Hi guys, 
thank you for the great show. I started listening after I chose freeNAS over synology for my home NAS and server and looked around if there were any podcasts on BSD.

I have several questions, but I will refrain from bombarding you in one mail and split the question over several episodes ;)

At the moment I run a 5 disk ZFS-Z1, with 1 SATA port free for drive replacement. I started with 2TB drives and expanded it to 4TB drives about 2 years ago. Now I got a new space warning (80% full). Upgrading to 6 or 10 TB drives will cost a small fortune. Boy I am wondering if I should use 2 3 disk Z1 arrays? I do worry about data safety because of the striping of arrays. And I don't need the added speed. 
Of course I know I cannot migrate the data directly, and will migrate it through an other drive. 

Thanks André
