  1. So I completely forgot to put this in the points at the bottom of the post. I would like to explore any free options first if they exist. Now that I think about it the "view as one large partition" bit is much less of a request. I will look into the UnRaid free trial though thank you both for your responses so far.
  2. So to preface my question, I have an older PC that I have for all intents and purposes decommissioned for the past year and a half. Slowly fazing out my old system over 6 months till I ended up with an entirely new gaming PC and leaving the older one to sit and collect dust so far. I have over the past year and a half also come into possession of my friend's and family's old laptops because "I'm techy and would probably have a use for them". Now I don't have a whole lot of use for 3 of the laptops so I would at the very least like to recycle the HDD's and install them into my old PC to make a home NAS solution. I already have a WD My Cloud but it is a Gen 1 I picked up on clearance a few years ago, mainly for the 2TB HDD included that in total only cost me $40. I would ultimately like to Install the 3 laptop drives and 2TB WD drive into the old PC and make it the NAS. Old PC Specs (Please don't judge my build lol I built this at 17 with my own money back in 2011 with a budget of about $500) WIFI Network Card: Rosewill RNX-N250PC2 - Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, (2T2R), Up to 300 Mbps Data Rates, PCI ...

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ965FBGMBOX Processor Motherboard: ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 AM3+ AMD 770 + SB710 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard Original OS SSD: SanDisk ReadyCache SDSSDRC-032G-G26 2.5" 32GB SATA III for Windows 7 and Windows 8 -based PCs GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 DirectX 11 02G-P4-2670-KR 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card The laptop and NAS drives: 1 WD 2TB 1 Toshiba 500GB 1 Toshiba 320GB 1 WD 160GB (I don't NEED this one to be a part of the storage) So questions time. 1: I assume this is possible but if not let me know now. 2: What Software or OS should I get to run the entire system on? 3: Do I NEED any additional hardware? 4. I have a lot of files stored on the 2TB drive, will I need to move those to another location during the process? Criteria I would like to be met. 1. Work primarily as a NAS, as long term media storage to be accessed about 4-5 times a week. 2. Run PLEX. 3. Hopefully view all drives as one partition, or at least the 3 smaller drives. 4. I would like it to require as little maintenance as possible. 5. If it won't work better then the current My Cloud I have then I would rather not bother. By work better I mean just in general have more functionality and be very hassle free after setup. I am an avid watcher of LTT on YouTube and I tried to do a search on the channel for videos that might tackle this exact situation but after a few minutes I decided to give the Forum a shot for the first time. I have an okay amount of PC knowledge but admittedly am lacking in this area. If anyone needs more information to help me out I will do my best to facilitate. I'm not looking for you all to do every bit of work for me but just help me out with putting together a solution that fits my needs based on other's experiences. Hope this post doesn't sound too demanding Thank you in advance for any help.
  3. Razer Blade 14 with my lady the 1060 please!! Going to college soon for IT and my 5 year old desktop isn't classroom friendly. So this would be the life saver I need. Love your channel and congrats on the 3 MILL! I Hope this might spell some new merch in your T-store as well. Maybe throw up the designs from the Blades as a limited offer shirt, if that's even possible.
  4. This projector would be sick for my Sunday game nights!! (replacing Game of Thrones for now) I don't have much room for spacing a projector out in my apartment but this would be PERFECT, cool video too
