  1. Hello all........

    im looking to build a server for both a home server and blue iris server but also a cloud backup server.. is this possible with windows 2019 essentials? microsoft says i need standard due to unknown user count.. is there a way maybe with clouddrive to bypass the 25 user limit of essentials and have an unlimited number of users back up to my server? i have a decent system idea in mind but need to solve this issue.. if im not clear enough please ask any questions and ill try to answer them....

  2. I'm looking for a faster hard drive for my steam collection in my gaming rig. I'm currently using a 5400rpm wd red 3tb drive.. I'm debating going with a red pro 7200 rpm or maybe ssd but the ssd is so expensive on larger 1tb+ capacities.. so I'm thinking red pro for my drivepool on my gaming rig... any ideas would be great..

  3. 2 years later and all my reds are still going like brand new.. I have a ? about the wd red pro drives that run at 7200 rpm... what is the difference between them and comparable wd black drive .. besides the 24/7 operation... I'm curious because my 5400rpm red in my gaming rig is a lil slow and I'm debating what to get for the steam collection... 

  4. I hope its not an issue with me asking a question here for drashna... I'm running server 2012 R2 essentials trial edition and saving up for the oem licence... is it worth staying on 2012r2 or I'm debating getting 2016 essentials instead... this means full reinstall and ill need help I'm sure.. on a good note.. 2012r2 is running smooth for I think 1 year without a reload... but if I'm purchasing the os I would prefer the latest edition... any thoughts are appreciated....

  5. i tryed setting drivepool 30day trial up on my gaming rig activated the 30day trial... renamed pc to the proper name and rebooted... now Drivepool is insisting on a licence transfer from my server... why is this? please help... i wanna run the 30day eval and buy the licence in next few weeks.. is this allowed?

  6. hey hope this isnt wrong to ask here.. im loading my gaming pc and have 2 ssd and a 3TB wd red soon to be a 2nd 3TB and was debating creating a pool for the steam/origen game installs.. and my ? is can I use my 2nd ssd to boost gaming performance with the pool with the ssd optimizer plugin? and how should I go about setting this up? thank to everyone for any assistance...

  7. I may be rearranging some hardware... and am wondering if I have to get a smaller cpu formy server if I'm able to run of a Pentium 3258 anniversary dual cor or is my phenom Quad enough power with 16gb  ram either way?

    I'm trying to keep the ability to stream from home 2 my laptop when I'm out and about....I have the phenom 2 945 with 16gb ddr 3 1600 (4x4) and a gt640 gpu o onboard motherboard card... either should do nicely .. I kinda need my xeon 1246 for my gaming pc build...

  8. my ssd are both crucial mx 200  250gb so if i use your idea ill fill 250gb very fast.. my 2nd idea was 2 use 1 250gb ssd for the os and then get wd red or black for steam library. and put them in a pool. (i can create a 1 disk pool correct?) then add drives as needed total pool will b 3 drives and smallest will b rotated out for larger as needed. so I'm thinking start with either 2 or 3 tb drives for either a 4 or 6 tb pool and expand as needed...will my steam games run off the pool? currently I have shadow of mordor (40gb game)

  9. ? for my gaming pc

    im looking at rebuilding with an MSI z97 gaming 5 or gaming 6 full atx motherboard... i have 2 250gb crucial mx200 ssd that i may raid 0 for os and i wanna run steam so i am thinking of either hoping the 500gb is enough storage or using a wd black or red spindle drive to store steam liabrary and i was considering using drivepool so i can add 2nd drive to pool when needed if i buy that many games.. already bought shadow of mordor and thats 40gb alone...also looking at gtx 960 4gb for graphics and i5 4690k or i7 4790k for cpu... let me no what u guys think this will all sit on win 10 pro

    o and i have 16gb ram (4x4) gskill ripjaws ddr 3 1600
