I love a bit of tech writing and reviewing so it was a pleasure to do some more review work for T3.com. In this piece I highlight the best NAS drives (Network Attached Storage) on the market. These beauties do a lot more than store files like a traditional hard drive – they are a personal cloud service and media server. Take a look here.
With documents, emails, songs, photos, video files and more all stored in different places on your computer, it’s no wonder that finding the exact file you want can be time-consuming and bit of a headache. Not in Windows 7, though, because the search function has been overhauled, so it’s both easier to use and faster. Microsoft knows that few of us store all of our files in one place any more, so Windows 7 can also search external hard drives, networked computers, and libraries. Sounds like a lot of search results, right? Not when you can narrow your search instantly using date, file type and so on. There are lots of reasons to love the Windows 7 search feature – you’ll be amazed at how much easier it makes your computing.
