Will this work -- Start with 1 had drive and add more later

Hello all,

Very new here, hoping you can guide me.

Wanting to start with a 4 bay NAS and only one hard drive for $$$ sake. I know with that arrangement I can’t use RAID to have a back up. Wondering if there is a problem with, then adding a second HD and implementing a backup with RAID.

I know I am possibly not using the terminologies correct, but I hope you understand what I am saying.



Look at using SHR for your storage pool. It provides the flexibility of adding drives as you go and will provide you with data redundancy.
