hey everyone another dilemma on the plate I need suggestions for. I currently have an old 1u server a buddy gave me a year ago. It currently has 2 1tb drives that are raid configured and whatever happens to one drive is mirrored on the other. I also have a 1 tb external hooked up to it with usb. I am starting to run low on space and was thinking of ditching this whole server thing and purchasing a drobo and adding hard drives to it. As I did the math it got pretty costly just to even have 4tb of storage which btw it supports up to 16tb with 4tb drives in each bay. I wanted to know if it would be better to build a pc with a bunch of hard drives in it or just get the drobo. My other option would be to get a 4 to 1 usb expansion and buy more externals and hook them up to the server any thoughts?
