Need help on selecting external storage unit with 4 drives for server?
I need a reasonably priced NAS or server attached type storage device that has removable drives. We have one Windows 2003 server.
I would like to be able to take drives home (at times) for safekeeping in case of on site disaster affecting select data files, or when any one drive in unit is full.
Need ability to copy files to a select hard drive with individual mappings to any of the 4 (or so) physical drives.
This assumes you can turn off Raid and NOT have to address unit as JBOD-4 drives configured as single spanned drive.
Do not need hot swap capability-want to be able to put in regular drives, perhaps mix sizes/perhaps not.
Do not want to build my own.
Looked at Lacie Quadra but not sure I can do all of the above. I realize it does not have an Ethernet port but I can live with that...
