Since dads house burned up and he lost everything including the backup drives I was thinking about put something in my shed or small barn to backup PC and store photos etc. on. Everything I have been reading about the NAS say slow transfer speeds on the single drive buffalo, seagate, WD etc.
I have a cat 6 cable run to it with a switch out there all giagabit from the router own out to the switch. I have a WD 2TB mybook thought aboiut putting it out there but it gets awful hot in there not sure how it would hold up in this texas heat.
Just looking for some suggestions, I have a pc I could put out there read a little about building a NAS out of one not sure whats the best easiest route. I have to do the same at dads other place except its a big barn I already have cat 6 to it also. Its gonna have to be something simple for him hes not to good with computers but wants his stuff to auto back up out there...
