And where did you come up with that? That is min install size if I recall, not what it uses.
With what you wouldn't need to use raid 10? why would you need to use raid 10 in a home setup for ever?? That is OVERKILL for storing anything in your home.. You do understand that RAID is not a backup!
What could you possible have in home network that could not survive an outage for restore from backup? If you are running raid 10 in the home - your wasting money IMHO! I just don't see how to justify it.
The fact that when I used WHS2011 that is how it set up the drive 60GB for C:\ the rest of the drive was left for me to do what I liked, ahve looked at that drive pool app, looks good, so I may change from raid to that, seeing as it will do much the same thing
I am aware raid is not a back up that is why I have backups of backups and seeing as this pc came with 4 500gb hard drives it wasnt a waste, as it was in with the price, that is why I am posting here, to ask for advice on what people think based on the needs I have put up, if raid is overkill then I can change it, but unless I ask the questions how am I to get the answers
What about encryption, do people think that is overkill for a home environment?
