I have wanted to set up a NAS for ages. I recently moved house and had to buy a new fibre modem/router. It has two USB 3.0 ports, and it'll be switched on all the time, so I figured it might be a low cost, low power way to get my NAS going.
I want my NAS to be RAID 1, so I was looking at enclosures like the ones suggested here and here. However, I'm a bit nervous about compatibility issues between the USB enclosure and the router. Do devices like these always work nicely together these days?
If I were plugging the enclosure into my PC, then I would feel confident that I could sort out any driver issues. But with the router's OS, I pretty much have to hope it just works, else I'm stuffed.
Thanks for any tips or suggestions!
