That will not be necessary, thanks. Already got a mirror FTP and a google drive backup.

There is only 97 GB free though so I'll need to purchase some more HD for the FTP. Currently its all stored on a raid1 array with 2x2TB disks, so if anyone ever though about a small donation but haven't yet, now would be a good time for it (see first page) =)

Disks ordered. I wanted to thank those that donated. 20% of the cost of the new disks will be payed by donations received. Pretty good if you ask me (not used to getting donations, heh).

I tried creating an easier way to donate, but its not that easy with a personal Paypal account. You can do it with a premium account, but those can not be created anymore it seems as paypal is moving away from them. That leaves a business account which I am not interested in...

I found an ugly way to do it. Please test this one if you have plans to donate.

Otherwise, the email is eab at grandis.nu

Thanks!

We're going from 2x2TB to 2x4TB in Raid1, so 4TB usable space in total. I could go for 2x6TB or even 2x10TB, but I don't think that is really needed. Plus I can't really afford it right now =)

I have 2×2T but one disk is for backing up another. I can make raid0 out of them if needed.

All very important stuff when you have a maintenance opportunity window; they don't come around often. Nice work!!!

You are most welcome =)

I've started a rsync from the old to the new disks so I'll let that run overnight.
