We are looking at setting up a Windows 10 Storage Space system for our Lightroom Images.
We now have two machines with Lightroom that have external hard drives for images. They are connected by a fast (gigabyte) network. My wife's machine has her images and catalog and a backup of my images. Mine has my images and catalog and her backup.
The Stage Space would be a "box" running windows 10 with three or more 4 TB drives for a NAS storage system. A problem I can foresee is Lightroom can't work with files over a network. (e.g., From my machine, I can't edit files on the wife's machine, but only those in drives on mine.)
Friends have a Synology DS1515 RAID system a on a wireless network and each of them can edit files directly on the RAID drives.
Is there a way to "configure" Windows Storage Space so we both edit files on it?

I don't know why you say this, it simply isn't true, your photos can be on a network drive and Lightroom works properly.
The photos can be located on a network drive.
The Lightroom catalog needs to be located on a local drive (internal or external).
The network storage would be a great place to store the catalog backup files.
