I forgot about FreeNAS - seems like an easy
enough way to recycle some of the older hardware. I remember watching a YOUtube
video about that ..
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!

anyone have a recommendation for NAS devices ? Seems alot easier
building a server. Lots of choices..
I would need abt 500 GB,
raid 1 if possible.
