One good use of a NAS device is to store user data such as documents, spreadsheets, etc. Using Windows 2000's Active Directory services, group policy objects can be defined to redirect the "My Documents" folder from a workstation to a NAS server. The NAS allows us to take periodic snapshot images of these documents throughout the day and restore documents as needed by end users.
