    DSM 7.1 DS218play HDD Upgrade Question

    I want to upgrade the HDD in my ds218play. My question is multipart, so please bear with me. The NAS has 2 HDD bays. One of them has a 4TB Seagate Ironwolf HDD. The other bay is vacant. RAID is not configured. I want to install 2 8TB Ironwolf Pro HDDs: one in each bay and use RAID 1 (the NAS...

    After a system partition failure and just avoiding major data loss, I'm looking for some advice on the best configuration/RAID setup for my DS218Play!

    Hey everyone - hope you've been keeping safe and well :) I recently experienced a System Partition Failure due to a dislodged drive - therefore reverting the volume to Read only status.

    Hey all, Hope you've been keeping safe and well! I'm slowly getting through my to-do list, and one of them is trying to address a very slow web interface/very slow loading times for apps & accessing files. Sometimes the loading times are slower than my previous Synology (DS212j) so I'm a bit...

    DS218play + DSM 7 + Photos

    I have been using DSM 7 beta for a while now and enjoying Photos as my Google Photos replacement. I have been using a paid app called PhotoSync that uploads photos and creates folders based on the date the pic were taken. Updated DSM (& Photos I presume) a couple days ago and since then, no...

    How to set up DS218play WITHOUT the Internet?

    From what I can gather, my question regards almost the opposite of what most people are interested in doing, today, with NAS ... but here goes: I'm new to NAS, but selected Synology's DS218play as—what looked to me—like a good 'beginner' NAS. The problem I immediately ran upon is that all...

    Synology DS218play and WD Gold Drives

    Hi all: I recently got a Synology DS218play NAS and 2 x10TB WD Gold drives. BIG MISTAKE! Everything works fine, of course, but the WD Gold drives are NOISY! Constant thumping/knocking noise amplified to unacceptable levels by the cabinet location of the NAS. I have 2 WD Red drives (older...
