Suggestions for Data Storage as I move onto campus

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.
I have a 5.25 Tb WHS box that is about 81% full with most files duplicated. I am moving onto campus over the next week (into a grad school student dorm) where I'll have my own bedroom in a suite home to four students. I will be coming back on weekends to help out with the dog and other stuff. I would like to be able to access stuff from the dorms (I'm not talking about WHS's idea of remote access with a 1990s web based gui) and be able to stream 700mb movie files. My upload rate at home tops out at about 200kb/s. What would you guys suggest? I am not averse to bringing the box with me (and putting an entire server backup onto a hard disk in a safety deposit box in case the worst happens) but won't be able to use it on the weekend.

Alternatively I bet my school (Rutgers) will have some amazing transfer rates so maybe I could stream from there. Still how to you stream over the web with a WHS box?

Owch... That upload speed at your house is going to kill it.

team viewer for remote access and Orb to stream media. Not sure if the school network will have any restrictions. might wanna leave box home until you've been at school a few weeks and see what other people are doing.

Nothing like roommates with sticky fingers.
