Please let me know if you ar using any NAS, or SAN's with Vista and what your experiences are?
Most NAS products use a flavour of Linux as their operating system, so when you install a hard drive into the NAS, it has to partition the drive for the Linux OS, so you loose any data that was previously on itQuick thread hijack here....
Does anyone know if the SC101 will accept hard drives with data on already, or do you have to format them before you can use them?
I'm about to build an HTPC and this would suit me down to the ground if I can put my existing HDDs in it and access then across the network, but not if I have to wipe them 1st.
All file transfers seem to be slower in Vista than XP...even copying files between two drives in the same PC. There's quite a lot of discussion on the issue in other forums, not sure if there's a solid explanation for it yet.Why would file transfer be slower than in XP?
That's because it's not a proper NAS!The reason I ask, is because I wanted to get my old SC101 working, but found out that currently Netgear do not support Vista with this product
Just out of interest, which NAS have you chosen to nearly orderSC101 is now listed on a certain bidding site. Another (proper NAS) is nearly on order.
