I recently got a few (5) hard drives to turn my home server into a NAS with trueNAS scale and my idea is to have 4 usable and 1 for redundancy, my question is… How does RAID work, like what is RAID 0, RAID 5, software RAID etc, and does any of that even matter for my use case?

    TRIM is SSD technology and SMR is spinning-disk technology, you wouldn’t find them on the same drive, would you? 🤔 Or do you mean a hybrid drive?
