  1. Hello, I am a Localization Specialist for Romanian localizations of games and software. I'm interested in localizing and maintaining a Romanian version of Unraid. Please let me know if/when you consider a Romanian version of Unraid GUI, and I'll be happy to help. Portfolio can be provided on demand.
  2. Happy to report I have it running, installed a few dockers I need, almost finished copying all data from individual HDDs to the array (down to the last HDD now), and looking at ways to further tune/optimize the setup. Big thanks to everyone who helped, and to the community in general, for being no less than AWESOME!
  3. My TVs are connected to 5 GHz wireless, there is enough bandwidth for direct streaming. On another note, I have decided not to bother doing the hardware upgrade later, so I ordered new Motherboard, CPU, PSU and RAM. Motherboard: ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2400G (I wanted a 3400g but it's nowhere to be found where I live) PSU: Corsair RM850 2019 - 12 SATA connectors RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16), DDR4, 3000MHz A couple USB 2.0 sticks for Unraid. They should all arrive tomorrow. This way I will be able to use both
  4. @kimifelipe Thank you for the advice. So the plan would become: Configure LSI controller. Install Unraid on USB stick, launch, run initial configuration. Preclear 2x14 TB HDDs, preclear 4 TB empty HDD, create unprotected array using all three disks. That gives me 32 TB of empty space to copy the data to. Connect 1x 14 TB HDD (the full one), copy data over to the array. Preclear the 14 TB HDD, set it as a parity drive (I don't mind subsequent data transfers taking longer). Copy the 8 TB drive data, preclear 8 TB HDD, add to array. Copy the 10 TB d
  5. Thank you very much for your reply. I was hoping someone would I will structure my reply by points, makes it easier to continue the conversation. Parity drives: Yes, there will be 2 parity drives, I will buy two more 14TB drives in April, one of which will be the second parity drive. Long term plan is to change motherboard and CPU, have two LSI Controllers (8 HDDs + 16 HDDs), with parity and everything. Copying: would the cache fill very quickly, given read speed from one HDD is roughly equal to write speed to the destination HDD? At any rate, I will enable the cache po
  6. Hi everyone, I am a brand-new member, and happy to be here. As a beginner, I understand that some of my questions might be puerile, we've all been there, so please be gentle with me. Without further ado, here's my current situation: I have a homemade NAS running Windows 10 Pro x64 (I know, I know...) and despite the general consensus about such a choice, it has served me well. The main scope of the NAS is to hold large amounts of data (mainly media files) and PLEX. Its hardware configuration is nothing special: Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 mATX CPU: Ryzen 3 12
