I have watched TechnoDadLife's guides and that is why I am here.
I bought an old Xeon 4 core server tower with 16 GBs ram.
I need a place to put my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4k camera footage and access/edit through my network.
So my questions are (and yes, totally noob kind of stuff):
1. Do I REALLY need to run RAID (the one that backs up the other drive)? Is that (or similar technology) what most here do? ARe hard drive failures that frequent?
2. There is a lot of opinions on filesystem types. So it probably doesnt matter unless I am doing cloning or things like that? I can just use Ext4 like in all of my other Linux installs?
Thanks for the help.
PS I had to select my OMV but I haven't installed it yet as I am in the purchasing phase.
