Hello all. I'm half luddite on my father's side, so need some gentle help...
What I have:
WD Mybook Live 1terabyte NAS drive
Ancient Dell XPS m1330 laptop - Window Vista, 160gb HD.
Sonos, Denon AVR, Sony BDP S760 and Sony 40w4500 LCD (not overly smart telly) and a Samsung Freesat HDR (bit smart, but not nearly smart enough), and Nexus 7 (2013)
My main issue is - the Dell is entirely full to bursting, there's no space on the HD. What I would ideally like to do is set up my system so that all new downloads bypass the Dell HDD and go straight onto the NAS drive, and for them to be available easily and wirelessly on the Dell (and on my Nexus 7). As things currently stand, I need to delete photos/albums or video clips in order to download even one album (the Foals better be better than Bon Ivor!). Once downloaded, I plug my Dell into the WD and manually copy the file across.
Am I asking the impossible, or is there a SIMPLE way to set up the NAS as the default memory (and perhaps even to sync phones and tablets to it also, so that they can easily draw on the NAS drive material - e.g. downloading films, as and when needed).
If anything I've written above seems confusing, happy to clarify.
