    Help - Ghost of Tsushima Raid Chapters

    I am appealing to the good nature of the avforums gang and wonder if anyone would be willing to help me get through the Raid Chapters on Ghost of Tsushima. Sadly the random matchmaking makes it difficult to complete even the first chapter.

    Which NAS has more flexible RAID implementation?

    I remember a while ago someone pointed out that standard RAID (I think RAID1) can be quite strict in terms of initial volume sizes. I'm sorry I forget the details but it was something like the first disk you installed 'locked' the volume size forever meaning you couldn't easily install bigger...

    Question RAID NAS - Do you keep a spare drive in case of failure?

    I have recently been persuaded here that once you have a NAS arrangement that includes RAID resilience to disk failure (with backup) that it makes sense to run disks to the point where they do fail, rather than swap them out routinely after four years run time? Do people here have a spare disk...

    As people here may (or may not) recall, earlier in the year, I re-purposed a low energy consumption PC to be a combined PC, for use in the garage and a NAS for data storage/media server. The NAS side of things has 2x4TB WD Reds running in RAID 1 configuration with backup to a separate machine...
