Ximeta NDAS drive

by santy_000 / October 9, 2007 2:04 PM PDT

Hi, I Saw the editorial review of ximeta ndas drive which has received high points. It looks impressive,however; I have a few doubts -
1. the review said that it does not have media server capabilities : I would like to know what this exactly means because one of the test details provided was read/write and access time for media.
2. would i be able to remote-access the drive using a VPN (Hamachi)
thank you

Go look at a NAS next time. Save yourself some headaches. Sorry but I'll stop here.

Thank you for your response. Pls elaborate
I am not considering this for backup purposes, I just want a centralized location for all my media (have backups on DVD's and CD's). Cnet rates ximeta as having a good transfer speed (the fastest in the list).
Nas or NDAS I just want a drive from which I will be able to read/write media files (350MB - 8GB)without glitches/interruptions
I am also not bothered by the requirement to install driver software for use( the number of computers that would be accessing files stored on the drive is just one)
I would also like you to elaborate on the media serving shortcomings of Ximeta in some detail(I just dont understand what it means)

Your item 2 made it a DOA project.

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?
