Hey Guys, Last weekend I probably had to be the most unluckiest person as far as losing everything on my hard drives. I have two computers, one with a two disk RAID & the main computer with SSD for programmes and SSD Hybrid for storage. I had to format the storage drive so I backed up everything to my RAID storage only to have one of those fail during backup. Sadly it is mechanical so not much hope of recovering anything and the singular drive had been partially written to and didn't recover much. Moving forward I want to review how I store my data. Not just being media but everything. I have seen it suggested in threads here to invest in NAS by Synology. That's a great idea but it is the viewing experience too. I used to have Emby server on both computers (watching with Emby classic) so that I could have the one for the viewing and the other for stuff that was still downloading. IE, I collect TV stuff until the season ends. For me it keeps it tidy and (I don't have to show all of those folders on the viewing pc)but the meta data is still being updated. I would like to move away from having two computers if possible without losing the experience. I also want to be able to use a remote control for whatever I decide to go with. I have a Samsung Smart TV but see that the software for that is still being developed. Could anyone advise what could be options for me? I am open to any new ideas. The key firstly is to have a solid storage system which I guess would be a NAS network but I don't want to spend thousands on this. Any ideas for the viewing experience will be much appreciated.
