Build a Network Attached Storage with Raspberry Pi and Nextcloud | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi @nextclouders

In the first of a three-part series, Manuel Dewald for opensource.com walks through the hardware and software recommendations, as well as the USB drive/s configuration, that will be used to setup a homemade NAS (using the Pi) — the Nextcloud interface looks really nice, so I’m looking forward to part 3 of the series when Manuel shares their thoughts on that process and what configuration they recommend. For now here’s part 1:

Follow these step-by-step instructions to build your own Raspberry Pi-based network attached storage system.

In this three-part series, I’ll explain how to set up a simple, useful NAS (network attached storage) system. I use this kind of setup to store my files on a central system, creating incremental backups automatically every night. To mount the disk on devices that are located in the same network, NFS is installed. To access files offline and share them with friends, I use Nextcloud.

This article will cover the basic setup of software and hardware to mount the data disk on a remote device. In the second article, I will discuss a backup strategy and set up a cron job to create daily backups. In the third and last article, we will install Nextcloud, a tool for easy file access to devices synced offline as well as online using a web interface. It supports multiple users and public file-sharing so you can share pictures with friends, for example, by sending a password-protected link.
