Best Network Attached Storage
Hello, I am interested in a way to share files (such as photos, music, and videos) with those on my home LAN. I have seen many different NAS devices, but I was wondering if it was possible to simply build your own rather than spending money on a whole new setup.
Some of the devices that I saw had expansion bays, as well as the ability to expand storage VIA USB hard/flash drives. I currently have a 250GB USB drive and an old 80GB IDE drive which are just sitting around and I was wondering if I could build/purchase a barebones NAS and then install these devices for the actual storage.
Is this possible or is it just more work than it's worth?
