    Synology Drive Client data taking most of my laptop SSD

    I have a DS220J with 6TB drives (i.e. a mirrored pair) - it's set up with straightforward default installation/set-up options (I'm new to all this). I use Linux Mint on a couple of PCs and I've installed Synology Drive Client 3.0.1 on both. One is a desktop with a 2TB drive and all is well...

    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...

    Multiple Storage Pools and SSD Cache

    Hi, I’ve got a DS1520+ (5 bay) with 5 x 4TB HDDs, and 2 Samsung 970 Evos as cache. I’ve just attached the DX517 expansion unit and installed 5 x 10TB HDDs in there. Unfortunately I made the mistake of simply expanding my original storage pool and consequently, the new 10TB drives are now only...

    SSD Volume and HDD Volume on same NAS

    Are their any issues running a pure SSD volume and a pure HDD volume on the same NAS, or will the presence of an HDD volume drag the SSD volume down to spinning rust speed? Eg: Storage Pool 1 / Volume 1 = SSD-only array Storage Pool 2 / Volume 2 = HDD-only array

    Hi everyone, As a Christmas present to myself :p, I've ordered a DS620slim with 3 x 4TB WD Red SA500 SSDs in order to retire my DS216+II as a backup NAS. I'm really looking forward to the almost-silence and the performance gain, but am a bit unsure on how to configure the volume. Let me...

    SSD Cache for DS920+

    Is it better to use 1 larger m.2, let's say 500GB, than 2 smaller ones? I have 2 256 GB Sabrents which I can use or I can buy a single 512.

    How well does an SSD Cache work?

    I’m thinking of buying a couple of NVMe disks to use for cache in my DS1019+, and wondered what other people’s experiences are with them? I remember reading in the past that cache disks on DSM6 don’t (or didn’t) work particularly well, but should be improved in DSM7. But it was quite a while...
