I recently (approx 6 months ago) built a new V1 box as my old one was dying - in the anticipation of Vail, I built the box on a 64Bit platform as I wanted to be able to upgrade when the new version was bedded in.
I am now thinking of making the jump, and pricing in the UK is better than expected, I can get OEM for under £90 (sub$150).
My current box has a Corei3 running at 2.9Ghz with 4Gb of DDR3 ram. I have a 250Gb Drive which hosts the system partition and a further 2 x 2TB HD's.
I have approx 800Mb of free space, but I have duplication turned 'on' for most of my shares.
I also have a seperate NAS box which has an empty 500Gb drive, and further 250Gb available on a seperate USB Drive.
I want to run 2011 on my existing box, but need a strategy to get everything off in a safe an timely manner, then rebuild the box and re-introduce the existing drives.
I am considering buying a further 250Gb drive and using it along with the existing one as a mirror for my system drive on the new box, and possibly adding a further drive for storage probably a further 2TB.
I am liking the sound of the Datacore Harmony Add-in as I do enjoy the single Pool drive of Version 1 and would like follow a similar principle no my new box.
Any guidance with regard to a migration strategy will be much appreciated.
