Hi Skinamp,

I think we all struggle with storage :)

Currently using 4 X 4TB external WD Drives via a USB3 HUB and a couple of TB locally on a PC (Cataloged in Coollector). Looking at a secondary backup on these and expansion routes isnt clear at the moment though. If i went Large NAS (as you have gone) then i would be looking at mirroring or something like RAID 10 and there is a large overhead on capacity as a consequence. I suppose with any storage requirement there is a big $$ cost associated with multiple copies/disk redundancy/hot swaps that some will willingly pay and some won't.

Have a good one

Hi Beldeamon, i use the Qnap in raid 5 giving me the possibility to rebuild a broken disk at lowest cost of diskspace... 16Tb Leaves a usable 10.8Tb, i think/hope this turns out to be the best solution.
Anyway, the ease of use is great and i don't regret bying it.
