I scored a 5 bay expander for my Synology DS1019+ on Ebay as an open box.

Scored three 8tb WD shuckers on Prime Day.

Decided to change the SHR (RAID) from SHR-1 to SHR-2, it's like RAID 6 but Synologies version of it, and add a hot spare.

Kicked off the change yesterday, 24 hours later it's 7% done. Looks like this will take a while. :fly:

You paid almost $700 for a fucking drive bay?

Well, there really is one born every minute.

Unlike someone who has to go buy new shit every fuckin' week, I pick something that suits my needs, and stick with it until it's time to upgrade (as determined by the number of hours on the drive, as opposed to whenever Amazon sells some cut-rate bullshit or I see something shiny on eBay).

I have 25TB of 720p.

:nev:
my 720p number is greatly reduced, and 480p is almost gone. Radarr/Sonarr have been amazing for replacing things invisibly over time. My "deleted movies" folder of stuff that got replaced with 12mbps or better 1080p or better is about 100-300 gigs a week

Yeah, I mean, I know I'm supposed to care - but I just don't. As long as its 720p, and not a cam (for movies), I'm good. And all my remote streaming is limited to 720p anyway.

edit: Maybe it helps that we *maybe* watch 3 movies a year.
