Network-attached storage stashes all your files out of sight yet makes them available to any computer, anytime
As your media collection grows from bite-size to terabyte-size, it’s easy to run out of hard-drive space. Adding internal or external drives to a PC is simple enough, but what if you want several computers in your home to have access to the files? The ideal solution is network-attached storage, or NAS. As the name implies, NAS consists of one or more hard drives connected to your router and available to any computer on the network. Unlike a shared drive on one of the PCs, files on NAS are accessible no matter which computers are running.
