2x old Seagate "1TB Click of Death" Drives (With Patched firmware: ST-31000340AS) were brought out of retirement to create SHR, to keep costs down.... Years ago they were a Raid 0 on video editing system... V7 on 720+ says they aren't Officially supported, but is using them.... Ram bought used here working well, too...

Better drives and Cache might be added later...

3/4" Velcro Dots added (1 per drive) as sound deadening..

First day once set up: Multiple shared folder sync's between 2x V6 NAS's and V7 (both directions) that's working without issue.... My V7 experiences on a budget begins!
