With people's experience using a NAS which one seems to be the easiest to use? I am getting this for a friend of mine and he wants some things to be able to do. He wants to be able to access with his iPad at home and on the road. His co worker needs to be able to access it when he is on the road also from his laptop. The user interface needs to be user friendly if that is possible. 4 bay would be good so raid 5 can be used. Anyone care to give their 2cents. Thanks

I was wondering how for example drop box or a NAS is coping with the different file systems on different operating systems when sharing a folder? I was reading more about the different file systems and noticed that they ol have their size limits or they all safe their files in a different way. But how is it possible to have shared network folder between these different operating systems and their file systems. Because for example a FAT32 file system cannot have files larger than 4GB. But what if a user with a NTFS file system shares a folder with …

Heya all, First of all, sorry if this is the wrong part of the forum to post on, i was doubting between the networking and OS forums. Currently, i have a freecom [silverstore-2-NAS](http://www.freecom.com/Products/External-Hard-Drives/Network-Hard-Drives/SilverStore2) but i feel the software is rather restrictive to me. So what i'd like to do is install custom firmware/OS but i'm not quite sure if it's possible or not. i've already looked at FreeNAS although i doubt it will be able to run this: the memory requirements seem to be out of the roof, in comparison. Does anyone know if this is possible, or should start …

Hello everyone. I would like to know if there is a factory default configuration for the WD My book world NAS. I am helping a friend that has one of those in their office and the web interface states that the capacity is 1TB but nowhere in the gui did i find anything about the current raid configuration. The only option is to change it. I would like to know if it has 2x1TB disks running raid 1 or 2x500GB disks running raid 0. Nothing found on Western Digital's website or manuals. Thanks in advance!

Hi guys, I have a problem with my synology NAS that I can not seem to figure out myself. Everything seemed to work like a charm before, but when I took out my router from my network and put it in again things got ugly. Before I was able to ping the NAS and add it as a network disk in windows explorer. After, pinging goes wrong accept when I go to the web interface of the NAS at the same time as pinging. The disk can not be accessed through windows explorer anymore. Ping: > Pinging 192.168.0.123 with 32 …

Hi guys, I am trying to connect my PC to my NAS by using a network switch. My previous setup worked like a charm: switch |--> router --------|--> NAS --------|--> PC I could connect from PC to NAS without any problems. My new setup is no longer working: switch |--> NAS |--> PC I cannot see my NAS in the list of devices that are connected to the network. Anyone any ideas? Or is the router absolutely necessary for what I want to do?

I am currently running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, AMD FX-6100 Six-Core Processor 3.3 GHz, 8.00 GB RAM, 64-bit OS. My problem occurs while running Excel and Word 2007. However, all systems with 2007 or 2010 office have the same issues in our office.(Some are XP, Windows 7 and one Vista) We are using a Seagate NAS for the file storage and have been trying to use the recycle bin as intended with these drives to catch any good files from being deleted. However, every time a .xlsx or .docx file is opened an exact copy of the file is …

Hi all, Our small business is currently using an online file server for our file sharing needs. Recently, there have been complaints around the office about the server. In particular, the problem people have the biggest issue with is file linking. MS Excel links don't work for files on the server (where you link cells in one worksheet file to automatically update based on cells in another worksheet). After speaking with customer support, the service told me that we should get a NAS device and set it up to work with their file backup. I'm fine with the idea of …

When it comes to data storage and retrieval the current buzz is undoubtedly cloud-shaped, so why would anyone want to invest in Network Attached Storage? Two words: cost and capacity. Cloud services are great, but as far as storing and accessing large amounts of data is concerned things can get very expensive not to mention a little on the slow and clumsy side. Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices solve both the cost per Mb issue and that of access speeds. Unfortunately, setting up a NAS server to work how you want it has traditionally been a fairly complex business and …
