Noe...catalogs still need to be run from a local disk–you can backup to NAS, just not from a catalog on NAS.

Hi Jeff,

Didn't expect to see you hanging out here. Good to cross paths with you. I'm still chuckling over the "make my image look like crap button," I first heard you rant about during the Epson Print Academy in Boston several years ago. That you managed to get a smile out of John Paul was quite an accomplishment.

Indeed, I back up to NAS -- I have four separate 12TB NAS units each running RAID 5 -- and each is a mirror of the others. And that's just the onsite backups. There's also off-site via WAN, USB drives rotated into my bank's safe-deposit box, and the cloud storage (not backup) service. One can't be too careful about protecting data, a lesson well-learned from my mainframe days.
