I currently have an old PC that's really to become a NAS to hold all my music and feed a few Squeezeboxes; my goal is to run it headless, but I can use a monitor/mouse/keyboard to set it up if needed. The last PC server I built a year ago used VortexBox, but I didn't like it. It kept having issues, and I kept having issues logging on to it when the unit would have errors, which left me very frustrated. Right now the PC has a fresh version of Windows XP which I may use with the Squeezebox Server and remote log-in if I can find a better option.
Does anyone have an recommendations of a good and low maintenance solution I can use as I only need to store and be able to access the music; like a NAS. I am not using this as an HTPC, and would prefer to just drag and drop files onto it from my main PC after I rip of download them.
Thanks for the help!
