I have a Raspberry Pi that I’m thinking of turning into a NAS, mostly for backup storage, as a place to put Borg backup repositories.
I currently have an old 2TB SSD hooked up to the Rpi, and it actually works fairly well. How we I’m not sure how much life it has left in it, so I’m exploring options especially around Black Friday to maybe set up something more reliable.
If I wanted to get started with something small, what are good size drives? Should I just get 2 and do a raid 1? Should I get shuckable drives and build a PiNAS enclosure?
