I have a late 2012 Mac Mini that runs perfectly. I added an SSD to use as the boot drive about a year ago. I primarily use my Mac Mini as a Plex Server. I had all of my movie files on an external Lacie drive that crashed and is now unrecoverable. This has made me realize the need for a drive that has some backup capabilities. My use case is primarily to use Plex Media Server. I've been in the rabbit hole reading threads and looking at solutions. The solutions I've found are: 1. NAS: Was looking into the Synology 918+ 2. DAS: Drobo? 3. External HDD in an Enclosure In terms of backups, I'd like whatever solution I go with to do the following: Backup Media Library Do Time Machine backups of my rMB automatically over Wi-Fi Ability to be accessed remotely In doing research on the Synology, it seems like a great solution. I'm just wondering if it is overkill since I wouldn't be using the transcoder on it. Thanks in advance!
