I am completely new to any kind of NAS or raid setup. I have done a bit of "shopping" around for an easy to manage solution to help eliminate the loss of my data. I feel that my search is over now. FreeNAS seams to have all of the features that I need ready go out of the box. My hello/introduction is more of a plea to forgive my noobness for the inevitable "stupid" questions that I will be asking. It is also a pledge to use the search function as much as possible. It is just hard to search for something when you don't know the terminology for what you are searching for. LOL. Thanks in advance for the tolerance, patience, and help I am sure to revive. OK that is the end of my butt kissing.
