Raspberry Pi Media Server Series #3 – External Drives

Raspberry Pi External Drives

Introduction

This is the third part of Raspberry Pi Media Server series, if you haven’t read our previous part, here’s where we discussed securing SSH server on Raspberry Pi. In this post, I’m going to share how I setup external drives on my Raspberry Pi. Here’s a glimpse on my setup before you decided to read this entire lengthy page:

  • Two hard drives in BTRF RAID1 format for data redundancy
  • Mounted on /mnt and not hanging when the drives are not connected
  • Monthly auto scrub to repair corrupted data
