Network Storage
With the NETGEAR Storage Central SC101, you can plug in up to 2 IDE drives of any size and create a central storage space for all your music, video, photos, games, and files. These files and media resources are then easily accessible by all the computers on your home or small office network as a simple letter drive, from ‘My Computer’. You can start with as little as 80 GB and upgrade to 800 GB or more as required. Never worry about losing your most valuable files with advanced back-up features. Keep your personal files private from other network users if desired by placing them in secure, password-protected folders. Different drives can be created for different purposes or users on the network. You can even link multiple Storage Centrals together for additional storage capacity.

Applications for Use
Do you own a digital camera or camcorder and have lots of photos and home movies that you would like to back-up and store securely? The SC101 enables you to store and back-up precious digital photos and home movies of weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions and create a drive to share your memorable family moments to all the computers on your home network. Do you have private financial information or commercial files that you would like to store and back up? The SC101 includes back-up software, allowing you to safeguard any valuable files by keeping real-time duplicate copies, automatically and effortlessly. Is your computer or laptop slowing down because it is weighed down with lots of files, digital music, photos and video? Transfer all this data on to an SC101 and give your computer or laptop a new lease of life!
