    Planned upgrade

    So My FreeNAS system is 3+ years old. Populated with 8x4tb WD reds + 1 cold spare, it is falling short, in terms of storage. Pool is currently at 75% and I know I don’t have to cross 80%. I’m planning to bite the bullet and go for WD reds either 8tb or 10tb non pro. The prices are still...

    Hello, I'm building my first NAS and will be running FreeNAS 11. This will be a relatively small build for home use. My plan is to use six WD Red 2TB drives. I had originally thought to build my array with all six drives and use Raid-Z2. My concern with this plan is if I decide to expand...
