I currently am running Windows 7 on one hard drive partition with 87 GB there is 23 GB left on that hard drive. I have a second 160 GB hard drive full of data.
I want to turn this into a Home Server for mostly media files.
Any suggestions on what the best OS is to use and how to partition the hard drives?
I was wondering if it is a good idea to replace a hard drive in a (fairly) system-critical database server after a certain number of years of use, before it dies. For example, I was thinking of replacing a hard drive after 3 years of use. Since I have many hard drives across servers, I could stagger which hard drives are replaced.
looking in this section of DSL forum I was hoping for basic instructions on simply: How to do dsl-hdinstall? I'm using the embeddable dsl and I have a second hard drive in my computer; I want to install to the second hard drive. I already have the hard drive erased.
