Ok guys I have had my little WHS 2011 box setup for a while now and I am really feeling the storage squeeze with only 1 750gb 7200rpm OS drive and a 2tb Samsung F4 for storage. Right now I only have a 1tb drive for backups and about 300gb of free space left on my 2tb drive (running out of space fast!) And to top it off I am paying for college right now and the semester is just about to start (multiple $200+ books) so I can only afford one drive right now Is it a bad idea for me to go for another 2tb for just storage? And as for Raid 5, I have a Samsung F4 2TB right now - should I stick with the same drives or would it be OK to go for a few SATA III drives if I can get a good deal? (SO EXPENSIVE RIGHT NOW!! ). And is it an OK idea to use my onboard RAID controller for a RAID5 setup or is it dangerous? I know the WD Green drives are out for RAID 5 so I wont even ask (though the 2TB EARX goes for ~100 right now brand new on ebay while the cheapest Sammy F4's I can find are 150). Speed doesnt really matter as its mostly 720p video files. Basically looking for advice. What would you do on a budget in my situation? I need more storage space but having most of it un-backed up worries me (I have had many hdd's fail in the past). Love WHS2011 but now I am totally out of space - and will be broke for the most part till im out of college (I hate textbooks).
