    DSM 7.0 USB problems with DSM7

    On DSM6.2 several of My USBdisks where nicely mounted. DSM7 refuses to mount these. Disks where formatted in NTFS or ext4. However a large USBstick formatted in exfat, and a small USBstick formatted in NTFS mounted perfectly. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    USB hub for DS1621+

    I just recently upgraded from DS1512+ to 1621+ and noticed it only has 3 USB ports vs 6 ports on 1512+. I have 3 USB drives and I also need to connect a UPS. Did anybody had to use a USB hub. Any recommendations? Looks like DS1621+ has USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports. TIA
