I plan to use a PC for my office as a server. Its config is 8 GB RAM and 500 GB hard disk. I plan to add one more hard disk of 500 GB and use RAID 1. I will install Windows server 2012 (SBS ) for it.
This server is intended only for file storage and for running a customised MS access application.
Do you feel any downside for this approach ? I actually asked for HP proliant quote , but that is too high (close to 3000 Dollars)..
Can I keep such PC server on from Monday to Friday and shutdown only on weekend ? Any risks ?
