Re: [PLUG] BTRFS RAID massively broken

I'm running a 4 x 1Tb XFS LVM RAID5 (until I upgrade to 4 x 4Tb for RAID6) and it runs great.   No need to use mdadm directly anymore especially if you're on a current distro.  I'm doing this on Arch and Lubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Glad i've stayed away from BTRFS,   I'm still on ZFS / FreeNAS for my storage array.


At home, I've have 4x 2 TB disks in btrfs raid6. For the last week, this has been my mood:

On a more serious note, I'm gonna have to buy an additional external HDD to transfer the data off. Any suggestions on what I should use to replace it? I run Arch Linux. Is ZFS-on-linux stable? Or should I just use mdadm?
