What is it with NAS storage that would make me want to get more? I am not sure.
Got another one
So I picked up, one last time. Not sure about that. But maybe the last one for at least a year. I picked up the following from Western Digital.
I should really have my own afflicted link with WD.
Yes, this is a big 56 TB hard drive. I do have it raided, so not all of that is available for use. But, this is going to be the one that holds all the following:
- Word Document
- Any other file
- Back up’s for MacBooks
The entertainment will stay off for the time being. I am still thinking of what to do with that.
I am not sure why I got this, I mean I think I am just obsessed with storage. Always, thinking I will run out of space and lose things. I can also argue that my other NAS storage devices are getting old and not supported anymore. Makes them more vulnerable to hackers and your data is gone.
I guess that is why I am adding more and more storage.
Am I happy with it?
Yes, I am happy with it. The space and the device is great.
The price of it?
Yes, the price was a bit high at $2,500. This price was fine with me. But, my wife didn’t understand why I needed that mulch storage, and why it costed so much.
Going to work?
It will work for what I would like it to work for now. I will most likely need to do something different. But that is down the road.
You can’t have too much storage for your stuff, I thought paper was bad, but it appears that there is a crap load of digital files that need to be saved. Like the following:
- A lot of iPhones
- PDF files
- This is from scanned-in bills that still come in paper format
- Files I save from the internet
- Things for my blogs and stuff
- From my YouTube channel
And so on.
I am looking into just getting one just for Mac OS devices, so I can move my iMovie files over to that one and keep them safe. That might be TB’s worth of data from the videos I do for my channels and blogs.
So that might be in the next few months, but I am not sure. The wife isn’t too happy about all my network purchases. She needs Diet Coke and Bagel money.
