There are heat issues with these units....so don't run them 24/7. It's best to only use them as needed.

If you need 24/7 accessibility, look into turning a small older tower style computer into a samba server...then you can add extra capacity for very little, so long as you have free IDE ports, or SCSI if you go that route.

As for "locking" someone out...did they buy some fancy-pants unit with network access, or just a simple USB or Firewire unit?

I have one, but I only use it for backing up my important financial data and such. It's turned off as soon as I am done using it.
