Hi everyone. I am ready to get a NAS after only using an external hard drive to back up files the last few years.
My concern is whether or not a freeNAS build would be too involved for an average user. I have built gaming PCs but am only just now developing an interest in open source software, data security, and privacy.
Do you see a FreeNAS build as a good starting point for someone to learn more about computers and the systems available on them? If it is easy to get in over your head with setup and upkeep I may go with Synology while learning more elsewhere.
Thanks for the help everyone.
