    DS920+ UPS Suggestions Needed

    I just bought a brand new DS920+ which I like alot. Anyway, my better judgement is telling me to get a dedicated UPS to protect the device. The NAS is connected to an Ethernet switch, which is connected to a Nest Wifi Router, which is connected directly to a Version FiOS ONT. I'm assuming that...

    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...

    I know this is pretty basic stuff, but I've not done it before and don't want to mess it up! Setup: DS920+ with 4 x 4TB in SHR. I have bought 2 x 16TB to increase the volume size (whilst maintaining data). I have seen some conflicting advice, one says to use the "replace" functionality in...
