I have a similar setup up, but all my data is stored on a 2TB NAS from Buffalo. It has two 1TB drives, one mirrors the other. I've redirected my Documents, Music and Video folders from my desktop...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Now with More Integration Commented on: 40 weeks ago (January 22, 2014)

Metro apps running inside a window on the desktop is a great idea, but I'm wondering how that experience will be when the apps are designed to run full screen? Will this add additional complexity...

Those apps don't port, they simply go to the web. Look at Adobe's Creative Cloud. Through it, Photoshop runs on a Surface RT or Surface 2 just fine. That's how you move away from the desktop.

Windows Phone 8 Update 3: Driving Mode Commented on: 1 year ago (October 15, 2013)

I don't get it.
