  1. Thank you very much! Yeah I am not going for raid controller. I will be moving my HBA controller with the disks and using SATA onboard as I am now.
  2. Given what is said above does this extend to system replacement in its entirety except the disks? What I am trying at here is this: If I take my drives and plug them into a new system (all hardware replaced except drives) and plug my USB Unraid into the new system will it just work or do I need to do something or will it tank the data?

This would be my first Unraid build and would be replacing the Synology DS1817+ I got now. I like the idea of parity but with full disk writes and not spread on many as well as easier expandability.
