    5 to 6 vs. 6 to 7?

    For those who lived through the migration from DSM 5 to 6, how does it compare to the 6 to 7 move? Ease of migration. Users confidence and enthusiasm. Bugs encountered. Gained (or lost) features—was it a bigger jump (features and improvements) from 5 to 6? And of course, how “streamlined” was...

    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...

    SHR1 to SHR2 migration

    Hi, I'm migrating from DS220j (2x4T SHR1) to DS920+ (4x4T SHR2). I'm just curious how long it's supposed to take. I moved 1st disk from DS220 to the new DS920 and added 3 new disks. Then I Repaired SHR1 - it took about a day. Then, I changed SHR1 to SHR2 and it takes ages. It runs 0.008% per...

    HDD Migration / just swapping drives? (DS916+ > DS920+)

    I'd like to ask the collective experience : I want to upgrade my DS916+ to a new DS920+ No change of HDDs, I just want to take the existing HDDs and move them to the new NAS.

    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...

    Screwed up the migration from DS216+ to DS920+

    Hi I apparently didn't research all of this thoroughly enough because I've had 1 issue after another... First off I attempted to the use DS920+'s migration software which kinda sorta worked but rather than move both drives out of the DS216J, I only removed one to keep the other in a "safe...

    Another NAS migration question

    I have a DS918+ with 4 HDD's that I want to transfer over to my new RS1219+. When I first hooked up the RS1219 and went to synology's "find me" website, it found the NAS, but wouldn't let me proceed with installation because I didn't have any drives installed. Aside from the 4 drives I want to...

    I'm going to be transitioning my 2Tb drives from my DS918+ to an RS1219+. I have read through synology's migration tutorials and it looks relatively simple. I'm going to make sure to backup my configuration as well as hyperbackup the whole system. I do have several questions: 1. It says to...

    Migration and files backup: the recycle needs to be copied as well?

    When moving files to an extern SSD is also necessary to move the recycle? Does this affects other files if it's not copied? We need to move files from an old Syno to a new one and we need to load them on an SSD. The files in the #recycle folder are not needed anymore so I suppose we don't need...
