[filmscanners] Re: Trying to track down a problem



You can build a linux PC for storage. Linux is about as immune as it
gets to viruses.  If you use opensuse, it can handle the Nvidia and
Silicon Image software raid chips found on many motherboards.   You need
to run SMB on the linux box so that windows can access the files.

Most if not all of the net attached storage boxes are just a stripped
down version of linux running SMB.

FWIW, I've been running AVAST antivirus. It is free, but unlike AVG, you
don't have to keep loading a new free version. Just register the
software. Once a year, you need to reply to a request to register, but
it is very simple.
