Is it time for you to up your network game? If so, THIS is the episode for you!
 
Padre and Jason Howell take a look at some of the basic features of a Synology Network Attached Storage box in the first of several episodes about expanding your networking horizons. Learn how to automatically backup all the data on ALL the computers in your network, then learn about creating your own cloud, away from prying eyes. It's all coming up... on "Know How"!
 
Dropbox... but on your own personal cloud
