  1. Now I'm in doubt if go with a New HP where I have to also find the license and some HD or go for an used one, older but already with Win7 Pro and 2T http://www.subito.it/vi/189342896.htm Hp ProLiant Microserver N36L 2 Hard disk of 1Tb total 2Tb 2gb Ram DDR3 ECC
  2. Thanks ... I really need an hardware upgrae
  3. Crazy idea to check if the DrivePool works for me. Can I 1) set-up single WHS drive in a shared drive 2) mount shared drive in my Win 10 PC 3) Create a pool with this network drive using DrivePool on my Win 10PC 4) Test if the products work for me Do you think it's feasible or create duplication over the network would be very slow? Maurizio
  4. Unfortunately I'm still on WHS1 on Acer H340 that's why I'm thinking about an hardware update
  5. Yeah,exactly what I need. At the moment I have in WHS Photos, Music, Videos, Documents, Software everything duplicated once. I would like to increase the redundancy for Photos and Videos to 3 copies. In addition what I don't like from WHS is that I don't know exactly in which HDD my 2 copies are. Instead I would like if possible 2 copies of everything on the 2 largest HD. The third smaller HD should contain the third copy of Photos and Videos Maurizio
  6. Really super basic. Once a week I sync my desktop (Google Drive) with the server. Once a month I create an external backup from the server That's all I do. The H340 does the job still fine. I wanted just to the test drivePool to increase the number of folder duplication for some type of files Maurizio
  7. Thanks a lot for all the comments
  8. Thanks a lot. I will probably proceed with the 2 systems in parallel two avoid any loss. I have all WHS 1 backed up so I can recreate the new system from a backup and later check that WHS1 and the new one are aligned before start cancelling WHS1 Thanks a lot, now I start to find an old MS license to make the all process not too expensive
  9. Thanks a lot. I was in fact looking at some HP. There is a nice offer for 199€ https://www.amazon.it/dp/B013UBCHVU/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2OXD108I2PVHB&coliid=I39RRPQF6HEEIMand if I'm not wrong I just need to add a windows licence on it, move my HD from H340 to this new HP and I'm ready to start
  10. In case anyone was able to install DrivePool on an old Acer Aspire with WHS1 with limited change,happy to try this way
  11. Dear all, after having read a lot about drive pool, I'm thinking to updade my old WHS 1. I have a very limited uses case. 1) Every week I sync all my files from main PC to the server 2) I would like to set-up redundant policy by folder (drive pool should be able to do it) 3) Every month I make a backup on an external hard drive to keep it in a different physical location Considering I would like 4 HD, 1 SSD for the system and 3 HD for the pool ( i could use the same I have in WHS 1) to have 3 duplication for top files, what do you suggest as hardware? Thanks Maurizio
  12. Thanks, I actually got to know you because of We Got Served: indeed very well done. I have very limited functionalities needed: duplication 2/3 ways and external backup of the pool. I might consider to modify an old desktop with with 7 Maurizio
  13. Thanks, I will consider the product if I will update my setup with a new OS Maurizio
  14. Dear all, I'm an happy user of WHS v1. I have very basic needs - File duplication on the WHS - External backup that I keep in a different house/city At the moment WHS v1 works perfectly with DE and Backup. I would like to add an additional layer of security and having for top folders a 3 way duplication on the WHS instead of a simple duplication. I saw very interesting feature of Drive Pool and I wonder if anyone is using it successfully on WHS v1. I'm not considering an update since I'm fine the current set-up at the moment Cheers, thanks Maurizio
