A basic introduction to Network Attached Storage

The WD My Book Duo offers up to 12TB of storage space and gives fast performance, but CNET editor Dong Ngo doesn’t need one. Turns out, he has his own personal storage device, so much better that it’s scary!

    "I actually can" is backwards Engrish. Correct English is "I can actually". Don't learn English from someone in North America as they do not seam to grasp this.

    You dont need this since you store most of your data in your head? Tell me, how do you store an unwatched movie in your head? Do you know the data people store in a drive and data store in the head are fundamentally different?
    Hence, I dont see the point of saying that line other then being supercilious.

    Duo encrypts the drives and if the case dies you have to get another duo case to read the discs or crack the encryption. What a great idea for them, but s**te for the user. I bought one and WD just lost me forever.

    Fantastic review! You are the only reviewer that talked about the power settings for when the PC is on/off!

    I have a massive problem with my 2TB WD MyBook and the WD Smartware that is somehow written on the USB Controller so I can't delete it. It causes problems with my Linux TV Box I run LibreElec on. Does this HDD enclosure have that same virtual drive installed on it's controller?
