Re: Freenas?

The data I want to make available is already backed up somewhere else. So now that I come to think of it; in that case running RAID would be a bit redundant. Using RAID level 1 (or higher) results in a loss of storage capacity due to the mirroring or striping. Also the HD's I want to use are not all same sized, the smallest HD would determine the size of the system, so again this would result in a great loss of capacity. So I can better use the 'JBOD' system (Just a Bunch Of Discs).

Yes that would be bittorrent and/or FTP.
