RLY, id like to know if there is a word for this. i see people who are total security buffs, and have backups CONSTANTLY... but ive seen an interesting method, where people use a small 35gb HDD or, now, more commonly an SSD for the OS, and then use an external server for their applications. things are installed and used as if they are right on the computer, but the actual location is somewhere else entirely. obviously this is generally going to be a rather slow process unless you are on a fiber optic network... but on your OWN network, not having to query an IP adress over the internet, cutting out relay time, could i pull this off by sharing a primary drive on the server with the network, and using the windows reg make it my primary install location?
im curious to hear CONSTRUCTIVE thoughts... i know there are likely better methods, and im sure theres a thousand things people could point out are wrong with this method, but it intrigues me, so maybe some of you who know more about it, can humor me, and edumicate me a little more on it.
