Thanks for quick response.  I had seen through this link, and some more.  
Sorry, I did not mention it in my mail.   However, they talk about running a 
file server connected to network.  Whereas, the network storage drives (from 
Seagate or Western Digital) connect to the router - all the hardware is 
contained in the disk enclosure itself.  I was wondering if I can use the 
same.

Looks like I need to use a old desktop as file server if I want to be certain 
about storing and accessing my data from any connected devices.

Thanks once again for the help.
