I have a bunch of older 3, 4 and 6TB drives that aren't currently in my main system that i want to make use of. What are some suggested options to externally adding these to a drive pool? I saw this in one post IB-3680SU3 and have seen something like this before as well Mediasonic H82-SU3S2 is there anything i should be aware of to make this work optimally? I'll also have a few drives in my main system that would be part of the pool as well.
Hi, I am about to extending my pool with a new set of drives. In the past I moved from drive bender to this because 1 drive died / got stuck and I wanted to take advantage of the Scanner. So my current setup is a bunch of single disks and a RAID5 pool to prevent data loss of one drive, all added to one pool. I am now asking myself if it is still clever with drivepool and the scanner in place to build a second RAID5 drive with the new drives and add it to the pool or to keep it as a bunch of disks and rely on the scanner? Is there any advantage / disadvantage in using RAID5 for pooled drives or leaving them as a bunch of disks? I don't want to duplicate stuff, because this would lead to heavy requirements. At the moment I am at about 20TB for my media library and I don't want to double the required space With the new disks I would now be able to move the data off the RAID and reset them as a bunch of disks. This is why I am asking. Thank you in advance. Kind regs
