But that means you need to buy a NAS and 2 drives... so more expensive.

Or you could forget the NAS and fit 2 drives internally in RAID-1 if you have the space.
Thanks, this is useful info... I'll look into it. You have any good url or website describing how to do this? I'll start my goooogling...
