    hi everyone,

    I'm looking for a network harddrive that is accesible from the internet. So that i can acces my files from every pc that is connected to the internet. I know Lacie got an expensive solution for it with their ""Ethernet Disk". But I'm looking for an cheaper solution. About the space, I would like to have around 250 GB op storage space.

    By the way, I also saw the "ethernet disk mini" from lacie's site but i couldn;t make sure if that one is also accesible from the internet, so if anyone know this i would be very thankful!

    My apologies for my bad English, i'm from a non-english country:eek:

    I converted my old PC to a in house network storage server with 1tb of HD space.

    What else would a PC be good for?:)

    Your best bet might be getting an external hard drive for your computer, and then leaving your computer on with FTP/AFP/SMB access on, and the appropriate ports open on your firewall. That would give you the most flexibility with configuring the hard drive.

    You could get a portable drive that you could take with you when you travel...which ultimately would be even more flexible than hosting your files at home...but if you don't want to carry anything, and you don't have another computer to host your files. you are pretty much either going to have to spend quite a bit of money, or go without.

    hmm, so that ethernet disk mini from lacie isn't going to work also?
