Hi. Any insight is appreciated. Wanting a NAS option mainly for storing and safe keeping of pictures and home videos. Not using it for plex or anything like that. Would like to be able to upload pics/vids from phone, and remotely (& quickly) view those pics/vids when away from home network. Ideally, we would be able to organize and create albums as needed.

Thank you
