What to do with smaller drives and thunderbays?
I've finally acquired a Flex 8, and also got a 6 bay Thunderbay from the auction site. This will rationalize/ simplify the number of enclosures that I have, whilst getting larger drives will also reduce the number of drives used.
The flipside/ side effect is that I will have a number of Thunderbay 4 and small capacity drives from 2 to 4 that will be surplus to requirements. Is there anything useful that I can do with these please? This is less a support question, and more what other users might be able to suggest please.
Backups and more backups!
I thought you'd say that. I'd have to span a volume across several enclosures if I was going to use Thunderbay 4's with 4TB drives to back up a Flex 8 populated with 12TB drives LOL
Yes, I already use CCC to back up my softraid volumes to other softraid volumes. I backblaze my 'vital' files. Would another layer of CCC , ie backup the backups, be excessive?
Worth is difficult to pin down. I have been thinking about off site. I thought Backblaze included that but can't find it when I looked yesterday.
