    SSD only NAS at the 30000h milestone

    Just to share some SSD experiences: Next week, my first two SSD (Samsung 850 and a Sandisk Ultra) will pass the 30K hours. They are in a SHR with a later added Samsung 860 that has 8000h on the clock. Life estimation is still 96% at the Samsung 850 and no issues so far. These three are still...

    Question about CPUs: is XEON D-1527 really worse than an i3?

    Hi Everyone! I'm trying to decide which NAS to go for based on processor. I need a NAS that can handle Plex and also smoothly run a Windows VM (with radio station software on it), and I've had some great advice and recommendations here and elsewhere. I'm thinking about the Synology DS-1621xs+...

    UPS for my NAS?

    OK, as a follow up to my last thread ("locked out of my NAS due to a power outage"), I decide to look into a UPS for my NAS. Well, what a surprise - anything under $100 will last from 1 to 10 min, depending on load! What are people using UPS for with their NAS - just for momentary power...

    OK, so I've been out of town for a week. Tried to access the NAS remotely with quickconnect but no-go. tried several time over several days but nada. Got home and sure enough, the NAS (DS218play) was off (I'm guessing a power outage but no other electronic items were flashing their clocks)...

    APP Access to remote NAS to update programs

    (Search elsewhere turned up info on what I tried, that did prove it was accessible)…. I have loaned a NAS to relatives in another state. They are not computer savvy to help, and I’m self taught. I did set up email on NAS so it would inform me of issues. It just sent me an email saying 2...

    When a NAS (not the drive) fails...

    I have been using NAS for decades but I have never experienced a NAS failure (PSU died, but not the NAS itself). BUT let's say if a NAS dies, the drives are ok, can I pull the drives out and put them into a different NAS? Will the destination NAS have to be the exact model? Some of my NAS are...

    Pi-hole on Pi or on NAS?

    Is it fine to run Pi-hole on my NAS or should I rather run it on a Raspberry Pi? Won't it stress the hard drives more on the NAS?

    C2 Storage One Hybrid Share folder limit on C2 or NAS?

    I have just signed up for C2 storage with the intention of trying hybrid share in order to sync two Synology NAS systems and use C2 as cloud storage. Seems to be a good solution to my small business requirements. Users will access their own and a few shared folder on their local NAS via Synology...

    Reinstall NAS, from DSM7 to DSM6, can it be done?

    I've been playing with the idea of downgrading to DSM6 from DSM7 (I miss PhotoStation too much!). There are unofficial guides on how to do this and I've done that before on older DSM-versions.. But is it possible to reinstall the entire thing to DSM6? Which means, no downgrade, wipe the entire...

    Just set up my DS920+ and I now see two NAS servers with sequential IPs in the assistant window. Clearly I must have screwed up, but I cannot see how to delete the second NAS. I appreciate any guidance and direction. Thanks.

    Changed IP of NAS — Emails show old address

    Hello. First post. Due to an upcoming 1 year loan of my DS215J system to someone else, I changed the IP Address from 192.x.x.x to 10.x.x.x IP (Because that’s what they use). 6.2.4 is loaded in it. It works, it is in place there and reports as a 10, not 192 IP. I’m still getting the Drive...
