I know what i'm doing just more or less asking for other idea's/opinions
revengous - Good point didn't think of that, guess I could run a server from the office and use logmein or something like that to access data remotely

One pc could be fitted with a second hdd for file serving, then use basic windows sharing and just map network drives to each pc manually. You can setup a basic RPD to the pc acting as a "server" but it will allow only one RDP session. You can use a reg hack to change the port number for each pc used for the RPD session. So all the user would have to do is login from home/elsewhere remotely using Microsofts inbuilt RDP, your router can redirect the port to the ip of each pc.
