While looking into alternatives for Dropbox I explored the idea of a NAS. It would be easy to hook up the NAS to a broadband connection and have the users access the files.

- The data needs to be encrypted on the NAS itself (in case it gets stolen).
- The connection to the NAS needs to be secure (VPN?).
- The drive needs to appear as a drive under windows (so no https).

Any ideas? Thanks in advance, I can't seem to find the final solution!
