I am an Online Future Commodity Broker, where all of my clients trades with me and for there daily account information they simply log-in to my server. I have created User ID and Password for every client. OS is win XP SP2 and using zFTP server for connectivity to clients. Client either connectes via Local Network (Wi-Fi) in some limited zone or thorugh Internet. I am using DSL connection with Linksys Broadband Firewall Router for directing FTP request to the FTP server.
Now I am thinking to use a Network HDD for keeping clients files. Is it possible like - I assign an IP address to Network HDD and connects it to my Switch, which in turn linked to my entire network with Router and Wi-Fi. Is it possible to install the FTP server on this Network HDD ? If I Shutdown all the PC's / Server in my network but keeps wi-Fi and Router on then will it possible for clients to get connectivity to this Network HDD (having FTP server installed) and download there files ?
Is there any such type of solution available ? If yes can u help me in deciding which Network HDD I should buy for such purpose.
Thanks for helping.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
