    Hyper Backup rotation of backups troubles

    I have a Hyper Backup to a Local Storage USB. I run it nightly and I want to it to rotate but not keep far too many versions of my files. I'm using Smart Recycle and as the 8TB drive was filling up it became clear 256 versions was madness. So I set it to 12 versions, which is more than enough...

    DSM 6.2 Active Backup log files

    Hi, After restoring a full drive I get a warning that the restore task was only partially completed. I can see from the log file that - most likely - the path names for a number of the files were too long. However, retrieving these files by referring to the log file under "activities" is a...

    How to fix a stupid mistake replacing old volume with new

    On my DS2411+ I had 2TB drives in use and started seeing more and more failures, more often from newer drives than the old ones. So I bought myself some 4TB Red Plus drives to replace them. I went from 10x2TB to 3x4TB given most of my data is on my other NAS now. I had migrated (or at least...
