Hi im am used to dealing more in a SMB environment so working with SBS servers etc but have got a question for a home user on data storage etc.
Im just looking in NAS devices as I haven't really used them much I get the concept but for a home user would you use them as just a backup device or would you use them to just store the data on?
So would the PC still have a large secondary HDD to store the data or should it all be moved to a NAS device?
Im guessing that a good NAS will come with backup software to backup the home PC etc so that's not a problem but if you are using the NAS to store all the data how do you then backup that in case of fire etc?
Do any NAS devices come with off-site "Cloud" backup or can you get separate software that will allow a remote backup of the data?
Currently the user is using SkyDrive to sync his pictures folder but all the other data is just held on a single HDD in the main PC would is not the best setup?
Any advise on a NAS solution or off-site backup would be great thanks.
