My wife’s boss has been told she has to spend money. Wish I had that problem ! Going to now do away with all the patched up stuff and start with the following. A Spectrum Modem and Router. Her kid has a Windows computer that will go on the network for Internet access. I need to buy a couple of Middle of the road computers 16GB of Ram and Decent hard drives. I prefer Mechanical Hard drives over SSD because I heard that is a question of how long you can rewrite over a sector before it wares out. Thoughts on that please. Going to stay with Win 10 because all the programs are currently set up for it. I need a program that will allow me to save a file to local HD and Goggle Cloud at same time from 3 different computers. As we are working in the program Word, Excel, Adobe. I don’t do “backups” in the traditional sense. Been doing computers since DOS 3 and just like clean files that I can read with any computer. Need to have a clean copy or “backup” of email.
My files at home have been to a WD network server and now a Synology Server. The Work file copies are to a WD storage device connected to USB port. Slow but simple.
Putting a switch in the system and hooking two computers to it, no problem. A program for file saving, haven’t got a clue. Also need some help in adding a bridge router in the system that will work with Spectrum. That will be 100′ away in another building. I will take one of the current computers and connect it as an access port. I have this setup in Apple with their routers and Mac Mini and it works great
Here is areal life scenario: My wife takes an order types it up. She than goes to the shop to make the order. She can access the file through the old computer and bridge router if needed, Saving any changes. She goes home and there is a question. She can access Goggle cloud to resolve the problem. Would be nice if she could save that file but not a show stopper.
If I’m in the wrong forum, please transfer to a better one or breakup this request. Thanks Charles
