One Final Geek Post

I have now finished building my new file server and have created my new array. 4x500GB drives configured as RAID5 which gives me 1.5TB of storage! Lovely! Just look at the screenshot here. Look at all those lovely big numbers and look where it says TB instead of GB.

I am a happy geek tonight.

Obviously building the machine and installing an OS is only half the job. I still have to move all my Films/TV Shows/Music/Applications etc to the drive, install and configure Exchange 2007 which Tim says is great fun (?) and convert my firewall which is running on a physical machine at the moment into a virtual machine. All good fun which I will not bore you all with. :-)

Just know that I am a happy geek this evening!
