    128GB on a petabyte scale box? and that much L2ARC? Even 256GB? (antiquated) ZFS rule of thumb of 1GB is per TB, and you need to dedicate ram to managing the L2arc as well (meaning if you don't have enough ram, the l2arc doesn't get used) This is going to be...... janky

    Um... can I ask a question if you can manage that many hard drives into a single volume as if it was one 1.20 PB hard drive instead of being I don’t know how many 16 TB hard drives on a pc using wizard can you do the same on an Apple computer using wizard or a.k.a. Paragon it’s basically the Wizard for the Apple computer do you know like 1024 bites to a kilobyte on a PC and 1000 bytes to a kilobyte on an Apple computer except now it’s wizard to the PC and Paragon to the Apple Computer I mean you did to those two weeks ago right it’s not like you filmed it one year ago and then decided to post it now or any thing and don’t take it the wrong way please I don’t assume IRgosrs are liars it’s just that I’m very low on space because my hard drive is too old but I discovered a tutorial which I will leave a link in this very comment later on you’ll see it in about maybe two minutes or something like that anyway it was basically a tutorial of how to merge hard drives into a single volume and I think you’ve seen that Hard drive lesson as well it just takes longer for you because well you do something even bigger than just a terabyte which is what I like about you and that’s why I subscribe to you in the first place in fact your the reason why I’m even asking for help to see if I can even succeed because you know stuck under the sea you don’t tend to get a lot of knowledge and I do you and only knowledge that I have are theories and other stuff but I just don’t know whether this quote on quote paragon is what I think it is or is just a hoax and it would be of no help you know the paragon and I know that you say later in the video that because I watched it before typing this comment that people tell you to stop being a data hog but that you said happily that you had an argument to that you said it was fun which I could actually fantasise and relate but my situation isn’t fun I’m running out of storage my microphone isn’t working any more because of it and I just don’t know what to do you know iMovie microphone and it’s no one’s fault except mine that I’m running out of storage so don’t blame anyone please I just want to know if what I came across is the true option to all off this Storage problem oh and you can actually release a video to answer my question in fact that would be better than just a comment if you don’t mind and in case you’re wondering I want nothing in return except for the answer whether it would be a yes meaning as in that the software it’s actually the white one or no meaning as in its not the correct software to use and that if there is a way please give me an answer but however if you do tell me it’s impossible to do it on an Apple computer I will accept it forever
