At what point do you not repair?
The last time I rebuilt, I considered just getting a NAS and running everything from laptops but I chose to rebuild a separate PC and used the pooling funtion in windows to pool all the HDDs into a large disc, I believe it has some redundancy.
Most recently the PC has acted up. (constantly beeping (i think that meant RAM issues) i swapped the slots the RAM dimms were plugged into and it booted up again. Then recently i rebooted the computer and now it's in a boot loop where it can never get past the bios page.
So I could buy some new ram (DDR3) to see if it fixes it, but I am concerned this is like a car - at a certain age, other things start failing. The last rebuild was initiated by a PSU failure, and ended up replacing everything. what do you think/recommend on rescuing and continuing to buy older parts to keep it going or should i just move to a NAS (i'd still have to figure out how to get the data off the pooled drives)?
Thanks in advance for your RFD wisdom!
