[Discuss] NAS: encryption

My music collection is about 150GB.  I like to keep 3 copies of everything so there?s 450GB.  I don?t keep a copy offsite in the cloud just because of it?s size.  I keep one copy on a USB drive in a fire proof safe.  Cheaper and more easily accessible than the cloud, at least for me.  Bittorrent Sync keeps my boxes synchronized.

I think for video and audio, local storage makes more sense for the technically savvy.  I?ve never lost a significant amount of data.

The one who?s just a simple rsync user, no home NAS here.
