Thank you for the NAS info.  I'm a small production company and I'm using an Asustor Drivestor 2 Pro AS3302T and it's working well.  I mainly use it for my library and other footage which I need to access outside of my office.   I know how to upload and download from the NAS, but I was wondering about software which will allow me to edit from my NAS on the road.  Something similar to LucidLink.  Any ideas.

Hello, special software is not required to edit your files while you're on the road.  As long as the NAS and your computer have internet access, you can access the data on drive.  Depending on the file type, you may want to transfer the data to your computer first to edit as opposed to editing directly off of the NAS as you may experience reduced performance.
