Best way/equipment to store files?


Im looking at a large capacity method to store my vids in the safest way

I was looking at nas drives but they seem quite expensive, then i thought about making my own nas drive with some decent drives e.t.c what do you all use?


I would recommended purchasing a external drive not a media player to store files for backup if  that’s what you are suggesting.

I’m using a nas for our family pictures & videos + our music!

The internal + 2 usb hd for movies!

The nas is the safest way to keep data, especially if it’s set to mirroring and you create frequent backups!

Thanks I don’t want to spend ages putting everything on for a drive to fail looked at has drives but there very expensive and though about building my own with freenas but not 100% sure what to do e.t.c
