I read in some places that it’s best to use DX517 as its own separate Volume, and not to expand from Volume 1 on main unit. Is this really what most people do and recommend? I can do this...

    Out with the old, in with the new - 'Tis the Season - SSD

    Out with the old: In with the new: Another 4TB WD Blue to add to the volume - I've been very happy with these drives to date. It's only since the trading the RS1221+ fan noise for the Noctua silence do you get to fully appreciate the peace of SSDs. Usually when I open the door to the...
