Good choice with the NAS - have been using a QNAP 4-bay for several years and am about to add another unit. I can then replicate from one to the other for increased data security

thanks for all the great videos btw - really useful for an amateur part-time snapper like me

but I would advise getting the NAS into a rack as soon as you can - even if its just a basic half height 19" rack

It looks better, but really its about the safety of your data - the reason you went for the NAS in the first place

In a rack, the NAS

can't fall off of anything
can't be knocked or in any other way physically easily damaged
is less likely to have the power lead knocked out/fall out while it is running
can be locked away/secured

Best Regards
