Hi
Im new on here and I would like some support please?

I run a Photography business were i do printing on site. I am looking at getting 3 PCs and a external hard drive.
The 3 PCs will be used by customers who will be looking at photos, but i dont want to by 3 hard drives for each PC.

I was thinking if i brought a Hard Drive with a LAN port and connected that to a LAN Switch and then connected the 3 PCs to the LAN switch as well, would the 3 PCs be able to open folders on the Hard Drive at the same time?
I will not have internet connection as most of the time im in a field.

Thanks

Brent

Thanks for the reply
So if i set it up like this:

This should work?

I will be able to pull all the information/folders from the NAS drive?
Or would you connect the NAS drive into the master PC via USB and then connect the master PC to the LAN Switch and PC 1,2 and 3 which will be able to see the NAS Drive?

Sorry for the questions.

Thanks
Brent
