My Western digital nas seems to have gone up in smoke so I was thinking of having a go with freenas and a laptop have have lying around.
Just got a couple of question first. The laptop only have 300gb hard drive so can I connect up and external HDD via to increase the storage of freenas. I have a couple of 500 GB external drives that i would like to use.
Also I have a back up of all the data which was on the western digital nas before it failed. How do I go about coping this data on the laptop/freenas? Is this a simple process? As the is the only back up I have and it has all music on I really dont want to mess it up and end up somehow losing it.
Thanks in advance
