Anyone out there have a network attached storage device they'd recommend? Looking for a more robust back-up solution.
Couple years back bought a Western Digital external hard drive that completely died on us. Since then I've had a lot of, ahem, "trust issues" with these types of devices.

But I'm not sure his security issue. Maybe you can zip the documents and add a password before uploading.

Sorry for misunderstanding
network attached attached? Why not USB 2.0? I think it it fast for normal backup and restore.I don't familiar with NAS.

I bought a Mirra backup server. The firm was acquired by Seagate recently. It saved us once already when K's computer died.
Advantages: Client runs in background and makes real-time backup of files as you change them. Web access. Easy to restore data.
Disadvantages: Not a true NAS. We can't move files back/forth and have duplicate copies of files such as photos or images that are on both of our laptops. For me, it was more important to have real-time backup. I used external HDs in the past and got frustrated when I could only recover up to my most recent backup. Typically, that would be 2-3 weeks ago, so I lost all of the most recent work I had done.

Thanks for the tips. Looking for something robust that works behind the scenes.
Mofile is a great company, but not right for this use. [they're a client]
Real-time backup sounds very appealing.
I'll post when I get something.
