Hi Kathy!

I don’t have access to the virtual conference, but have been looking into Synology NAS this week. I’m still not sure I understand if it will do what I need it to do.

I want something for my home that I can use wirelessly, but that acts like the external hard drive that’s dangling off my PC laptop. If I install a NAS and then map the drive to… say… the Z:\ drive, like I’ve seen online. Can I go into File Explorer and navigate to that drive and use the file folders like I’m used to?

I keep seeing the web interface and wouldn’t use it. I backup to Dropbox and it seems like the same sort of deal.

Hope that makes sense?

Kathy
