Hello Comelius,
I would not have thought that a joggler was reliable enough for a file
server, unless you are doing it just for the challenge.  My joggler often
needs a reboot or just crashes

All I can add is that if you want a quiet file server, you could get an Acer
Revo 3610 - still some available at less than £200 at ebuyer:

I would be interested to hear if someone does manage to get a stable joggler
that is good enough for a file server though... and of course how you did it

Thank you.
