    Windows 10 settings needed for NAS installation


    I am planning to install a NAS , mainly home use for backups and for streaming pictures to a TV. I have no knowledge of networking, so plan to buy a NAS which is easy to install. I read that e.g. WD My Cloud Mirror has an easy installation.

    My question is now what Windows 10 settings I have to do before I start the NAS installation. The NAS manual does not say anything about that.
    E.g. I suppose that I have to make the PC and laptops discoverable and activate that setting somewhere. Any other settings needed? Do I have to configure a Windows Home Group?

    There is nothing to setup on your computer to connect a NAS to your network. You cannot use Home Group with Samba, NFS or FTP.
