Calibre program on PC, libraries on a NAS

Hi,

I'm aware that you warned against running the Calibre program on a network drive or a NAS.

What I would like to do is to keep the actual program on my PC, but to store the libraries on a NAS (because of space and RAID). My NAS is configured to be on my N-drive.

Will this cause any problems that I should be aware of? What about the alternative: installing the portable version on a NAS and working from (and within) there?

I'm looking forward to your answers.

Kind regards,
Manja

Possible
Calibre is transactional,
any network delays can corrupt the sync between the what the DB part has and what the (book) file IS.
Some folk get away doing this on a NAS.
Some keep the DB local and just the book folders on the NAS

Personally, I just cloned my existing drive onto a bigger HD, and put it in my PC
Many mid-tower PC's can hold a second drive inside. Some have an external eSATA port, so speed does not suffer
