Mods, not sure this is the right part of the forum so please move it if needed.
In seven months or so I'll be headed off to college. While I will have my college laptop I wanted to leave my nettop at home and use it as a file server and backup system. I was planning on setting this up in a few months, but last night the hard disk decided to screw up and currently sounds like an aircraft taking off so I'm not running it. I'll probably be replacing the drive with a 2TB drive if I make it a NAS or a spare 150GB drive from around the house if I don't. My original plan was to use it as a place where I could drop files from my college laptop and phone and then access them from anywhere. I was thinking about using FreeNAS, but I have no experience with it and wasn't sure what exactly is possible with it. My father, who is rather experienced with Oracle, thinks I should use Oracle Webcenter. I don't really have any idea of what would work and would certainly appreciate suggestions. Thanks.
Edit: Got the name of the Oracle product right.
