    I have tried to add 2 different 8TB drives to my DS218+ (one at an time) and each time the Synology refuses to add the drives, claiming they are ‘failing’. I’ve putlled the drives, reformatted them on a cmomputer, scanned them, and they are both fine (brand new drives from different...

    Storage Manager rejects new healthy disks as "Critical" because of "reset commands"?

    I am trying to install a new HDD in my DS1515+. The hard drives are brand new Seagate Exos X. I have bought 3 of these drives, and 1 of them works fine and is now part of my storage pool, but the other 2 gives me an error when I install them in the DS. The error is "Multiple reset command...

I deactivated that third suspect drive, Installed the new 4 TB in its place and allowed it to REPAIR and DATA Scrub. I then added the 4th 4 TB and...

    Storage Manager Change in DSM7?

    Data scrubbing in Storage Manager

    Empty drive shows 0.5TB is used

    Hello, I am still experimenting with my new NAS DS220j. And now after I removed everything from all my drives, and empty all recycle bins, and deleted all Shared Folders, the Storage Manager still tells there is 524,5 GB in use. Before removing everything there was over 1 TB in use. And I...

    Hot Spare disks (Storage Manager)

    Being new to >2 bay NAS I hadn't seen the Hot Spare options before. Now I'm thinking about current usage but also migrating the RAID in the future. A few questions occur to me: The documentation lists the RAID types that are supported for Hot Spare. I use SHR-1 and this is omitted from the...
