Is it Possible to House Confluence or Its Home Directory on an NAS Device Instead of a Local Drive?

Yes, it's possible to set up this configuration. To do so, you must specify the network location at <confluence-install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/

However, Atlassian does not recommend installing Confluence or hosting the Confluence home directory on an NAS device because when the device or the connection to the NAS does not work as expected, Confluence cannot function correctly and you risk potential data corruption.

On Windows operating systems you will need to map your network share as a network drive because Tomcat does not work with the slashes ("\\") present in the network share name.
