I have recently purchased a NAS device the Seagate Central. I understand the concept and the whole purpose of the device but one thing has me thinking. I have most likely answered the question myself but your inputs and advice would be great on this.
Should the device be plugged in and running all the time? Obviously I know that when it is not it will not be accessible remotely. But I question this as when I came home from work, the device was still whirring around and it was rather warm which I know would be standard but to my knowledge the device had not been used all day so in a way the device is wasting power? and could lead to the device burning out a lot sooner I hope this makes sense. I was maybe thinking it would be best to disconnect late on in the evening but then have it back on in the morning. Your ideas on this would be fantastic!
