Here is the thread about the system from a long time ago.
I don't think I looked to see which port the two drives were actually connected to. Didn't make a difference.
I use a 2.5" laptop drive for most of my OMV installs. The speed of an ssd usually only helps the web interface.
Wow.. awesome to know I have that expandability if I need it down the road. Thanks for the share.
Would it be smarter/cleaner to get a PCI card to add a few SATA ports instead so I can keep the e-sata open for future use? If so, will any do off newegg or do I need to watch out for compatibility issues? This is my first Linux build so not sure if I need to be cautious when buying add on hardware for this box.
Thanks again for the quick and helpful feedback!
