Yeah, I'll probably end up waiting till Cyber Monday and just going all out.

Get a solid raid set-up, with redundancy, so I don't have to look for 10+TB of data again.
xD
Just gotta be proactive and read more on it.

I've built custom gaming PCs before, but never have I done any kind of server so it's a bit new to me.

Haha, yeah good call. I was in the same boat in the beginning as well, never ventured much into the world of servers. But really what I have built is just more of a seedbox than a server. 

I tried the linux route, but after countless hours of help from Sakura, JohnFlower and IkarosBD, I eventually switched over to a simple Windows 7 setup with limited linux abilities (XDCC bot and irc bouncer) and that's been running solid. Plus I don't have to bother the other guys <3

This is all what i have...

/dev/sdc2       916G  840G   76G  92% / # seeding torrents

/dev/sdb        3.7T  3.2T  474G  88% /mnt/4TB # only anime storage
/dev/sda2       1.8T  929G  834G  53% /mnt/Other # games + tv storage

@Catar why do you use zfs? does it handle large files better ?

I honestly mainly use ZFS just because it was built into FreeNAS and was easy to use by default there. However, it does provide some very nice features for protecting against data corruption, integrity and automatic repair features, and better support for very large sized pools (like what I have).

Depending on where you are, it may be cheaper to buy an 8 TB WD Easystore and take out the disk.  There's a lot of discussion about that on Reddit.

just ordered 4x4TB more

Now now... You just love making me jealous... Hahaha....

 

How about donating one of those HDD of yours I'll play for the shipping :-)

 

Anyways all jokes aside. How do you explain all that space to your family or friends? For me just asking people for HDDs that are just lying around they ask me what you put on all that space. And they aren't anime people... Cry!!! Things get tricky

3tb x 3 2.5" - 70gb free

1tb x 3 2.5" - 50gb free

2tb 3.5" - 300gb free

2tb 3.5" - 100gb free

1tb 3.5" - 15gb free

 

Organization is PITA, should probably  catagorise it properly, too many copies of anime that are duplicates or similar but different scene releases. Could save at least a terabyte, but would probably  be filled up in a months time:(

2TB - Documents and Downloads (96%Full)

2TB - Old Backups (58% Full)

1TB - Current Downloads & VM Storage (95%Full)

1TB - Games (49%Full)

240GB SSD - System

 

8TB - Empty - Using as temp space for moving stuff around.

8TB (4TB+4TB LVM) - Empty

1TB SSD - Empty

 

Here's my goal:

8TB - Anime

8TB - More Anime

8TB (4TB+4TB LVM) - Snapraid Parity.

6TB (3TB+3TB LVM) - Non Anime Media: Movies, Music, etc.
