Over the last 48 hours, I’ve been re-arranging data, I have 3 x 5TB Seagate USB External Drives, of course, they are all really 3.5″ drives just come in a handy enclosure to use externally.
I’ve managed to rsync one drive to the 3rd, it only had about 500GB, however, the primary drive I’ve used is 2.6TB in storage used. Rsync has been building the list for about an hour now as I’m trying to do the final syncs to shut down another drive – all in all I have the first round of data, but just want to be sure all is ready to go.
Since I’ll have 2 drives cleaned I can make myself a RAID1 array setup on the NAS for starters, then I’m going to mount the USB drive that’s left as an external drive and rsync all from it to the new RAID1 array, once done, I can migrate the array to RAID5 array and expand it out to give me 10GB total storage, leaving one drive for tolerance for fail.
Long term I’d love to go RAID10 with all 10TB drives, but for now, RAID5 with 3 will do, maybe add a 4th and give myself another 5TB of active storage but don’t directly need that yet, though I do have a few price watches out there for insane deals on standalone 5TB drives or the same Seagate external drive I have now 🙂
For now, it’s nearly 5 am… I haven’t slept well tonight and didn’t eat yesterday other than a bag of popcorn, so going to try and close my eyes again and see if things improve. More on my NAS adventure probably Monday once it comes in.
Like any other today is a work day for a chunk of the day, well part of that chunk is still in the air, but I’m still doing prep work to get it ready at the moment, was thinking about taking the kiddo to CALM, weather has been great and will get less great as time goes forward, but so far she’s asleep, though I may change that soon, need to get her sleep on track again if possible, and nights at 4am.. oi.
Back to work, one sync has finished! Have a great Saturday.
Just woke up, enjoyed the rain a bit, but just a lot on my mind as of late. Hoping today will be a better day.
She’s two. She’s still awesome. Just a year older – still love her to pieces!
Work is nuts. Drive failures in process, adding 3 migrations to the already huge list, tired. So tired
Happy Father’s Day. Hope everyone out there has a great day. I’m crashing out as I didn’t sleep at all last night, drove, trained, drove some more. Hot. Tired. Sleep.
In two posts I’ll have reached 100 posts. Honestly? Most of them aren’t what I really want to post, there is so much going on in my life. I want to type about it. I desire to vent. I desire to post it. I desire to be heard.
So when you can’t really post what you want and things are really weighing on you what do you do? Simple. Ask for prayer.
My life is insanely rough right now. So many things uncertain, so many things are sad, hurting, and could be better. Now I know everyone has seasons of hurt, seasons of sadness, and just a crappy time, I am very much wanting mine to come to an end.
So to that end, please be in prayer for my life. It needs something to change and needs something to be better. Please keep me in your prayers.
This has been the most stressful month on record. Something has to change.
Nearly done with taxes, just have to plug everything in, and pray that it all pans out. Just so tired of finances, really why can’t we just all owe X dollars for X Earned. I’m so good with that!
My body has nearly had it though with all this stress, so going to bed, waking up early, hoping Lilly sleeps in then digging into the final stretch, making out 2 checks for the state LLC filing and LLC min tax, then I want to do a few hours of tickets then maybe a movie! Something. I need a break.
