Thoughts on my rebuilt unraid server


Recommended Posts

The parity disk must be as large as any other disk in the system -- so a 2TB drive would be okay for the drives you have; but then you'd be limited to 2TB drives as you add more, so you may want to use a larger parity disk to give you the flexibility of adding larger drives and/or replacing your current drives with larger drives as your needs grow.


Read about "user shares" => these let you define a "share" that will automatically use all of your disks with no intervention on your part -- you just write to the share, and UnRAID will decide where to put the actual data, based on the allocation method and split levels you have set (you can just use the defaults with no problem).
