I’m on the verge of jumping from FreeNAS to Rockstor for my home NAS, and this might be the last answer I need to pull the trigger.
I have 3 HDD drives: one each of 1,2,3TB. I need some kind of redundancy to deal with a single drive failing(which could happen soon), and then the maximum space available. I read in document that Rockstor doesn’t work with partitions(only whole disks), so is it possible to start with these 3 disks, and build a RAID5 pool that’s bigger than 1TB? or should I stick with 3TB of RAID1 for now, and when I got around for more 3TB drives, add them in, and re-profile the pool to use RAID 5?
another question: Can I install Rockstor on a pair of USB drive used as RAID1 array?
