I have a couple questions about moving from single HDD to RAID configuration - or something similar to RAID.
Right now I am using single Seagate ST4000DM004 (4TB, 5400 RPM, 256 MB) configured as NTFS drive. I have a new WD SE WD4000F9YZ (4TB, 7200 RPM, 64 MB) and I have plans to buy another one (or two) in nearly future. But for now I am thinking about moving these two drives to RAID configuration.
My questions are:
1. Should I use RAID1 for these two disk and convert it to RAID5 after getting another 4TB drive?
2. Is it possible to convert RAID1 to RAID5 under omv without loosing configuration/data/etc?
3. Should I use NTFS file system or other? I am using my omv for plex, samba, ftp - with Windows 10 machines, Android 11 and my TV - LG B8 (DLNA/PLEX);
4. Is it possibile to move all my existing data from Seagate drive to external one (for time of conversion data drivers) and move it back to created RAID structure without messing up OMV and all dependent setup? All samba/folder sharing/containers/etc settings need to be created again or just simple path updates?
I think that is all for now. Thank you in advance
