    Running cost of 2TB SSD SHR vs HD SHR how does the high electricity cost impact running costs?

    Following a recent post on cost of HD vs SSD, I checked the current cost, taking into account the high energy costs that we currently pay. I took SHR 3x2TB for SSD and HDD for people like me that use max 3TB of disk space. I compare WD red Pro 2TB vs MX500 2TB SSD Amazon price by today...

    DSM 7.1 DS720+ 2 Disk SHR Btrfs Mirror

    Hi Guy I have a DS720+ 2 Disk ( 2 * Seagate ST8000DM004, 8TB) SHR BTRFS Mirror, 2.5GB Ethernet. I thought its performance (150MB/s) would be a lot better when reading in this configuration as it should be reading from both disk, looking at the Resource Monitor it is only reading from One Disk...

    SHR and SHR2 format capacity

    Hi, I'm thinking to buy 12BAY NAS (so far my favourite is DS2422+) and my dilemma is 108TB capacity MAX volume size on that NAS device. So I'm thinking i'd make 2 volumes (one for work one for PLEX/media stuff) and there it comes dilemma. My idea is: Volume 1 - SHR2 with 9*16TB (7+2 for...

    What are the benefits of larger arrays?

    Hi, I was wondering about the various enclosures that Synology has and the upper limit of 108 TB per volume. Is there any benefit of using the larger arrays like those 8 bays vs a 4 bay? I can only think about using SHR-2 vs SHR but nothing else beyond that. Thanks!

    DSM 6.2 Is it possible to expand an SHR volume on a DS416slim using the USB3 port?

    Basically my DS416slim uses Shared Folder Sync to mirror a folder on my main NAS. The 416 is running out of space and it already has the biggest possible HDDs in it (2TB x 4). I've not really got much use for this NAS other than as a mirror for this folder, so if I can't expand the space it's...

    So I have 3 nas units total. 2x DS1621+ and a Terramaster f5-221. The terramaster (5 bay, 5x 4tb) and DS1621+ (6 bay, 6x 4tb) have been in use for about a year. I just got a 3rd nas, a DS1621+ and 4x 4tb drives. Now I would like to use the 3rd nas as a backup for the other 2 units. I realize...

    Out with the old, in with the new - 'Tis the Season - SSD

    Out with the old: In with the new: Another 4TB WD Blue to add to the volume - I've been very happy with these drives to date. It's only since the trading the RS1221+ fan noise for the Noctua silence do you get to fully appreciate the peace of SSDs. Usually when I open the door to the...

    Samsung 870 QVO added to my SHR

    I could not resist, 2TB QVO for black friday for just 109€. Decided to just do it and see what happens. Used my second SHR (TLC 2* SSD) disk BTRFS pool/volume to try, and added this 3rd disk without issues. This is not my main SSD pool, it contains slow moving data like music and video as well...

    I currently have 4 3TB drives in SHR. If I want to replace them with 4 6TB drives, do I have to add one at a time then rebuild the pool? Thanks

    How do I change from SHR to JBOD ?!

    Hi everyone, I just bought my first NAS, a DS220j. I installed 2 HD in it and DSM. Now I want to configure storage using Storage Manager. By default my NSA was configured as SHR. However, since security is not a big thing for me (I want to have as much storage space as possible), I would...

    Questions about replacing failing drive on DS212

    I have an old DS 212 (yes, still kicking!) that has two 2TB drives in one pool using SHR. One of the drives is failing. I'm going to replace both of the current 2TB drives w/new 4TB drives so this unit (which is my backup unit) has the same capacity as my main NAS (DS218+/4TBx2). Just...

    Question about transferring from an older NAS to a newer NAS, RAID 1 to SHR

    Hello all, I currently have a ds418j, with 2x8TB, and 2x3TB drives in two RAID 1 configurations. I've never really worried about other types of RAID or SHR as I tend to upgrade my disks as they fail. My plan is to upgrade to a newer NAS, not decided but let's say it's a 4bay like a ds-920...

    NAS 920+ : Set up 4 disks in SHR vs 3 disk in SHR + 1 single disk

    I’ve set up my 920+ as follows: 3 no. 4T disks in SHR (vol 1) for important data + 1 no. single disk (vol 2) for downloaded movies. My logic is that I’m not too bother about losing the downloaded movies in the event this single harddisk fails. I will not need to restore the movie files in vol 2...
