    Turn USB RAID enclosure into backup solution; RAID or JBOD?

    Been juggling a few different backup solutions in my home, limping by on scattered USB drives and an old Time Capsule that we've outgrown. Don't want to spend the money on a full NAS like a QNAP, thought it might be cheaper to trick out an old USB3 RAID enclosure to handle Time Machine backups...

    How to attach encrypted HFS+ drives to a network?

    I know that people have asked this sort of question before, but I've always found it geared specifically for their own equipment, rather than in a general sense.
