I've recently bought the Pegasus32 R4 with 4x4TB drives. I like it, but 16TB aren't enough. So I am gonna upgrade with 4 Toshiba MG07TE 14TB drives.
Here comes the thing: I get them just before I need the RAID for a new job - which I need the higher capacity for - otherwise I wouldn't take the risk of changing a running system. Long story short: Has anybody experience in matters of how much time it takes to initialize 4 14TB drives and create a new array?
Thank you so much for your help and happy new year.
P.S. Another thing that came up: What about the block/stripe size? I'm gonna store Video Data on it and there's gonna be barely files with less than 5GB. I am wondering if it makes sense to use something like 1MB or to stay safe with 256 or 512kb...
