I'm looking into a NAS system in order to backup my mac, boot windows, and possibly host a personal website at some point. Currently i'm in a dorm where access to the router is impossible, however next year i will be living in an apartment. So i've been thinking about buying a NAS now and using it as an external hard drive via a hardware connection for the time left in my dorm. Is this a possible route? Can i use the Synology DS214+ as a hard wired hard drive? If so how, ethernet or usb?
