    Hi folks,
    After recently buying a laptop I now have a redundant PC and thinking about using it as a home server/plex server and a place to download my NZB's to.
    Is it possible to use the PC for this? Its running Windows 10 Pro on it.
    Any help much appreciated.

    I dont see why not, you can setup users on it if you want to do remote desktop login etc, ideally if you have two hard drives in it just share the second one and set up the required folders

    I run an old server. Quad core Xeon. Running windows 10 and plex serving. Works great. Using an old server keeps the electric costs down as I would expect if you want PLEX serving it would be on 24/7. Mine pulls 26 watts of power so is low power low cost. I also use Teamviewer so i can remote in from my phone at any time if needed. Very useful and free.

    would work a lot better if you put Ubuntu server on it
