    • Hi, New to posting in these forums, so hello!   I used to run the original WHS V1, then WHS2011 on a MediaSmart server. I just built a new server platform with leftover parts from my gaming pc. I installed WHS2011 since I had purchased it years ago, but it looks like Windows Server 2012 R2 has become very inexpensive.  So, which is better for a Home Server? P.S. I believe the platform is plenty powerful for either of these as a home server. Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z AMD FX-8320E (Eight Core) 16 GB (4x4) DDR3 1866MHZ RAM 160GB SSD System Drive 6TB (3x2TB) Storage Drives ATI Radeon HD 3800 (Rarely use it)
    • Well, what are you upgrading from?  If it's Windows Home Server, are you using its client backup feature?  And if so, is this something you want to continue? What do you use your server for, and are there any new capabilities you want to take advantage of?
    • OK here is my problems I have an old dell 1430 server with a 256mb ssd drive and 2 3MB hdds. the ssd drive is where I would install win 10 . what do I have to do to make this (upgrade) to win 10 go as smoothly as "possible"? I can put the OS on a hdd also this is a store bought version of win 10 home.
    • I wouldn't go for Storage Spaces - there have been reports of issues when a disk goes bad (and I too have had that sort of problem). You can go down the RAID route if you have the hardware controller to support it - don't go for software RAID. Alternatively, have a look at Stablebit Drivepool which give you the flexibility of duplication at the folder level or across all storage. If you have data that doesn't need to be protected, you don't have to sacrifice the space for duplication of that folder. 
    • Like I said, you won't get the combined (aggregate) bandwidth to a single destination.   Torrenting makes multiple outgoing and can receive multiple incoming connections to and from multiple seeders and leechers (behaving more like the load-balanced scenario) in the best-case scenario, so it's one of the few applications that scale fairly well with WAN load-balancing, and if you're just downloading data, the torrent application can reassemble the whole torrent from the randomly received chunks from each seeder.  Torrent was almost designed to benefit from WAN load-balancing because of the way the P2P network was conceived. ...but that wouldn't work for streaming media or online gaming or VoIP where there's no mechanism to deal with out-of-order packets being sent and received, or the fact that it's still asymmetrically routed -- in that instance, you're still limited to the bandwidth of a single connection, you can just make more of them at a time on different paths.   802.3ad or LACP (Dynamic Link Aggregation) requires switching and routing hardware that's also LACP-compliant in order for it to work, but in that case, would be more like the aforementioned ISP IMUX connection than WAN load-balancing.   Your SpeedTest results are probably from burstable traffic over one connection, because a single SpeedTest run will only use one connection during the course of that test run, which is why it only shows a single public IP address. Sustained bandwidth testing with something like iPerf will show a more accurate picture.   Speedify would pretty much have to be tunneling all traffic as the "first hop" and reassembling traffic before going back out to the public Internet so that their VPN endpoint becomes your new public IP address out on the Internet; in essence becoming an ISP over an ISP -- if that's what it's actually doing.  While that may solve one issue, it would probably cause a drastic increase in latency to do so, and I doubt it would support streaming media very well.
