    I want to grab one of these, and have found these three. I don't really care too much about online access or streaming to loads of devices (I don't have a TV or tablet or anything fancy). I essentially just want to transfer my files once (maybe 2tb worth), do some periodic syncing (I might even...

    I am looking to setup a new NAS box. I used to have a workstation setup with FreeNAS and a few TBs of space. Worked great. Did major housel cleaning on data and didnt have a need anymore. Now I have a need again. What are you guys using out there? I was looking to get one of these: PowerEdge...

    So, backstory… The wife wanted to transfer a large file, I tried setting up my Synology NAS as an FTP server, and I haven't been able to connect to it since with my iMac. I can access it via this link: http://192.168.1.1xx:5000/webman/index.cgi …Which I had to find using the...

    Looking for something to finally move my data off my computer. I think I'd prefer to get a NAS box that also acts as a media server and will transcode stuff for my PS3 and my brother's Xbox. I know the pre-built hardware NAS boxes offer media server capabilities, but I don't think they'll do...

    Still thinking about getting the wife a mac mini, so I'm thinking also about a file server. The early plan was to reformat her ancient PC into a linux file server, but fuck that. I don't have that kind of time :lol: I currently have a WD 1TB backup drive on my iMac (with internal 500GB HDD)...

    So I'm looking to get a twin bay NAS and stick 2x 3TB HDD's in it in the near future. However, I've had to sell my BD drive from my PC, as my watercooling would kink if I had it in. Also, the front of my PC is facing away from me, so it's a pain to reach if I still had one in. I'm hoping to find...
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    This is for OSX, but it will work in Windows as well if you have Cygwin installed. It's more of an IT thing but since I'm using it for backing up Reaper, I'll toss it in this forum. First, you need something to actually back your files up to. A NAS will do, or a USB hard drive. (Or an FTP...

    And then there were three.. :yesway: Left one (1TB Raid 1) is my personal backup for pictures, finance stuff etc. Middle one is my HTPC/Media server (4TB Raid 5), and the new one on the right (2TB Raid 0) is for rsyncing my recording stuff from. I should be able to get Reaper to auto-launch...

    Yep. Network attached storage. I looked at the D-Link DNS-321 but I'm unsure about it. Criteria, At least two bays UPnP Server RAID Gigabit Networking Sub $300 price range Since many of you guys might have experience with these I'm looking for suggestions so that I don't buy a P.O.S.

    After hearing some good reviews from guys at work, I snagged a 2TB Buffalo Linkstation NAS today: Buffalo Technology - Products - LinkStation Pro Duo™ First impressions: I really like it. I'm running it RAID1, so it's 1TB of usable mirrored storage. One of the key things that I like...
