I have an Imac at home that's starting to fill up (photos, music etc.). I also use a windows laptop.
I need to clear space on the mac so was thinking I should set up some sort of home server, to store all the photos, music etc on. I'd like the server to allow me access the content from either computer over my home network. If I could also securely access it over the web that would be great.
I've done a small bit of research and a few people have said NAS is the way forward. However, I've had a look at a few of these and there seems to be a lot of problems with hardware failure.
Has anyone any reccomendations on how to proceed. Is there a home server solution out there that doesn't cost big bucks? Is buying a cheap laptop and using it as a server a viable option (can you access over the net?).
Thanks for any help.
