I bought yet another new hard disk so that reduced the average power on hours slightly.
With more room in the server I figured its time to modernize the storage.
The ST2000DM001 is inexpensive and ideal for a NAS shared resource or even a boot disk.
I will be using on the workstation and then I can use the older 750GB for other work I have with computer chess. Once that is done then the disk will be added to the server storage pool.
Linux takes up a lot less room than Windows Server in virtual hard disk file. This is favorable when a lot of VMs are in use.
SAMBA is helpful in the server world too, it can integrate with a Linux server or Window Server data center easily.
BACKUP YOUR FILES, never leave it to chance.
