About to cannibalize a bunch of external harddrives

22 posts in this topic

And then I'm gonna toss them into my old tower and convert it into a local 16tb+ media server. Chances are I'll still be running windows and if I need to do anything on the computer itself I'll remote into it, though most of the applications that will be ran are web apps that I can access via web browser from any computer at home (and anywhere in the world if I so choose)

 

I'll be doing a software-type raid to pool the drives together, I don't want to have to deal with rebuilding a raid every time I add or remove a drive.

 

What other fun things can I use the computer for besides retrieving and hosting my media? I don't want to completely waste the computer's potential. It IS a full PC, not just a NAS unit I attach harddrives to. I'd love to have one of those but I don't think the price is worth it for those things, costing hundreds to over a thousand dollars to suit my space needs and I still have to purchase the drives on top of that.

If it flies, floats, or fucks, rent it.
