Best config for 12 1TB drives
The drives will be used to store WAV files, Blu-ray ISOs and RAW photo. These files will be accessed on a daily basis. Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

How many users? How much of the 12TB can you give up for redundancy? Assuming you have backups of them, and don't mind losing 1/2 storage, I'd go with a 6x2 mirror.

Thank you for your response. I am using the ZFS Filer for home use and I am the only user. I have backups on tape. I am more concerned with retaining more disk space.
