I think I might have answered my own questionj - seems we need 3 or more disks for raidz - (n-p)*x gives 1TB usable. reliability isn't that important, and they are new disks. I suppose ccd would be better in this scenario? -- John _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
