3.15 inch OneHalf and the tale of long-tailed !ant¡-Virus distribution
Many years ago, after I got bitten by OneHalf, I've developed some kind of backup procedure. It wasn't perfect at the time, but it was working and got better over several years. I don't consume antivirus, and I disable...

Finding myself at a crossroad.
Need to transfer my home files to a new zpool with bigger drives but not sure if I should get smaller but more cost-effective HDD and wait for SSD prices to drop in the next 5 years or so, OR should I get bigger and costlier HDD for future-proofing...
Hey you all, i had a problem with one of the HDDs in my freenas and needed to change it to a new one.
Since i changed it the freenas doesn´t recognize my pool.
I am adding screenshots.
Thank you all for the help.
I'm contemplating the idea of a replacement for my currently hosted 1U server. This server holds 4x 3.5" HDD and 1x 2.5" SSD, with this topology:
- first zpool ZRAID1 mirror 2x 1To + SSD L2ARC
- second zpool ZRAID1 mirror 2x 2To
My ideal next server would have 8x 2.5" SATA slots, and 1x...

Hopes community doing great. We're experiencing disk errors "UDMA_CRC_Error_Count" via smartctl on all of our drives (12 x 3TB) from quite a time now and after trying everything mentioned in this post, we're still not able to diagnose it. Here is the log of smartctl ...
I setup this HDD with zfs but no swap, now even with 32GB of ram I am running into issues related to swap.
I created a swap file but I've been told that's a bad idea and can lead to deadlocks. My goal is to eventually debug the programs that I am using to see how to lower their memory usage but...
I guys, hope you can help me. I have a HDD which was previously in a RAID array. Now I wanna used it alone as Master (IDE hdd)...

I have a hp pavilion dv6 2170ee notebook (an intel core i7 64 bit system of course) So I downloaded amd64 dvd1 iso image and burned it to a dvd. I checked the SHA256 checksum too and it was fine.
Here's what happens:
1- I choose "dvd rom" from bios star-up menu and just after reading the dvd...
I'm planning to set up a Raspberry Pi server and, among other things, use hard disks with USB adapters for NAS with RAID. I want the disks to spin down after some time of inactivity. I experimented with an USB adapter and one SATA disk on my x86_64 desktop, and using ataidle -s /dev/da4...
I have FreeBSD 10.2 release installed on a server which I sometimes use as a NAS. For this purpose I have a separate ZFS pool on separate disks. I bring them online only if I need them to save power. On the other side I have written a small script which automatically export the ZFS pool and send...
I have a home server for a years on FreeBSD.
But, after last hardware upgrade ( hdd old 64GB, new 250GB the same rpm and from the same brand ) and software upgrade to FreeBSD 10.2, there is a one big problem with speed of response reading from my HDD. Its extremely slow. I can uploading...
I understand that the label is stored somewhere inside the disk, but where?
The handbook says:
but where exactly is that? Is this the MBR?
I admit I'm a newbie as to the topology of HDDs, so any information I get I'll have to research to understand the answer.
This question is for me to...
