Jim >>> Thanks for your reply. I'm just wanting a server to serve files
(documents, images, and media) to our various machines at home on our
LAN, and to run our music server and hold its library. (No plans to
stream video.) As you see, I don't know a lot about setting up a server
to do just this, so your point about not spinning down the discs is
helpful (and I assume you're saying that instant access is more
important than avoiding wear?)
I don't know how essential upnp is - any advice? But I'm a bit
surprised that automatic updating needs to be added - is that right?
