i would like to access it on my other pc's as shared storage for tranferring files between them (and possibly access it on the laptop itself
using an 8 port netgear gigabit switch (the switch will not be plugged into a router because i dont have ethernet where my pc's are, so simultaneously being able to use the nas and wifi would be nice

i am going to use the vm on my laptop which has an i3-7100U, and 8gb ddr4 Ram

if needed here is the info https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-15-bs000-laptop-pc/15551412/model/16901643?sku=1KV13UA

Just to share files between the two, you don't need any VM or 'NAS'.

A simple shared folder one one or the other, and both systems can see that folder.

PC#1 - Shared folder, and access given to 'Everyone'
PC#2 - Mapped drive letter to that location. I generally use the drive letter S for this.

Both systems can read/write to that space.

Ive been using HyperV instead of VirtualBox for my servers, but yeah, easily done but unless youre running a full VM environment, prob not much point.
