(This fourth part of the article will be focusing on information all about unRAID.)

There are lots of great features which un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks offer to its patrons. This combines several drives into one volume just like the Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive/Independent Disks. These un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks have redundancy which is built-in like the formats of its opposite counterpart. If for a reason a drive fails, any duplication you made to the un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks may be restored through a committed disk for parity by integrating.

You need not to enlarge the un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks with the presence of drive pairs in contrast to many configurations of Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive/Independent Disks. At any time if you may choose, you may add a different drive that comes in any size to the range. The space of the drive will instantly be added to the storage total tally in the system when you add a different drive if the storage you have runs out. The un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks may be compared to that of a Data Robotics in this situation. Remember that you may do the enlargement of up to 20 drives for the un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks from lower figure of 9 drives.

You may take the un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks out when it experience troubles and change to a new drive if that is necessary. The new drive will be instantly filled with old drive’s contents by the un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks. Take note that a single drive failure can be survived through the system of un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks that goes along with its redundancy. You may still recover the data you have from the drives which survives even though there is failure from several drives because each drive has files directories on it from which it is the best thing to know that data is still intact. You may also do add functions you want similar to an app as one of Data Robotics terms.

You may be overwhelmed with this, but you need to know that it is absolutely affordable to have the system for un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks. Even if you have multiple drives, you still have the option to purchase a Central Processing Unit, a case, motherboard, and power supply. You may also took out drives in excess from your platform and place them in a case intended for un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks or you may do it after taking out all the drives of all your external walls.

You can do expansion of up to 38 terabytes and permits one drive at a time expansion without you having to reconstruct the whole system and all your data will not be lost when you use a tool with the technology of the current drive with un-Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks. The system may surpass a drive failure without losing any data because everything is being backed up.
