    Removing stale Active Backup data from the storage pool

    I am currently using Active backup to backup some laptops and also some virtual machines. Some of the virtual machines no longer exist and I no longer need their backup data. When they are no longer being backed up, does their data automatically get purged from the storage pool? If not, how do I...

    USG not letting data through...

    Good evening :) Got a bit of a tricky one (at least for me! :D) Was using my Fritz router with my ADSL and could access my home assistant, on my RaPi 4 fine. Then I installed my USG and made my Fritz box bridge to my USG, port forwarded, again, worked fine. Today I got my fibre installed...

    Data Scrubbing.... how long can it take?

    As you can see from the attached it looks like data scrubbing has taken over 2 days to complete. This is on a NAS with 7.8Tb capacity which is around 60% full.

    Recover Data from removed storage pool

    Hi everyone. First post here on Synoforum so hope this is the right spot. I have a DS916+ which had 4x 4TB drives in a Raid 5 config. I purchased 4x 8TB drives to upgrade the system as was at 92% of capacity. So was going to simply just replace one drive at a time and let system rebuild but...

    DSM 6.2 [Log Centre] Clearing old syslog data entries - IP-addresses / hostnames - in listing for overview.

    First post here. I have no clue how and where to clear all the old data entries from past networks and/or devices. To select 3 hostnames for the overview, I have to scroll thru a long list of non existing (anymore) IP-addresses and/or hostnames. I reached out to Synology, but they came back...

    Have I lost all my data?

    Long story short, I swapped my HDs from a DS218j to a newly purchased DS220+. In that process the DS220+ started beeping and said that disk 2 was having issues (DSM 7 was set up on the new NAS.) It told me to "remove" the HD from storage pool which is what I did and now it looks as though I have...

    😂 There should be a badge awarded for FINALLY completing builds/rebuilds & data scrubs!

    I mean I know I'm being petty, but builds/rebuilds and data scrubbing have taken over 3 weeks of the 3 weeks I've had this system. There should be a badge! 😉 Just my $.02! Jann

    How to Read Pre-Existing Data from an Independent Hard Drive

    Hello, I have a synology NAS with an up and working RAID array. Independently from that I also have an internal SATA drive with data on it, from which I would like to read data through the NAS (since I lack an enclosure to connect to it), and transfer data towards the raid volume. I found a...

    Wipe data off removed hard drives

    So I replaced 4 of my 5 bay DS1513 volumes with 8T drives from 3T drives, I left Vol I as a 3T drive since it doesn't host data. My question is in order to wipe my old 3T drives do I have to put them back in the diskstation? I bought a hard drive flat docking station, so I could hook up thru a...

    Synology Drive Client data taking most of my laptop SSD

    I have a DS220J with 6TB drives (i.e. a mirrored pair) - it's set up with straightforward default installation/set-up options (I'm new to all this). I use Linux Mint on a couple of PCs and I've installed Synology Drive Client 3.0.1 on both. One is a desktop with a 2TB drive and all is well...

    Backup to USB showing less data than expected

    Hi I've used Hyper Backup to backup my entire NAS (DS 218J) to a USB drive using the Local (single version option) and it copied the full 2.5TB of data to the USB drive. However when I use the Local (multi-version option) with encryption I get a backup size of just 1.4TB - what's going on? I...

    Migrating data with a switch and link aggregation and method of migration?

    Hello all, I’m laying my plans out for moving from a ds1815+ to a ds1821+. My first question (and probably a dumb one) is, if I link two ports on each box to a managed 8-port switch will it speed up the transfer of data or is it still dependent on the router (the one cable from the switch to the...

    Backup Data From Remote NAS to Local

    Hi! I'm currently running a Hyper-Backup task that moves date from NAS A (DS216+) to NAS B (DS211j). Using rsync, this works perfectly well! Since NAS B is shutting down regularly (because of security reasons and serves for backup tasks only) I would swap the backup direction. NAS B should...

    Move disk and keep data?

    My good old DS214 was killed by lightning a few days ago. The powersurge travelled trough the ethernetcable, and killed most other wired equipment. The DS214 powers on, but the network interface is fried. Time to buy a new, similar model. So my question is: If I use the same disks from the 214...

    Backup data (selected share) from one NAS to another over the InterNet

    What is the best approach to backup one share of a volume from my home NAS to an off-site NAS over the InterNet? The source NAS is a DS1821+ and the target one is a DS1817+ I would like the procedure to automatically synchronize the share from source to target, and keeping X generations or Y...

    Symbolic links for Docker containers with data on an SMB share

    I want to be able to deploy Docker containers on a seperate Ubuntu VM I have running on my DS718+ . But I want the persistent data mounted with -v to live on /volume1/docker of my NAS itself anyhow, so all this data is automatically included in my HyberBackup schedules. So if we take this...
