NO affordable AQnalogyS NAS can prevent damage from SDC.

BtrFS or ZFS could be one of the solutions.
ZFS BSD OS: FreeNAS, NAS4Free, ZFS Guru ... etc

Let's try to install FreeNAS on VM, aimed to see how difficult could it be.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Alert: As i never try it before, it could take weeks to build it. Be patient.

My plan:
1) dual mirrored USB boot stick: for higher availability, shorter downtime than reinstall OS and later import configuration settings (actually i don't care about downtime too much coz it's home used)
2) 6 hard disks for RaidZ2: 4 disk drives space are useable and tolerant to lose 2 disk drives at the same time, pretty reliable to home user

*** rebooting, you need to either select boot with USB stick OR remove the FreeNAS.iso/ cd ***

No it is not hard by any means, for novice they will need to spend a lot of time reading up, others may be able to do it once they find the time.

But I am well pass that time already. As we grow old i have less them to fiddle around and just want things to work.

早差不多2年前用過,但好像好多問題,如iscsi速度, 食ram, folder難set,跟住轉了omv。近年不清楚了。
