I currently have all my music on a Dell laptop using JRiver MC (see sig ), I`m beginning to run out of space and wonder if NAS is the way to go ?
I want to increase storage space and also have some sort of automatic backup in case of disaster (RAID ? ) I do backup my files to an external HD but prob not as regularly as I should ! Now if I got a NAS drive am I right in thinking that I would copy all my music to the NAS and then point Jriver at the folder on the NAS ? I would have no problem using the laptop as a "front end " but I also have a Nexus 7 with Gizmo which is used as a remote for Jriver, can this be used directly with the NAS to bypass the laptop ?
Thanks in advance for any advice and please be gentle as I`ve no experience with NAS or similar!
