Ok, for most home networks you probably won't need to think extra storage. Each individual computer should be able to store its own files. However, if you have 5 or more computers under your roof you might want to rethink it. If you don't, you'll run out of storage space fast. And that could crash your whole network. NAS (network attached storage devices) are the perfect solution. This stand alone device is like a virtual file cabinet. It has a tremendous amount of storage space. It allows users to access the files. Plus, it'll keep your hard drives from having a very hard time.
