I am in the process of setting up a NAS in my home. Currently, I have 4x WD Purple 4TB HDDs and one old LITEON CV8-8E128 (128GB) SSD.
I could find this thread in the forum, but it seems to be quite old and things may have changed since then, especially for the SSD.

I have been thinking about challenging myself and building my own NAS based on FreeBSD instead of using something like TrueNAS CORE.
There are already a number of good resources on the web about setting up Samba and NFS shares, creating automatic snapshots, ZFS replication and...
I've been running a FreeBSD NAS for a long time now with ZFS filesystems shared via NFS. In the past, macOS had no issues connecting, though the default when using Finder was NFSv3. Good enough for me.
But I've recently upgraded from Mojave (10.14) to Ventura (13.2) and have been having trouble...
I have freeBSD (13.1) installed on my small home server and am using it as a Virtual Machine Manager. I am using the excellent bhyve hypervisor to manage the VM's. The server is running on the amazing zfs filesystem.
I recently bought a NAS and want to backup all the bhyve-vms and...
is it possible to mount a shared network disk as /home between a Linux and a Freebsd computer?
I'm not sure what would happen if the two systems try to access the same data in /home.
Does anyone know if this is practical or possible without permition problems?
I have 12 disks in a raidz2 system (2 vdevs) that I use mostly as NAS for storage (backups and few movies).
Given that the system is basically write once, read many, I'd like to be able to use most of the available space.
ZFS by default is reserving 1/32 of space for operations, and I...
I am planning to build a 7/24 home NAS with emphasis on low power consumption, low (preferably zero) noise with 2x3.5" SATA HDDs but I could accept 2.5". The OS choice is not final yet it could be any of FreeNAS, OpenMediaVault, OpenBSD, NAS4free, TrueNAS, TrueOS. I know it is many but I...
I would like to share an article about Fanless FreeBSD Server.

For a NAS, the question is UFS or ZFS for main drive ?
I'm thinking about 2 options, which one would you recommend ?
It is a recent hardware, Intel i3. 8Go.
Main drive is an old 1To classical HDD while the 4 other one are new 4To 'NAS' HDD of 2 different brands.
Option 1 full ZFS...
I'm trying to spindown disks in a zpool to save energy costs. This concerns a home NAS setup. I've broken in down to a single disk.
Here I want the disk to go into standby mode after 20 minutes of idle time:
camcontrol standby ada2 -t 1800
What actually happens is the disk spins down...
I'm in the process of rebuilding my NAS at home. Currently this is the hardware that I've picked:
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-B150M-D3H
RAM: 4x Crucial CT8G4DFD8213 (32GB RAM total) (From Gigabyte's QVL)
CPU: Intel Core i3-6100T Boxed
SATA: Delock PCI Express Card > 10 x internal SATA 6 Gb/s...
