Haven't done it but assuming


Haven't done it but assuming the data is not a database (i.e. just files) and assuming the NAS drive is addressable over a UNC path then it should be just a redirect restore.

If it's a database you have to recrate an empty database in whatever the application is on the NAS drive and then do a redirected restore into that instance so it gets a bit more complex.
