I'm managing a small company with about 15 PC's, they use Dropbox to store all their data. I have Dropbox downloaded onto a regular PC and shared it on the network, it's OK but i want to upgrade to something more stable like a NAS, the PC sometimes shuts down / BSOD etc... What would be a good way forward without running a full on server (because of costs). Thanks

Hi :welcome: to BC,

 

 

I have some Synology NAS at my work, besides several other applications they have one that works similar to Dropbox called Cloud Station that stores the data on the NAS.

 

Synology have a live Demo to play with the OS...

One major issue you have bringing it in house is the data is no longer stored off site.

whatever you decide make sure to backup your data.

 

I have nas's at home and they are all mirrored.  Because I care about my data and don't want to lose it if one drive dies.

Yes the data should also be stored off-site we can/should continue to use Dropbox or any other backup service.
