How can I setup an internal 3.5" SATA hard disk, with existing data on an ext4 partition, so that I am able to access the data on WLAN? What product should I be looking for to turn the bare drive into some sort of NAS?
Background: my desktop machine has recently given up the ghost, I think the motherboard has finally died after many years of faithful service. I am not in a position to buy new RAM / CPU / motherboard and the old one is probably too old to replace (I was running a Core 2 Duo on Gigabyte EP-35).
I am thinking I can get by with just my laptop for a few months, but I do need access to the data on the hard drives which were in the desktop machine. It is a pair of WD green 3.5" sata drives, one 2TB and one 3TB. I want to avoid having to reformat the drives if at all possible.
