Many of you are looking for parts for your Unraid Server and to be honest, the beauty of Unraid is its simplicity and the latest and greatest parts are no required to build a secure and reliable archival backup Unraid Server solution.

The Unraid Server that I highlighted in my recent book “How To Create A Digital Fort Knox – Backing Up Your Digital Life” was built using old parts, some over a decade old, procured from my garage!

This Unraid Server has been running 24/7 365 days a year for over a year with ZERO issues and it cost next to nothing to build minus the hard drive costs used in the build.

This being said, many of you have asked for advice on part options to build your own so I’ve put together a curated list of parts on my Amazon Shop that you can visit.

If you have any questions about Unraid you can go to the Unraid WIKI page or visit my creative discord server at and check out the Unraid channel.


Many blessings to you and your family and thank you for your continued support!
