Looking for ideas for small NAS


Recommended Posts

I'd like to put together a x86/x64 1-bay NAS with a 10TB 3.5" hard drive and drop it off at a friend's location as a remote NAS backup target but the SFF/Thin-Client PCs I see are typically designed for 2.5" drives. Maybe I haven't looked hard enough and someone can suggest devices.


An alternative would be to hang a USB 3.0 drive off a power sipping thin client running Xpenology which would look a little kudgey. I've found the instructions to have DSM use USB drives as internal drives but is this a bad idea?

I found a post that talks about compiling a driver for the RTL8125 for the 1.04b DS918+ loader.

there is a working r8125 driver already in my extra.lzma, there might be very few newer cards that need a newer driver (possible for 918+) but the chip on that odroid is older for sure
