That is what I figured. I generally have a decent idea of what to do and how to do it. But I'm certainly still a novice. I say FileCloud because it's an actual service and I'm not just referencing any type of NAS software. My plan is to run ubuntu and run the VPN and FileCloud in docker containers. If an i7 4790 is more than enough though I'm definitely going that route since it's just easier and cheaper to maintain. I just didn't want to run the risk of not having enough power for it. Thank you for the help!
My apologies i was ignorant to FileCloud be an exsisting thing.
But yeah all should run very light and that 4790 should be more then enough. (im guessing, still not know FileCloud )

I'm looking to get max storage however so I need extra drive bays... might just use an external drive though
You can get pretty large drives already, might be worth it since less drives less power usage.
(And yes my NAS is using to much power with 7x4TB drives in it, and also weighs a bleeping tonne. (so yeah thats 220W+ constantly on idle)
(i would adve NOT to go external, you would just introduce another point of failure. (The SATA to USB controller in this case).
