Hello, I moved most of my hard drives from my main PC to my Storage / HTPC server. Now currently I am running a - Windows Raid 1 (duplication) two 3 TB drives (personal Media up to 2011) - 1 Single 3 TB harddrive (personal other files) - 1 single 2 TB files which seems to be slowly failing (personal Media 2012+) - adding two new 3 TB drives next week all of those are backed up to the cloud with crashplan. Crashplan is re-synchronizing right now. I heard much good about drivepool. BUT I am really confused why I hardly cant find any YOUtube videos like reviews or hands one videos (is it not that popular) I just installed a trial and what i read was that it will always write data on the harddrive that is the least full. Now I always like a backdoor. And it seems drivepool gives you that backdoor. BUT and that seems to be a BIG BUT... files might be randomly on different harddrives...!!! With 5TB of Photos (lets say 200.000 photos) I see a NIGHTMARE ever wanting to change back....! I DO like the idea that drivepool could duplicate everything, but I am really scared off making a HUGH Mess!!! Why do I want to use drivepool... for example i like to have all Media in one drive... since i have more than 3 TB data i cannot physically store it in only one HD. Also currently my Raid1 cant be used from drivepool. I would have to "unraid" and go from there... (but how) any thoughts would really be appreciated!!! Let say I want to Migrate... what would be the best way to do so? Alex
