I have a reasonable spec'd xp pc running 24/7 for my weather station and am wondering if I can also use it for more.
I have a 1TB drive and a 500GB drive full of pictures documents etc that I'd like to be able to access downstairs from my laptop and to save/view photos to easily.
Is there a easy way to either make that xp a server and access the files cheaply, quickly and easily? do I need to make it a NAS drive - if so what are the benefits?
Many thanks for your help
