I have just setup unRAID on my local machine
I5 8400
16gb ram
Samsung 250gb m.2 ssd
2x 4tb
1x 3tb
1x 2tb
1x 6tb parity drive
I have setup PlexGuide as a vm
Is it better to run Ubuntu as the Os instead of unRAID and not worry about raid?

Depends on what your doing, if your just accessing your gsuite and not feeding it from your home server, then its better just to run a couple of scripts to mount gsuite and use containers. If your uploading you can still do that without Pgblitz but its easier with Pgblitz.

There is a a extensive post on the unraid forums with user scripts. If you need help with the scripts just pm me. The post on the forums is for encrypted but I modified the scripts for non encrypted.


unRAID used ZFS raid.

That's a stripe raid btw split raid
