    PC For Storage and Searches.

    Hi,

    As I've recently learnt to respect you all so much, I just want to solicit your advice.

    We've got a project on that needs a dedicated Machine with a Large Hard Drive Capacity (at least 250 gig) and at least 2 gig clock speed (preferably Intel) and 2 Gig Memory so it can run Vista. This is probably to much but I've got to build in some Longevity. It'll be networked and also have an independent External Hard Drive for Back Ups.

    I've got about

    Hi there

    Why go for Vista, it appears this is just for storage after all, why not use WebDAV technology . Use your budget to buy a reasonable specification PC/Server and use open source stuff like Web Disk File Storage to interface with your client...just an idea
