OK. I added 8 GB of RAM to the HP MicroServer. I added my first 1TB hard drive and started migrating data now...the good old fashioned manual way.
I now understand completely why Drive Extender was so cool. First I wanted to transfer my Videos, and realized you have to assign the share folder to a specific drive.
Of course, this is how I am doing it right out of the box and I know there are plenty of addins and the always talked about Drive Bender....
If you're copying the data using Windows Explorer, that is an unreliable way to do it, especially on large quantities of data. Explorer was not designed for it. For example, if the copy fails part way through, how do you know where to pick up and continue?
There are a number of programs that are made for this purpose: RoboCopy of course (as I mentioned), but there's also TeraCopy, RoboCopy GUI, and RichCopy. I think anyone who's dealing with terabytes of data should become familiar with at least one of them. Just my 2 cents.
