My external HDD died and I've lost everything, so I've decided to spend some money to prevent future loss of my critical files.
I want to buy a NAS with 4 or 5 bays, with 2 disk redundancy. I already chose the disks, the famous WD RED 3TB.
The main use will be as my home central storage (for my PC/tablet and my girlfriend laptop), and as repository of all my movies.
My questions are:
- Can the media center, accessing directly the NAS shares could cause any integrity problem? I want to use the NAS as a XBMC repository.
- If I buy a 5 bay NAS, can I use 4 disks with RAID 6 for storage and 1 disk individually to run some services, like web server, ftp, ...? Would it be a good idea?
Thanks in advance
