Just in the process of setting up a NAS box (Synology DS418 with four drives), and have a few questions.
It's connected to my broadband router, as is my Windows PC. Not done much other than create a user account that matches my Windows login, and a test shared folder to check Windows drive mapping (worked okay). The primary function is a fault-tolerant file server. Not too fussed about streaming media, accessing photos, etc, although some sort of remote access in a restricted form would be handy (mainly a place to occasionally dump files to).
It has defaulted to one large (11TB) volume. Is there a good reason to change that to two or more smaller volumes?
Do I need to do anything in particular to ensure that the data is protected from external scumbags, or can I assume that it's secure by default?
Can I have an area that's accessible externally (such as space for ftp access) while keeping the bulk of my data safe?
Nobody loves me but my mother... and she could be jivin' too...
