comment How does the guest OS of VirtualBox get a valid dynamic IP address?
Maybe you're on a different network via Wifi? If the network was setup via cable first, then wifi might fail.

comment Trying To Run a VM On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Have you installed more Virtualbox VMs on this machine? Have you tried to install a second VM? You could delete (or better rename) the .virtualbox folders in your home folder and start over. Please give more info about what you tried to fix this!

comment Bottleneck when running Linux from USB
You want to run Owncloud. The device may be sold as a NAS, it may be called a NAS, but without enough RAM it won't run Owncloud from memory. You could set the swap to write to the HDD, but I don't know how often that will cause the disks to startup during night. How about using a small external SSD?

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.
