Indeed, the article in the OP is for the model 1-2 years ago.
It is quite interesting that the biggest issues building these wafer sized chips wasn't to make the chips themselfs but how to supply power and cooling.
3.1 was a nice upgrade from 3.0 as the interface got the 3D look applied to all the buttons and window frames. 3.11 was an even bigger upgrade as that was when you really could start doing LAN connectivity out of the box.
Thinking about it, it was probably a Swedish version of Windows 98SE I found on floppies when I was doing a summer job at an IT company clearing out one of their cupboards. Shame I didn't keep it, it seems to have become quite a collectable now.
That's the one, the good old Lian-Li 20th Anniversary case.
I snapped some pics with my phone after doing work on it last night (swapped PSU and installed 3-to-5 bay):
The red SATA cables will be swapped out for black round ones at some stage.
This is indeed what I would pick as well and what I will have at home once the Dream Machine Pro is officially released in the UK. A single pane of glass for end to end configuration/monitoring is great.
That diagram is my system which has been going strong for over 3 years now. The only issues are that I can't run Audyssey on the height speakers and once week or so I have to manually align the two volume settings as they can get out of sync after a while.
I don't change DSP modes so they are...
Did you try to access any file that had been copied across before they vanished?
Have you tried to use the new SSD to create/use/delete files at all to see if even the most basic functionality is there?
Enterprise 3.5" SSD's are currently available up to 30TB in size, they are anything but affordable unfortunately.
I would like to see 8TB SSD's next year at the pricing of current 4TB SSD's but prices are unlikely to drop that fast.
I did this a few months ago and it is no difference at all in speed regardless if the drives are full or empty.
I first added 1 10TB drive to a 4 x 10TB array as a test, I then added 2 10TB drives to the then 5 x 10TB array. The time it takes is the same so next time I will add all new drives...
