Little NAS for home file sharing + torrent
Hi guys, last year i played with a old Dell latitude d820 laying around and i turned it into a nas using nas4free (now XIGMANAS) embedded installation on usb stick and an old 500gb drive (from 2010...). Originally was only for "learning" purpose, but i noticed having a NAS at home is very useful.
This notebook has proved to be really stable, but it has a dead battery, so whenever there is a blackout it shuts down...
It's time to a little UPGRADE: i just ordered a battery replacement on ebay. I think i'll migrate to OPENMEDIAVAULT since i'm little more confident with debian-linux than bsd.
I was thinking of buying a 2,5" WD red 2TB nas drive.... but they don't exists... only 1TB for 2.5" size.
Now the question is, it's okay to buy a WD BLUE 2TB drive for home nas purpose, or it's "mandatory" to buy a NAS optimized drive? Eventually can someone suggests me affordable 2,5" nas drives?
(sorry for my "english")
