Stablebit + Flexraid questions from a beginner
Hi I'm new to flexraid and need some advice how to setup my system best with stablebit which I have been using a long time. My system is that I have 1xssd as OS WHS 2011, 4 x 2 TB internal discs and a 2 TB external USB 3.0 on the way. All My 4x2 TB is in the pool.
My questions are the following:
1. Will it be best to use the new external as ppu and add the next external drives in the Future as dru? (I only have 6 sata on motherboard and pci slott is in use already)
2. Will my system be slow on day to day tasks primary streaming my media or will it only be when I first initialize and restoring?
3. I read somewhere that smaller Files like pictures should be out of flexraid and backed up through stablebit. Should I then have a separate drive for this or should I mappen the folders instead of harddrives as dru?
4. I have a temperary location now which is in the pool where my downloads are going before they are processed. How can i do that the smartest way when using stablebit and flexraid together. Should i buy yet another harddrive just for that or how can i do it the smartest way.
I'm sorry for the many questions but I just want to do it right the first time:)
