comment Seagate NAS 4000TB drive only shows up as 1677.90 GB
My favourite part of the data sheet for this drive is the table in section 2.2, which suggests that the drive provides its 4000 GB formatted capacity with ~ 7 billion 4 kbyte sectors. That's impressive! It's too bad they couldn't cut down on that 567% (22TB) overhead however. =)

If the old dock is letting you "see" the first 1677GB of the disk, then if you create a < 1.6GB partition at the beginning using one dock, that partition will work with the other dock and vice versa. But I really wouldn't count on it.

If nothing else there's a clue in the sizes: 4 trillion bytes, or about 3725 GiB, minus the capacity you see (1677GiB) is 2048 GiB, a conspicuous power of two. So what you're seeing is likely to be the result of a size counter somewhere "rolling over" at 2048GB. This is a 4 platter drive, so the platters are ~ 931 GiB which is hard to get 1677GiB from. =)

How is using RAID related to caching? Did you want to use multiple M.2 SSD together as a cache?

comment Xbox 360 wireless receiver causing issues with my Bluetooth adapter
And FYI, installing drivers from "a CD" is almost always a mistake; they're usually out of date, and sometimes not even compatible with your OS.

comment openRTSP default 25fps encoding (not 24)
Per the note at live555.com/openRTSP , if the SDP specifies a frame rate for the stream, it will be used of the -f parameter value. It might help to know the model of your IP cameras -- you may be able to set it on the camera side. Also, 25 fps isn't unusual to find in regions where 720p50 / 1080i50 is the standard for broadcast TV.
