NAS question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I want to set up a 2 drive NAS for my family to use, with either 3 or 4 TB drives. My question is

a) what brand do you recommend?
b) Do they work on Mac and Windows simultaneously, half my family use Mac the other use windows rolleyes.gif
c) is there any way of partitioning the NAS drive with passwords so that each member of the family can have their own partition?

Thank you so much!

Do you plan on buying something that is already pre-built? or do you plan on using something like freenas? Either one will have support for partitions, users and permissions along with being able to be used with windows and mac OS.

Just buying a NAS enclosure and then put my own drives in. Do the enclosures come with software and if so which would you recommend? thanks
