Scott,

I have with 2 Seagate 500GB Barracuda 7200 HDDs.

(Check this out if you have one or want to find add-ons and pretty much anything else you need to know.)

The NAS was purchased from along with a 2nd HDD. ReadyNAS_Duo_+_500GB_HDD.png
ReadyNAS_Duo_+_500GB_HDD.png [ 31.93 KiB | Viewed 17634 times ]

I would like to swap 1 of the current drives for a 1TB Seagate Drive and use the replaced 500GB Seagate Drive in another computer or for archiving. One of the features of this NAS is it's X RAID technology so I shouldn't have any problem running the device with the mixed drive sizes. I realize that I will have half of the 1TB drive unused but I plan to later swap the remaining 500GB Drive for another 1TB Drive, thus leaving me with a redundant 1TB NAS and 2 spare 500GB Drives.

Could you suggest which 1TB Drive I should purchase now and later, considering my roadmap? I've read that you can mix drives from different mfr's but I would prefer to stick with Seagate. I want to get the best performance out of the NAS without purchasing a premium drive (I also plan on maxing out the memory but this post isn't about that.


Should I be concerned about the being reported? I did see that but I don't want to cause myself undue stress.

-Evan

If it helps the Samsung F1 1TB's are quick! Got two in Raid 1 myself, if the data is critical get Scott recommendation.

I've been a fan of the enterprise drives since we built a server with a 5 drive raid5 array. We originally used regular hitachi hard drives but the array kept failing. Once we switched to the enterprise drives it's been working great.

I find them worth the extra cost for peace of mind. Just remember one thing:
It doesn't matter what kind of hard drive you get, it WILL fail someday.

Mike.

Everyone,

Thank you for the input. Until now I thought enterprise class drives were overkill. Now I see there are valid point for anyone to consider. I will definately use this thread as a resource and rocommend anyone involved with implementing any level of storage solution to read this post. I believe a lot of people are under the *misleading* (not entirely false) assumption that the various RAID technologies are all that need to be considered.

My experience is in the SOHO and personal environments so Scott's argument about using a 24/7 drive in a 24/7 machine hadn't been in my "radar" as much as it should.

I'll keep up the research.

-Evan

My Raid 1 'array' is only really used as a single drive!

From what Mike is saying perhaps Raid 5 is pointless without the proper drives now! In general if a product is released to solve a problem then that means there is a problem!!! Maybe just maybe ordinary drives are not good for 3+ drive arrays!

Just get the best kit you can afford and if you can't then don't!

In Chelmsford there is/was a shop that uses/used an original IBM PC with HDD! Wonder it that is still there and working etc? Might drive down there and have a look!

While I haven't fired them up in a few years, I'm sure my original PC, XT, and AT systems all work fine. That equipment was built like a tank. <g> Scott.

I've got my old Laptop running Windows 3.1 for Workgroups (I think it is from around 93). I believe it has 64MB of RAM <g>. I found it in my fathers closet about a year ago and it booted and worked fine.

Scott, if I run into trouble with it are you going to be able to help fix that machine? I'd love to take it apart but I'm not sure if it could stand it <g>.

If I remember right 64MB is a lot for Win 3.1!

Had an old thinkpad a gew years back used to sit in my bedroom and play doom on it!

First thing to remember when dismantling laptops is to create screw maps! I normally create three.

One for upside down machine (always with front of machine facing you, then before keyboard removal map, then sub-structure map (normally the last map before Motherboard can be removed.

Don't forget to remove Battery and charger before dismantling, and whilst the machine is in bits good idea to change the CMOS battery.
