    Using OS drive in new NAS

    I'm trying to upgrade my 4-bay DS918+ from using just 1x 10TB drive to setting up a 3x 10TB SHR RAID, plus use an old 2-bay DS716+ as a backup device. I only set the 918 up with one drive at the start as money was tighter and I thought I could build a RAID array over time, no realising I had to...

    Finding out drive useage.

    Just received a warning from my DS920 it's running low on storage on volume 3, didn't think much of it as assumed too many files in the downloads folder, but I've now gone to empty the folder and noticed my downloads is in volume 1, my media is in volume 2, I can't even see what I'm using volume...

    Can I do this with DS920+ Raid 1 and a plain drive

    I want to have 2 drives in a mirrored configuration and one drive as just a plain drive. The plain drive will just host a bunch of pictures, that are already backed up to blu-ray. After a lot of reading on the net, I know it can be done with TrueNAS but I am not sure how this would be done...

    Reset drive "critical" state

    Ok, bear with me as I know it might sound a bit as an odd request. I am looking for a way to reset the “critical” status of a drive without actually changing it. Yes, I know what I am doing (or I hope I do)… I have a virtualisation lab setup in which I have a lab machine running ESX and one...

    Drive Synology Drive Mobile 3.0 beta - findings

    Just installed the beta for Synology Drive mobile 3.0 on my Android device. I really like what I see. However it makes me wonder what the eventual strategy is of Synology, as this app now features very light Photos, DS Audio & DS Video features. Are they planning to migrate all mobile apps into...

    Synology Drive Client session data - 800MB?

    I have the Drive client installed on a Linux desktop and in the user's home directory I find ~/.SynologyDrive/data/session/ that has accumulated over 800MB of files in a year or so. Does anyone know the purpose of these files and whether I need to keep them around?

    SSD cache, M2D18 vs M2D20 considering drive compatibility

    I'm adding SSD cache to my RP2418RP+, and I'm looking at the M2D18 and M2D20. The M2D20 would be the obvious choice given the PCIe 3.0 performance except the drive compatibility list only including Synology drives, the maximum of which is 800GB. If I go for the older M2D18, I can find plenty...

    Hi, I have a DS218+ with two 12GB hard drives installed, the drives are currently configured to mirror each other. I'd like to stop mirroring the drives and change the RAID configuration so I have around 24GB of space available, the extra space is more important to me than having the files on...
