Good question, but I think you've just let the cat loose amongst the pigeons on this one because it's like the tab vs spaces debate.

Me personally ( my personal PC is the same as my work PC & bought about the same time about 2 years ago), I reboot my work PC once a week and shutdown my home PC each night. Both are still running, and touch wood, will continue to do so without an issue.

My home NAS has been running since 2012* and only get shuts down when there's a power outage.

Only way to answer your question if someone has two NAS devices in which the usage is the same, but one gets shutdown and the other doesn't. Anyone with time & money to try this? Laugh | :laugh:



*just realised I should probably look at upgrading it before it dies
