    Hi, I have been using Synology for 12 years. First with a DS411+ model which is still functional; I recently changed my fan. Professionally I use two DS1621+ models with which I am very satisfied. I had a very bad experience with the DS1515 models before; two times! There have already been...

    Migration from DS218+ to DS1621+

    I have Synology DS218+ and I'm planning to buy DS1621+. If I just put my disk (I have only 1 volume with btrfs) from 218+ to 1621+ what can I expect? Will new NAS overwrite existing DSM and keep all the data intact? If I loose some of the system setting that's OK, as long as all the shares and...

    DS1621+ as a plex server to play 4K remuxes via Nvidia shield ? (no transcoding ever, direct play only)

    Hello, I'm eyeing the DS1621+. I'll use it as a storage / plex server only. I know the DS1520+ is cheaper but I like the improved build quality on the DS1621+ and the extra bay. Would it do a good job in my case ? Or is the lack of integrated GPU a real problem ? Thank you !

    Windows 11 on DS1621+ not allowed to be installed

    Pulled down the official Windows 11 Pro ISO from Microsoft and created the VM. After powering on the VM and then running the Windows install, Windows 11 says that it cannot be installed because it does not meet the system requirements. It seems that the TPM 2.0 requirement keeps the official...

    Are these 10TB Ultrastars supported in DS1621+ ?

    Hello! I have found the drives below at BH, but unclear if they are compatible or supported. Seems WD has many naming conventions. From reading comments they are retail HUH721212ALE604 and only HUH721212ALE600 is supported on Synology's list. Thing is, I can't find HUH721212ALE600 anywhere. I...

    Hey all, Is it possible to use the E10M20-T1 expansion card with a DS1621+? I’d like to upgrade to 10GBE and use the SSD cache on the card for a volume on my DX517 (using the internal SSDs for the cache on a volume on the 1621 itself). I wondered if anyone had tried and got it working? Best...

    Synology DS1821+ / 1621+ and Toshiba MG07ACA14TE

    I would like to buy the Synology DS1821+ or DS1621+ and run 6 x Toshiba MG07ACA14TE in Raid 6. The Toshiba MG07ACA14TE is currently the cheapest enterprise hard disk (with 14TB) and costs around 300 euros retail. The Blackblaze HD statistics show good values for a similar Toshiba model...

    DX510 and DS1621+

    Has anyone tried plugging a DX510 into a DS1621+ (or DS1821+ I guess). Does it work? I know it's not supported officially. Even the DX513 is not supported but has been reported to work? Would it cause any problems? Thanks!

    DS412+ to DS1621+ migration

    Well I’m finally replacing my well aged DS412+ with the DS1621+. The current DS412 is Ext4 and I’m going to be using BTRF on the new NAS. That being said I need to migrate about 8TB from old to the new and I’m dreading copying 8TB. What are the best options for a speedy migration? I fear the...

    USB hub for DS1621+

    I just recently upgraded from DS1512+ to 1621+ and noticed it only has 3 USB ports vs 6 ports on 1512+. I have 3 USB drives and I also need to connect a UPS. Did anybody had to use a USB hub. Any recommendations? Looks like DS1621+ has USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports. TIA

    RAM for DS1621+

    So I bit the bullet and ordered the DS1621+ to upgrade from my older DS916+ ... the NAS comes with only 4g RAM (shame on Synology) ... adding another 8g ECC module is over $200 US. Does anyone have source to look at compatible memory that would be less expensive? thanks ... Stephen
