Windows 7: NAS with Windows 7

NAS with Windows 7

Is it possible to have a NAS homeserver made with Win7? I found FreeNAS and others, but I didn't find anything with Win7.
FreeNAS fine, but put an USB printer on it is terrible!

Hello,

You may experiment with Nas4Free. Have you tried using the Homegroup and enable Media Streaming?

A stand alone or hardware NAS provides additional functionality in regards to data protection and redundancy using RAID if you are concerned about the speed rate.

Hope this helps.

I have bad experience with Linux and printers: hard to find drivers, for example. Drivers hard to install. That's it
