3tb drives and 5.0-beta13 stability

Recommended Posts



I am finally ready to jump into and build my first unraid box. I have been following the forums for a while now.

now that 5.0 beta has been out a while with upgrades now to  5.0-beta13, how does everyone feel about 3tb drive usage as well as the overall stability of  5.0-beta13? Should I run with  5.0-beta13 or stick with 4.7?

Same question here :-)

so far:

3 Hitachi 2TB HD are on the shelfs

2 USB drives on order

10 various SATA cables on order

1 old full tower case is on the bench awaiting  customization (some paint here and there, new HD racks  etk.)

I use a Supermicro LSI2008-based SATA card, but no 3TB drives yet.


I am sticking with 5.0beta11 at the moment, which is running perfectly well.  I did upgrade to beta12/12a, but reverted when I discovered that nfs is broken in that version.  Reports suggest that the nfs problem is not yet fixed in beta13.
