Windows 10: Looking for NAS solution for existing USB hard drives

    Looking for NAS solution for existing USB hard drives


    I have some extra external USB 3.0 drives that I wanted to use as part of a NAS solution, so I am looking for some sort of NAS device with USB 3.0 ports where I can plug in my drives. The NAS drive doesn't necessarily need to have any onboard storage capacity, and the less money I have to spend, the better.

    Any suggestions?

    I use 2 Ethernet-connected 2TB WDC drives. My Router also has 2 USB ports on it but being a few years old they are USB 2.0. The adapters/enclosures at the bottom of this page would be my choice, available for either 2.5" Notebook drives or 3.5" Desktop drives:
