    I was thinking about picking up a Netgear SC101, because refurb units are available for really cheap. The primary purpose is not backup, but rather to store files that I don't need to access very often and media files to free up space on my MacBook Pro's hard drive. However, according to the info on it, Macs are not supported. My question is, can I set it up using Boot Camp or Fusion and then afterwards access the files over the network using OSX?

    I also was looking at this a few months ago. I don't really see a reason why it wouldn't work, but you most likely need a pc to setup the ip address for the unit. Then you should be able to connect to it on the network through ip address.

    I looked a little more into it and apparently, the SC 101 is SAN, not NAS. As a result, it requires drivers to be used. As of a year ago, OSX drivers were supposed to be in the works, but nothing's come of it yet. That's too bad, I was hoping to get some cheap network storage since I have a couple of hard drivers just sitting around collecting dust.
