Thank you. That was what i thinking. Because i hear alot about how perfect of the combine snapraid + driverpool , but i think using driverpool will make alot of driver letter, sometime it make me confuse.
So your solution is mounting a data disk into folder then snapraid will backup that folder...
Thank you! With a pool with 12 disk but 4 of disk are full, so there should be a paritys with at least 4-5 disk, right?
In my case, best way to use snapraid is using stablebit drivepool creat 2 pool which is 7x8TB large. And use snapraid to make one pool become active disk and another pool...
I still don't understand the solution Unraid + Stable bit drivepool ! Is it we creat 2 drive pool and miror one to another ? What happend if i have 7 x 8TB disk? How can Snapraid calculator a 7 disk and decice what is partial and what is active disk ?
For 14 disks. Is it : I use Stable bit...
I am finishing building a new server with AMD Ryzen 2600 . Then i back to the question :
I am having 14 x 8TB disk. I want to to combine 7x8TB disks into one logic disk and mirror it with another 7x8TB logic disk. Are there anyway to do it ? And will it safe?
It will take space for the backup machine. I think i will link 7x8TB disk to one logic disk and mirror it with another 7x8TB disk to have safe data backup. And all of 14 disk in the same computer case to save space. As i don't need speed so i just do it basic to keep everything simple and safe.
I end up with a ryzen 2600 + B450M board + 16GB ram + LSI 9400-16i. I will put all the disk in the SAS card which is 12Gbs/1 port to save power for I/O and CPU read disk data. Do you think it ok? And will that 9400-16i will last long for all day server?
Thank you for all the great advise! I am using windows server so what is the best windows raid software right now ?
I am thinking in between raid6 and raid10 , raid6 look like i have more space, anyone know how long it take to rebuild a 14 x 8tb disk array in raid6?
Thanks Meecho and WsstSidaz,
I still don't understand why we should avoid HW Raid? With the Adaptec ASR-8885 can build Raid10 Array in 16 disk and 12Gbs/lane only arround 250$ (ebay), i thought HW Raid alway better than SW Raid.
Yup , i also thought that were old broken cable so i bought 7 more new sata cable, i also change those dead disk to another port but it surely dead already.
My CPU is I3 3GHz with 8G Ram so do you think a raid card will safer and faster than a software raid by windows?
I am having a file server for home media like music, movies 4K, etc... with 15x8TB disk. 7 disk are Seagate Archive 8TB in mainboard Sata port (JBOD) and 8 disk are WD GOLD 8TB in PERC H200 card (JBOD). Last week i moved my house so i turn of my file server for a few days. Last night after...
