Thoughts on Home Media Servers



Category : Windows XP & 7 & 8
I recently got a hold of a Dell PowerEdge 1900 server and want to repurpose it as a home media server. Its got six 750gb hard drives, and I am leaning toward combining them all into a single virtual disk, RAID 10, carving off a 35gb and a 5gb partition for the OS and swap, then setting up the rest as a roughly 2.2tb data partition. But I am new to all this, so I really don't have a good grasp of the pros and cons of this set up.
Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?

I noticed that it places a unique identifier on your machine and does some other security tweaks. I also imagine
