If you get interested in it again, let me know, keen to see how it all plays out.
I installed ... some program (I think it was zoneminder), ran into a couple of issues, got those sorted out but decided the old IP camera I had sucked and went about looking into POE switches and cameras to suit. I never got around to actually finishing that project though.

Finally looking to jump into purchasing. Shoving extra drives in to the older models/cases is appealing, but I'd also like the extra CPu grunt from the Gen8 (even if only celeron) so that transcoding and usenet processing don't make everything grind to a standstill.
Not sure I have the time/energy to dedicate to setting up ZFS tho', so I'll probably be sticking with Windows and storage spaces or something. Just not sure how to go about it - Win10? Think I read somewhere that non-server Windows installs crap out due to unsupported drivers : \
I'd consider maybe a Gen9 but I haven't seen anything about them in microserver form : <

Depending how often your data changes, Look into Ubuntu and SnapRaid.
It made me wet my pants with excitement, and buy 3x 3TB toshiba drives, and then proceed to wet myself again.
Wherever you go in life, watch out for Scythe, the tackling IT support guy.

Will probably be majority AV media with a selection of personal stuff both individually archived and in backup images.
