For drivepool want more storage.
I have in my Windows 8.1 Windows Media Sever / Plex
1 x SSD
1 x Blu-ray
4 x 6TB WD Red
3 x 8TB Seagate Archive
1 x 3 TB Hitachi
1 x Asmedia 1061 Controler Card
3 x Tuner Cards
I need more storage SATA drives. I have spare random ones and plan to buy some more WD Reds
What is good for external that will work reliably With DrivePool and Scanner.
I have had no luck with Scanner and External USB and getting any SMART and even tried Advanced settings in Scanner but had computer lock up. Cheap temporary no name USB bay keeps disconnecting every few weeks and I want it gone.
Is eSata an option?
If suggesting other technology I will need hand holding as I don't understand SAS etc and don't have an enterprise budget but could spend up to AUD $500 or maybe more if robust.
I am in Australia
This is all I could easily find that takes greater than 4 TB hard drives readily available.
This is the only Case that seemed to have eSata I could easily find but some say power supply unreliable
I assume there would also be reliable enterprise second hand equipment based on some of the builds I see here on the forums.
