How to add NAS (Network Attached Storage) Device to your computer?

NAS (Network Attached Storage) provides a small, convenient, compact storage device that is much cheaper to run than a single PC let alone a whole bunch of them! Many NAS devices also have an integral print server facility allowing easy on demand access for all to a common printer.

Nowadays, most home users have more than a single home computer, with some going as high as 3 or 4 home machines, all of which share the same Internet connection via a router, which also acts as gateway. However, depending on the size of the network, moving files from one computer to another might be a bit difficult, especially if not all of the computing systems connected to the network are actually switched on at any given moment. For this reason, it's a very good idea to add to your network a storage unit, typically known as a NAS (network-attached storage system).
