My book-shelf NAS

Hello everybody!

This is my first post, and I would like to say that I`m glad to be here. I am a Nas4Free/BSD noob , but I`m learning. Have a small, silent embedded Nas4Free with Asus J1800I-C board, 2GB of RAM (planing to add some more), 120GB SSD and 1TB 2,5" HDD for storage. Everything is packed in a small (the smallest one I could find) LC Power LC-1350mi case with external 75W power supply. It stands on the book shelf, discretely, totally silent, with no single fan. Storage capacity is quite enough at this time, serving few PC`s at my home for multimedia purposes. Perhaps, in the future, I`ll replace 1TB HDD with 2TB one, also 2,5".
I was amazed with simplicity of Nas4Free, which made me to decide on favor of it.

That's a pretty cool setup, Vasiliy. I would go for 2TB HDD but if you say 1TB is enough for you r needs, I believe ya. How did you get into Nas4Free btw?

Thanks. Yes, my plan is to go for 2TB 2.5" HDD in near future, as soon as my current 1TB disk become small.
I`ve heard for Nas4Free some years ago, after it separated from FreeNAS. I was looking for freeware NAS solution. FreeNAS is too enterprise for my taste/needs. Tried OMV, but it turned out too fancy and a bit complicated setup for a newbe like me. Nas4FREE is (for me at least) rock-stable, simple solution.
