Default How To Build Your Own Network Attached Storage

If you want to use an old PC as NAS, keep in mind that it does not need to be very powerful. When acting as simply a storage medium, the computer does not need to have very much horsepower. If it can run Windows XP or a basic distro of Linux, it is powerful enough to act as NAS. Even much older Pentium 3 based systems can work as NAS. 256 MB of RAM is probably enough memory for you, too. What is more important than anything else is size of the hard drive as that will determine how much capacity this machine will have as a storage device on your network.
