hello. I'm hoping to get some help with a network / storage solution. I'm an architect with a small studio in the house and really have little to no experience with setting up a network with a central access to my files. I currently have 3 computers with all my work files on the computer that I use daily, a mac pro. The other 2 computers are laptops, 1 is a MacBook Pro, the other is an HP laptop. These are typically used by staff during the day, or by me when I'm not in my office but in other areas of the house. One thing that is adding to my confusion is that we have to use Autocad, and therefore Windows for work. The two Macs run Fusion to accomplish this. What I would like to do is have all my files in a central location that all computers can have access to. I am also worried about losing my files so I would like to have automated backup of all my cad files. Right now all work files are in a separate drive in the Mac Pro, but with no back-up. What is the best way to network all the computers and set up an automated storage / back-up solution? Also, is there a way to set something up where I don't need to have the Mac Pro running all day and night in order to access files from the other computers? Or would I not really save any energy by having a separate server for that?
