Pi-hole & OMV - Enclosure options for HDDs and the feasibility using two USB hubs to connect 4-8 HDDS

I've been thinking about building a NAS because I don't have any proper backups of my data. I've looked about at existing small NAS boxes and they offer limited redundancy or upgrade options and the ones that do, cost a lot. So I wanted to make my own. I think it would be a nice little project for a...

Can we run VirtualBox on the Pi?

I found a thread (link below) that suggests it is possible as theres links to a dropbox file, but it seems the thread is no longer kept active and nor is the file. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2961 Woul...
