Building your own network-attached storage (NAS) server is an easy process that involves building what is essentially a PC. There’s a strong choice of free and open source software to run on the NAS and OpenMediaVault is one fine example. Today, we’re looking at what’s new in version 6.3.12.

How to install this OpenMediaVault update
Installing the latest version of OpenMediaVault on your DIY NAS couldn’t be easier. Follow these steps and you’ll be installing the latest release in no time at all:
