Hard Drive Upgrade Advice


Recommended Posts

I have been runnning my current rig since 2012. I have replaced a few hard drives in that time, but I have several failing now, including my parity drive, and I figure its time to upgrade. Here are my specs:


Model: Custom

M/B: Supermicro X9SCL/X9SCM Version 1.11A

BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Version 2.0b. Dated: 09/17/2012

CPU: Intel® Core™ i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz

HVM: Enabled

IOMMU: Disabled

Cache: 128 KiB, 512 KiB, 3072 KiB

Memory: 8 GiB DDR3 Single-bit ECC

Network: eth0: 1000 Mbps, full duplex, mtu 1500
 eth1: interface down


Mainly used to store movies and TV shows, and run dockers for NZBget, Plex, Sonarr, Radarr


I currently have a mix of 2TB and 3TB drives, but I think I may be able to replace the parity drive with something larger and start upscaling from there.


I haven't really been active in keeping up on trends, looking for advice on how to determine how large of drives my rig will allow, and looking for any upgrade advice from  the community.
