[Life] Network Storage Update

Posted: , By Patcoola

Last week I upgraded my network storage from 2.6TB to 5.3TB RAID 5. The process took about a week and 9 hard drives were shuffled. Now the majority of my files are now in a single place. Two of the old 1TB drives have been moved to a computer were it is used in RAID 0. I’ve cut down on two 1TB external drives for archives. Another old 1TB drive has been moved to another computer. The process was long as terabytes of data had to be relocated from external drives or other computers. Upgrading the network storage was very easy. Storage and access is much better now.

Big news, the search query has been greatly refined to just five generated conditions. The refinement is a big logic break through. I basically discovered that anything can be accurately found just by looking for the first and last word in the search terms. The spelling pattern now applies to words greater than four characters and has a simply applied “s” clause.
