    I've been looking into building a super cheap home server system to run a few different things off of. One of these is a NAS. I know you can map a network drive and share files over the network within Windows, but to what extent? I'm not familiar with how I would do this. Would you recommend this for simple file sharing? I won't even have more than 3 clients transferring photos at one time, pretty minimal stuff. Do I need an entirely separate OS like FreeNAS or will the functionality within Windows work ok?
