Hmm, interesting. Might save some grief with windows always kicking the green ones out of a mirror and telling me its at risk every second week or so.

Interesting, thanks. I have been reading up on NAS options recently, as I will be putting one as part of my network overhaul in a few months. Hopefully, pricing will be back to its pre-flooding trajectory by then.
