave uses one or if you do as well Jeff. I thought that my case could handle an external HDD through the front of it but when I tried (and Dave tried after I mentioned to him I could not get any in) he could not get it in neither.

My case is the Apevia X-HERMES-BL ATX Mid Tower PC Gaming Case (NewEgg). You can see the slot I am talking about in the pic here:

I don't have a NAS.  I don't want or need one.  But I do have the next best thing.  Another computer with a spare HDD that is setup for local network sharing.

If you have a modern router that has a USB port, you can plugin a external drive to that if you need access to your files while on the go.

Ah maybe THAT is what Dave has. I think he has a whole other computer just set up for storage of movies. Not sure. I thought he would see this thread by now and tell about his setup.

My old server PC has a spare SSD in it that the server PC itself is not running anything from it.  It's only there for backups.  So, I setup local network sharing to allow other PC's on the network to use that drive for backups too.  It's not the best solution.  But it works for my needs.

Realistically, you should use a pair of matching drives in raid 1.  So, it's a mirror copy on both drives.

Well my 2tb hdd is split evenly to make G and H the same size but is still the same HDD. Other than that I have my 4TB HDD which is D other than my mine which is my SSD.

That won't work.  It has to be 2 or more identical but independent drives to create a raid.  Raid 1 is designed to be a redundant mirror image.  If one drive in the raid array fails, your data is still safely stored on the other drive.

Check out this link.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_RAID_levels

 A Nas isn't really practical at her place, she doesnt have the room for a second tower, the drives alone would be a few hundred and she currently doesn't have a router hooked up.

Exactly. I was just curious about NAS and what it was. I thought it was more like you have Dave. Your set up for movie watching from one of your hard drives I mean.

Well technically, a NAS has a very small, specially designed OS that lets you control it remotely over a network.  Kind of the same way a router works.

But if you have a old, spare computer kicking around that's not really usable anymore, you can chuck in a couple of HDD's and setup a file sharing pool.  It's not a NAS, but you can use it as one.
