I’m always on the hunt for better options to pool my SnapRAID array at home. I have found a new, great companion in MergerFS.
I’m often experimenting with different fileserver setups for home use. I’ve been very happy with ZFS for my mission critical files, but have found it’s inflexibity a little annoying with my home media server. As result, I’ve migrated to SnapRAID + mergerfs and it’s been working great. Here’s how I set it up.
