Post started building my file server
so now that i have a couple spare drives, i started building a file server today, its not complete, but it is running. so now i have a place to redirect my folders for my AD account. but the OS is on a 400gb, which i'm going to image and replace with a 250, and my storage is the 750gb that just came out of my main desktop after being replaced by a 1tb. the 750 is temporary until i get some 2tb drives

but the specs are

Athlon X2 4800
2 gb kingston hyperx
asus a8n-sli premium
some low profile radeon card

and its running server 2008 R2

Mine's a bit better :mrgreen:

E5200 w/ Noctua NH-U12 (passive cooling!)
GA-EP43-UD3L
4x1GB OCZ Platinum DDR2-800
XFX GT240 512MB (for folding)
2x 500GB (15GB OS/rest storage)
2x 1TB (media)
1x 250GB (torrents)
1x 500GB (extra space)
Antec EarthWatts 380D
Antec 900

Running Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. No AD though since my parents and brother are fine without being managed. They aren't total retards.

yeah, i still need a psu for this thing, but all i can find for 2U power supplies that i can afford is an iStar, and i know nothing about them, so i'm hesitant. but the plan is to get 4x 2Tb drives in this thing

not to mention i still need to find a place to buy server rails to get my servers in the rack, i've been lazy i guess

and the AD is mostly for myself, to redirect my profile on my windows machine so i have access to my stuff on whatever machine i log into, that way every time i do a test install and download stuff on a system, it goes on the server, and i don't have to worry about wiping drives i use just for whatever

I guess that could be helpful. Though on my mom's PC, I just have her Documents/Pictures/Music folders manually relocated to a network share. Granted her AppData and other stuff would be lost, but that's not too important in this case.

And shouldn't all server PSUs be reliable? I'd hope there's no el-cheapo manufacturers of them.

yes, i've done a little more cleaning. slowly getting there. most of the big stuff is out of the way, the most of that is boxes of little stuff that needs more organizing, but i've got lots of little stuff kicking around that needs organizing too
