Storage Pooling / what happens with a drive failure in a storage pool?
« on: April 07, 2012, 02:36:05 pm »
I am interested in flexraid.

I have a WHS2011 server with 4x2TB drives in it.

I dont wish to RAID 5 it as I dont want to sacrifice any drive size.  The data thats on these drives (mostly blue ray movies) can all be easily re-ripped should the drive fail.

Anyway, my question is.

If I create an auto storage pool that fairly distributes the data over the four drives, what happens if one goes pop.

Does all the data go down, just like RAID0 or will I be able to access all the remaining data on the other three seemlessly?
