Drive Enclosure That appears as a LAN Share?

Sounds like a NAS box application, I know - but I don't want a NAS because I already have 6 tb of stuff on two Windiws-firmatted drives and want to avoid the hassle of migration to a NAS' RAID array.

Instead, I would like to simply move those two 3-tb drives from the PC they currently live in to a couple of LAN-present enclosures.

The greater agenda being to move my Sage server from my desktop PC to a little fanless OC sitting under my kitchen TV and freeing up the HD-200 currently there for another use.

I guess the obvious alternative is a mini or micro OC box with two 3.5" bays and an SD system drive.

Googling so far is turning up discontinued devices.

Can anybody shed some light?

Maybe check out some of the ODROID products from www.hardkernel.com to see if they have something you could use - maybe the ODROID-HC2 : Home Cloud Two would work out.
I use a C2 for my Plex client running OpenPHT and it plays everything that I throw at it will full audio pass thru too.

This is a neat device that should work for you - I have an older usb only version that I use.
You would need drive enclosure(s) but this is probably the closest you will get to your requirements. You can add the drives without formatting them too.

I pulled the trigger on an Odroid H-2 a couple days ago.

Once I establish that even I can install a distro and get it running, I'll order the second one.

I am assuming that you formatted the drive EXT4.

I got an HC2, put an OpenMediaVault system on it, tried migrating a NTFS drive to it, but no luck so far.

Re-formatted the drive as EXT4 and OMV was happy, did the share, and all that.

But when I included the share in Sage's RecordedTV sources, Sage started throwing errors - which went away when I removed the share... twice.... so I'm pretty sure that Sage was choking on it.

Seems contra-intuitive that such a big project as OpenMediaVault cannot support NTFS - so maybe there's still hope there...

I only use my Odroid C2 as a client player- not storage - so all my media is on my UnRaid server.
The Addonics device listed above was probably the better (and easier) choice for what you were trying to do.
Hope I didn't mislead you into the HC2.

However a quick look at the docs shows that NTFS is one of the file systems supported on a mounted drive!?

Yeah, the product description does sound more Plug-and-Playish.

But it's sounding more and more to me like the only thing between me and the HC working is User RCI.
