  1. I suppose I could run them both at the same time, but "Change where new content is saved" can be wonky at times. Thanks for the input.
  2. Like the title says. My system currently runs a Kingston UV400 240GB as the main boot drive, it replaced a Micron MX100 256GB that had the drop out at random times even after firmware update problem. The UV400 running fine and all but I'm finding myself a bit limited as far as free space left goes. I was gifted a lightly used Kingston A400 480GB. From what I understand the A400 drive is budget drive, but it's newer than the UV400 and double the capacity. I was wondering if the better performance SSDs get when they come in larger capacities would be enough to offset the tier difference and if it was worth the hassle of going through the process to switch to it. Please do not recommend buying a Micron BX/MX whatever to me. I've just got a BX300 120GB that came back from a RMA and was upgraded to a BX500 120GB, it was nice of Micron to upgrade the drive, but that's two failures for me. Plus, I already have the A400 480GB on hand.
  3. Hmmn, thanks for the replies. As my case has arrived and I have most of the other hardware, I've opted to try out Rockstor for the time being.
  4. I would like some suggestions or recommendations for an off site NAS OS. I've been doing some research but I have some peculiar needs that is hard to find concrete answers to. Specs are as follows. Asus AT3IONT-I mini itx. Atom 330 64bit capable processor. Nvidia ION chipset (boots and recognizes 8gb but hard limited to 3~3.25gb usable) Kingston DDR3 1333 2gb*2 4x Sata 3GBps Raid 0,1 capable. PCIE x16*1 GBe For the chassis I basically have a NSC-400 4bay hotswap clone coming in the mail with a 150W Zumax Flex-1500 1U Flex PSU. I have no experience with NAS devices other than Windows 10 sharing JBODs and Filezilla Server. The offsite box currently serves 3~4TB JBODs on a 300Mbps/100Mbps outbound connection and a GBe + 300M wireless N local network. This new deployment will likely run along side the current networked devices and will not be replacing the current Win 10 share. My home network is served by what is basically an Asus RT-AC68U attached to a USB 3.0 drive formated in EXT4 on samba as there is nothing on the home network that needs a dedicated storage appliance. I have an assortment of drives ranging from 500GB to 2TB that have retired from my main computer along with 1 of the Mediasonic Probox 8bay USB 3.0 enclosures. I may have 4TB drives stepping down as 8TB drives become affordable in the future. What I am unable to obtain a definite answer to is if any of the popular NAS OSes out there are able to support non-unicode files ranging from BIG5, GB, and SHIFT-JIS reliably and if any of the OSes besides Xpenology supports mix matching drives and expanding/retiring drives one at a time. I would also like to know if any of the OSes are capable of making use of the 8bay USB 3.0 enclosure. I've read about small single board arm based devices being able to use USB drives, but they are mostly single drive enclosures. Most of what I've read is just a regurgitation along the lines of 8gb ram + 1gb more per 1TB, buy drives of the same size/specs and ZFS ZFS ZFS. I have no need for VMs, transcoding, or decoding to be done on this machine. It is merely a platform for tinkering and evaluation purposes. I do not wish to purchase UnRaid. I would like for the OS to run off of a flash drive if possible as I have an assortment of 8~16gb drives that are no longer in use. As this machine will be deployed off site, I'd like it to be relatively stable as it's at least an half hr trip should something go wrong. Anyone onsite will not be tech inclined and will not be able to do anything more than turning off and on the power and informing whether or not an LED is on and what colors are flashing.
