I'm playing around with OMV for the first time in years. Needless to say, this project didn't have all these options back when it began... I was curious if anyone is running (or has played with) this type of setup?
Basically, I have 4-5 HDDs, of varying size, formatted Btrfs. They're all pooled together with UnionFS - with the exception of one of the largest HDDs. Then, I have them set up with SnapRAID; one HDD is for parity and the others are data/content HDDs. The OMV server is holding MP4s.
I'm not looking for snapshots or anything fancy. I just figured Btrfs can handle bit rot whenever a file is read. However, not all my movies are read all the time. Years can go by without watching a movie in my collection so I figured SnapRAID could then be scheduled to run weekly or monthly, catching bit rot. I've lost a few movies over the years and had to dig through my box of DVDs in the basement and re-rip them...
Am I over-complicating the mousetrap or is this not a horrible idea?
