    Am I on the right track?

    Hi all, I recently got hold of a Dell optiplex 9020 sff and I'm configuring it to use as a home server. I removed the hard drive and installed two SSDs, then I removed the optical drive and installed a third SSD. The optical drive has its own SATA power and data cables that were in the machine...

    So I've got a server that I've installed 3 SSD drives into. My intention is to use one of the drives as the 'root' drive, where software will be installed, home directories will live, etc. (btw this is for a home server where I'm basically the only user) The other two drives will be put into a...
