I've got an Intel server box that is a Xeon dual processor running two 2.0ghz dual cores, 2gb of memory... I picked it up from a friend brand new for $235 in hopes to either use it or double my money. Its sitting doing nothing (since I've bought it) and my workstation computer has about 2.5tb of data and of that data I figure about 1tb of it needs to be backed up. I'd like to come up with a 2tb RAID (I dont need the striping) but I'm not sure if its smarter to buy some SATA drives and apply it to the server box OR if I should buy one of the new external HDD devices that support RAID already. I dont need to take the data anywhere either... However it would be nice, but I dont see that being important if its portable... But I would like to access it on my network. Cliffs: Do I utilize this server or do I buy an external drive device? Thanks!
