We have been using the FreeNAS OS in a couple of old desktop boxes with great success: small HD (2GB?) for OS, three big drives for storage. I believe it will do RAID, although we don’t use it – just a lot of redundancy in backups. Our backups are scheduled from each data source and it is pretty much “hands off” once it is set up. And cheap!

Does anyone have a recommendation for NAS devices ? Seems alot easier than
building a server. Lots of choices..

I would need abt 500 GB, raid 1 if possible.
