    Newbie setup

    Hi Drashna, Thanks very much for your reply, much appreciated. Yes it is a 512GB SSD ;-) I've set the Disks up C:\Mount\Disk01 etc. I might have gone with ReFS, after what you've said ,but "fortunately" Snap RAID doesn't support this yet

    Newbie setup

    Sorry about the n00bness of this question but I'm not a Windows Server setup expert and any help/guidance would be much appreciated. I've got a new Microserver :16Gb, 4 core, 512MB SSD (OS) and 2x10TB NAS drives. I was hoping to set this up as Windows Server 2016 (with desktop experience) to act as a file server for a Linux based Kodi box. I've got various other Windows machines which would looking to access Shares on the server. Once 3-6 months has gone by, hopefully Disk prices have fallen a bit I was planning on getting a third disk and hooking up Snap RAID. I'm looking to run HyperV so that I can fire up VMs to use my MSDN sub to set up some test labs for work/community stuff. As well as using the improved docker support to dig into Containers. I was hoping to avoid having to set the box up as a DC or does DrivePool require "Server Essentials Experience" to be enabled? Or would I be better going with Win 10 Pro and just turn everything off. Finally is ReFS still proving problematic, and SnapRAID covers that anyway?
