I am changing my computer setup and wondered if something was possible.
Is it possible to have a Raspberry Pi that acts as file storage / backup / FTP server.
I have a Windows 8.1 Desktop PC and a Macbook Pro. I want to hook up an external (powered) HDD up to it and use it to store my programming work and backups so that my PC and my Mac can access its data and backup to it from anywhere.
So, it needs to be able to mount the drive automatically, back itself up once a week, share my 2 drive partitions over the local network to PCs and Macs, Allow Macs to use one of the partitions as a Time Machine backup location, Allow PCs to backup to that same partition and also share the drive over FTP so that I can access my programming work when I'm at my workplace.
Is this possible and if it is, how easy is it to do?
