My current understanding of Unraid is the following.
Parity = Data mirrors from the Data Drives Nightly, like raid but not instantly like and allows for different sizes such as 8TB Parity and 2 4TB Data Disks
Data = In use constantly, (if cache not used ) and will backup to parity ( nightly ?? hourly ?? )
Which leads to my question.
I would want to use amazing NAS Drives for my Data Disk's but i should use the CHEAPEST Desktop HDD for parity.
I'm sure my understanding is wrong and want someone to ELI5 if i am indeed incorrect.
