  13. In Unraid, data isn’t striped so if you had a 3 TB parity drive and 2 3TB data drives, you would be protected from one HD failure and could reconstruct from the parity drive. If somehow you had simultaneous double hard drive failure then you would be in trouble. If you want all of your data mirrored, you would need dual parity meaning you would need 4 total 3TB drives. 2 parity/2 normal hard drives. Or- have a secondary backup solution in lieu of dual parity. This is a pretty good video describing the parity drive and how it works:
  14. I haven’t ever used this calculator but in your situation I believe you would just need 3- 3 TB drives. Parity drive just needs to be as big as your largest drive on the array.
  15. Hello there, I will follow up on this internally and get back to you shortly. Cheers, Spencer
  16. THREAD LOCKED- Stay tuned for a blog with Tom's answer's! For an upcoming blog, we’ll be publishing a Q&A with Tom Mortensen, the Founder and CEO of Lime Technology and creator of Unraid. This is where you, the Unraid community come in: For the coming weeks, we’re opening up the floor to you all to ask Tom (@limetech) a question. Anything and everything is fair game-- just drop your question into this forum thread and he’ll do his best to get as many answered as possible (can't guarantee every question will be answered). The floor is yours! Here’s a little more info about Tom from our website: Tom began his career in enterprise-storage at a start-up company called Maxstrat. Maxstrat was one of the first companies to offer disk array products and was ultimately purchased by Sun Microsystems in 1999. After the Sun Microsystems acquisition, Tom worked in their Network Storage Division as a system architect, and later for other start-up companies before starting Lime Technology. With his passion for electronic media and background in storage, he knew there had to be a better way to store and stream media content throughout his home, so in 2005 he invented Unraid to protect and manage his media files. Unraid was a new twist on an older technology that didn’t require all the devices in an array to be continually spun up, thereby reducing power consumption, and increasing the lives of the drives. Tom is very excited about what the future holds for Lime Technology as we continue to be on the forefront of digital media storage innovation. On a more personal note, one of Tom’s favorite hobbies is brewing beer.
