Beau L.
Hi and Welcome to Newegg! My name is Beau. How Can I help you?
Hi Beau,... Quesiton is.. can this NAS work with windows files and provide windows shares for easy access from workstations?
Basically, can we access files from windows and not have to use their GUI?
Beau L.
Yes you can.
I always recommend the synology system for that.
Compatible with all file formats and everyone can easily connect to the network.
Is synology another manufacturer or a form factor?
Found it
Beau L.
It is another company. I just feel and have had experience with those units and they are much more diverse and reliable.
Consider it sold. We lost a server and I need a quick files server set back up until I can rebuild the old one
Beau L.
I understand totally. Well this would definitely serve as a nice backup as well while you get everything sorted with the old system.
thanks for the help... you are reading my mind.
