You can make the NAS the main repository if you want. Then you could use Frontview Backup to make your own backup of the family shares (to a USB drive or your home PC). One disadvantage of this approach is that access to their folders will be limited by your uplink speed.egovego wrote:Hi Stephen, thanks for your comments.
Your suggestion sounds reasonable, I can definitely go with separate shares for different users. I can make a yet separate share where I send them files, in 95% of the cases it's photos which I want to share with all of them (and the rest is never private stuff), so that makes sense as well. EDIT: this could maybe be a mapped network drive where they only have read-access, so I don't actually send them the files
Good question. I figure the NAS is meant to function as a backup, not a server. The real data stays on their computers, I primarily want to make backups of it. So I guess they should have some sort of (3rd party) software which takes care of the backup work to the NAS. I presume this also means that they shouldn't put files on a mapped network drive, but rather on the internal drive, from where it is copied to the network drive? (If it should even be done this way, maybe an FTP solution or something else is the right way, this is why I'm asking )
Again, thanks for your input!
