NAS Question
Sep 24, 2009

I'm sort of confused about the use of NAS.

If the NAS is your destination for saving files (archiving?), is not this unit also hard drive based. If a hard drive dies in your computer, why then is a NAS any better? Does NAS have multiple drives and one is a mirror?

I can's see how an NAS offers protection of files while still using a single hard drive (or multiple drives used as a single large drive).

What am I missing?

Thank you,
