    I have trolled the forums for 2 yrs without posting and I am finally turning to the Mac world. Specifically for the tools that are available for photography and ease of syncing all i devices to work as one. I could not find any threads about pc and mac workign together, I may have been usign the wrong key words.

    So my delima, I have found many topics about using a NAS and I am set and ready to buy a Synology DS1511+.

    My question is can Mac files and PC files coexist on the NAS? Or do I have to divide storage accordingly?

    Since a NAS will be NFS/CIFS or some other "network" file system, then they can co-exist. Should not be a problem. I have a PC Desktop machine and share a directory out that my Mac accesses without problems.

    awesome thanks guys... my goal is to kill the pc slowly. the more and more i look into Macs the more I want to spend. 1st the guts were impressing me than I started looking into the software and I have been sold. Now it's just how big of a hole I want to burn into my wallet
