Downloading via newsgroups at near gigabit and doing RAR/PAR work can make a mechanical single disk system grind. Once you get backed up, it gets messy quickly.i use a 5400 rpm harddrive. i do not have that much stuff downloading so i would say it's more of what you use
It’s funny u say that. When my hard drive tapped out before, Plex would stutter and speeds would slow to 20 while the unpacking and repairing took foreverDownloading via newsgroups at near gigabit and doing RAR/PAR work can make a mechanical single disk system grind. Once you get backed up, it gets messy quickly.
Wrote up an article in regards to just some basic idea info: https://plexguide.com/threads/your-hard-drive-matters.293/RAR/PAR work (especially PAR) will hurt a single mechanical disk system. Normal practice was to split the work over multiple drives where possible and try and configure your client to play nice.
No reason why you can't, but i'd argue that putting Plex in a docker and that docker running from SSD is a much more efficient way of doing it. Media is all but static once processed, the main benefits of RAID being higher IOP's and potential redundancy seem somewhat moot when you have unlimited cloud storage available (unless you have connection issues).
