    • backup on lower capacity hd

      Hallo, maybe this is a silly question, but I am a total novice. I have made a search in the forum, but without any luck, so please help me.
      I am building a Nas on a Hp N54L with 4 x 3tb WD Red (I am thinkig to put them in Raid 10, but open to your suggestion) and a 64gb ssd for OMV.
      in the cd tray I have a tray for both a 2,5 hd (here is the OMV ssd) and a 3,5 hd which I plan to use for backup.
      with this configuration my raid can hold up to 6tb, and here is the question:
      to backup the full raid, do I need an expensive 6TB hd or can I use 2 x 3tb hd I already have? (something like backups on cd1 cd2 etc as I do on my laptop).
      Thank you
    • You would need to seperate the backup yourself. Automated backup from one single Array to two disks is not possible.

      Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
