    DSM 7.0 Degraded Storage pool/volume options

    Hi, I setup my DS920+ yesterday and after a bit of faffing around, got it recognised on my network. Everything was fine, but when I got up there was a storage pool/volume degraded alert and 1 of the HDD was no longer recognised. As I’d setup 1 pool incorporating all 3 HDD I appear to be stuck...

    Storage Manager Change in DSM7?

    In DSM6, I was able to see a nice graphical representation of the cache usage for my SSD cache - I'm pretty sure it was in Storage Manager. But in DSM7, I can no longer find it; is it gone, or did it move someplace obscure?

    Recover Data from removed storage pool

    DSM 6.2 Expanding storage space and changing RAID type

    Hello. I'm trying to do two things - replace half of my old, small drives with new, larger drives, and change my RAID type from RAID 6 to SHR. My NAS is an 1817+ running DSM 6.2.4. It has eight bays, all full of 4TB drives, in one storage pool, in a RAID 6 array. I have four new 8TB drives...

    m.2 for storage

    Can I use the M.2 slot in my 920+ for storage or are they only for caching? I have 1 m.2 for read cache but I'm thinking of a 2tb for more storage.

    C2 Storage Will CS2 Storage support protocols like WebDAV/SFTP?

    Unless rclone/restic supports CS2 natively it would be great to at least use WebDAV/SFTP - I could not find any information about this? Anyone know?

    How to remove excess drives from storage pool and increase capacity?

    I have a 4-bay DS918+ which was originally configured with 2 drives in SHR (1 drive redundancy). I needed more space, so I added 2 more drives. My goal was to have more storage space, and still to have duplicate drives. I mistakenly chose to "convert single volume storage pool to multiple...

    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.

    More storage in my NAS

    I have two 4TB drives in my DS216J NAS. I am not using RAID. These drives are pooled as Volume1, so I have about 7.25 TB available. Naturally, all of this data is backed up. I want to add more space. 1) Can I just replace one of the drives with an 8TB (and restore the data), or will this mess up...

    Data scrubbing in Storage Manager

    Have been alerted [scared] by @jeyare about RAID 5 (SHR-1) potential for failure during rebuild due to unrecoverable read error (URE) when accessing disk sectors. The likelihood of this occurring increases the larger the RAID size. So given that in RAID 5 you have to reconstruct the missing data...
