Hi all

I am looking to buy a new network storage drive but I am not sure which one to get. I have listed my two favorites so far below. They are fairly similar but have a few differences. For example, the Maxtor looks to be easier to install but the NetDisk is much more secure. I just had a few questions before I pick one to buy. How important is it that the drive is secure? Are networked drives easy to hack into (I would have this plugged into a wireless network)? Does anyone have any experience with either one of these drives or if not do you have experience with a good drive that you would recommend? Thanks for your help. :thumbsup:

I do not have any exposer to the driver you have listed. I chose a different option. I use an old computer and set it up and a poor mans server. I enable all of the standard security, antivirus, antispyware, software firewall,.. I am running Windows 2000 Pro and set it to share a drive. I have 3 EIDE drive in one and the other is a real server. It is cheap and highly expandable.
