comment Bottleneck when running Linux from USB
What does the NAS do except backup and serving files? Updates of course, but that won't be the problem. Try it! And use a good USB stick, not the cheapest. Make sure it performs well on speed, look for reviews on Amazon or elsewhere.

comment Is Tar a suitable archiving solution for numerous backups of data from the same folder?
Why do you want to limit yourself to tar? Especially on Windows I would prefer something else.

comment PC always shutdown consistently after 2-3 hours
So you say you have installed Windows 7 next to Linux Mint, and this happens with both systems? Make that more clear in your question! This is a hardware problem, and I would guess the CPU is the culprit. Either in Mint or W7, try to log CPU temperature, or better log all temperatures and see if that tells you anything.

comment Connection refused for port 80 in VirtualBox. But only for CentOS VM
Have you started Apache on Centos? It doesn't automatically start after installation like with Ubuntu. I use Virtualbox a lot, and usually install a desktop VM instead of the server version if it's for local use only. It gives the same functionality, and a lot more convenience. You can use Firefox in the VM itself, as well as all the other GUI tools.

comment Public ip address showing in Hong Kong
Contact Google about this. They will reply to such a report and probably fix it, if the problem is on their side, which is likely.
