fcuking w00t! 600GB raid5 goodness!! (pics)


it worked. after 28 hours of ghosting drive images my 6 drive WD1200JB RAID5 array is complete!


used ghost2003 this time and it doubled the speed. dont know if it was because of 2003 or because of the new controller/array but oh well, it only took 8 hours this time.



yes thats a shitload of drives packed in there, used all available bays (minus the bottom one since its stupidly occupied by the cases usb ports)


a cabling nightmare but theres little choice


everything back together and ready to go


600GB of usable space!!!!!!! (approximately)
:-D

controller used is the 3ware 7850 (7500-8)
just have to install the monitoring software and i should be set for good

well...wasnt cheap
drives are cheaper than youd think though
i did a bunch of deal hunting and rebate work, im guessing 400 or less for all drives
3ware card was 250 though, no getting around that price

Remind me quickly again what kind of error correction RAID 5 has? All I can seem to remember is 0 and 1 and some combination of the two.
