PINE64 to allow use of SATA disk on network/FTP
(11-12-2019, 01:26 AM)mwelbourne Wrote: Hi. I'm looking for a low cost way of being able to access an 2TB SATA drive across my home network and hopefully the internet. I was looking at using a Raspberry Pi but someone has suggested using a PINE64 because it should be easier to connect the drive. I'm totally new to PINE64, I'd not heard of it until a few days ago.

The drive won't ever be accessed that often, it just seems like a better solution with more access that just having inside a PC.

So, my current thinking is to get a PINE64, probably the 2GB verison, a decent SD card, install openmedia vault, attach the drive to the board and connect the board to my wifi router.

Does this sound like a good plan?

If I'm attaching a SATA drive then I think I can't use and enclosed case?

The Rock64 isn't much more and has USB3 and a bit faster and what not, and it's the same form factor as the rpi3B so plenty of case options available. The only board with a sata option is the rockpro64 and the PCIe sata board.

In any case emmc is faster and I'd do that rather than sdcard...
