Does anyone have an at home storage solution? I'm using a custom low power mobo with an q1900 cpu with 16tb of redundant storage. Wondering what y'all are rocking Smiley

I recently gave in to purchasing a 4-bay Synology NAS solution (diskless) and populated it with 4 'ol reliable 8 TB (4x8TB = 32TB ) Hitachi drives to add to my (4x5TB) 20 TB Western Digital Black in my gaming rig, add one for the seedbox and I've got 32 TB + 20 TB + 1 TB = 53 TB, only which 1 TB at a time is hosted here, incidentally, until the i9-7940x for my x299 board ships and I've time to construct the render farm.  Tongue

Will give oral for a petabyte.  xD

Not enough at 4TB.

I have a whole series of systems... Just the system that I have on site in the main building where my trailer is has FOUR different 2 TB hard drives installed. Each one is accessible across the internal network, including from the extremities such as the trailer, which sits in the bush out in the field, some 200 feet away from the main building where my network begins.

From there, I have three other data stations that I've built myself. They are all in different locations, and all host at LEAST 2 TB worth of hard drive storage at any given point in time, all of which is accessible to me through the internet portion of my local network. For when I'm not at home, I have a way of being able to VPN into one of the two stations as though my computer were directly connected to the internal network, so as to be able to access the content from virtually anywhere securely.... All through a 100% home made system.

I have gone in the opposite direction to most posters here. I stopped downloading for the sake of downloading, purged all the porn I never watched and I now have just two HDDs (a 4TB porn disk and a 4TB backup) with no plans to ever buy more. My new rule is to delete almost all TV and movies after watching, along with every porn file which disappoints (which is most of them). Grin

I got tired of occasionally losing my media/porn on drives that would fail, so I built a home server running Windows Server 2016 and got two 4 disk Probox enclosures to add several drives to a Windows managed Storage Space. I currently have 26tb (before striping/mirroring) that I use for various things, my porn collection included.

It's almost worse now, because while I don't have to worry about losing it, filling up a drive previously would force me to clean out stuff I don't watch, now I just expand the partition and pop another drive in the array once a year or so.
