    DS220+ upgrade to 18GB.

    After my initial upgrade to 6GB with a 4GB Crucial memory that lasted for more than 7 months with no problems, I've gone mad and upgraded the 220+ to 18GB 😁 It's been about a week now and no problems so far. I've never received any warnings even during the first boot after installation, it was...

    Why not to upgrade to DSM7

    Apart from being cautious about new releases, why wouldn't I want to upgrade? What apps might it break, for example?

    RAM upgrade seen but not used? DS218+

    Hi everyone! I upgraded my DS218+ with an 8GB Crucial stick (after having checked compatibility on NAScompares at the time). DSM correctly sees the 10 GB, but after using 2GB (big task) does not use the other 8GB free physical memory (still displays them as free) and instead starts swapping to...

    DSM 6.2.4-2556 Now Stable Enough To Upgrade From 6.2.3?

    Synology RAM upgrade. Useful or not?

    Hi everyone :) I am currently using a Synology DS1819+ as a file server and to host a wiki (~20 users). The device comes equipped with 4GB of DDR4 and so far RAM usage has remained below 20% (usually around 15%). I guess this means that 1GB of RAM would be enough for what my DS does, right? I...

    Info RS1221+ ECC RAM Upgrade

    I wasn't really planning on this upgrade but stumbled on a new 'Synology' branded ECC SODIMM for regular DDR4 money. I need more RAM than this but for now it does, at least, double my RAM and brings me into dual-channel mode. My search for a bigger and better memory configuration that escapes...

    Another RAM upgrade post - my RS1219+ is getting low

    So my RS1219+ came with 2GB ram, and I am always using over 50% of it and quite often maxing it out. Looking at other ram posts, Crucial was a commonly recommended company, but according to their website they apparently don't have anything that is compatible with the RS1219+? Memory RAM & SSD...
