Well, that depends on his OS choices. It is supported in a couple different virtual environments. If nothing else, it meets his needs for now...

TrueCrypt may be free, open source, cross platform, and easy to use, but VHD support is built into his OS, and also quite easy.

This is a standard thing among all RAID controllers? Or is it a feature set specific to a specific brand, etc?

comment Hard drive options for home media server
I understand how RAID works. I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to replace a smaller drive with a larger drive, then allow me to utilize the space. As I understand it, with most (if not all) RAID controllers, if I have 2x 1TB drives, and 2x 2TB drives, if I replace a 1TB with a 3TB, the RAID array will still be the same size. Is there an implementation that will allow me to perform this functionality?

FreeNAS looks good to me. Might need to test this out with some virtual machines.

Backup is not truly necessary. This is not vital data. I can buy a controller if necessary... Is JBOD my only option to be able to replace smaller drives with larger drives? If that's even a possibility.

Im actually only at about 3TB / 6TB. I'm not intending this to be a "backup", just fault tolerance. Buying a 3TB drive and moving everything to it and blowing the span is also not an option. My case has quite a few bays - I wont be replacing the smaller drives until I have close to 12 TB or more, which is not feasible to use this method.

comment PST File Same Size After Archiving
This would probably go faster if you create a new PST, and move files from one to the other in Outlook. Might be a pain for a folder structure.

What kid of white dots? A block of white pixels? Is the pattern the same every time? How long does it stay? How long between appearances?

Backlight issues would cause a dimming or over-brightened appearance distributed through one region.
