    Adding USB drive to 920+

    Hi everyone. I'm enjoying my new 920+ and other than a few bumps, all has gone pretty well. One of the "tasks" I've wanted to do is move my Plex content from an old Windows box to the 920+. On the existing Windows box, it's all on a WD Easystore 10 TB external disk. In Windows, it shows...

    Moving Initial Snapshot via USB

    Our main office has 9.1TB snapshot that I used a 14TB USB drive to move the initial snapshot to our branch office Synology. From main to USB went fine. Took 3 days to get it on there, but all good. Take the USB 3.0 and the 14TB to the branch office. On the Replication section, it shows "Waiting...

    RT6600ax RT6600ax USB port only works at USB 2 speeds

    Has anyone gotten any storage attached to the RT6600ax that works at faster than USB 2 speeds? I thought it was supposed to have a USB 3.1 GEN 2 10gbps port? I can't seem to make it go faster than USB 2 speeds. So first I tried the drives plugged straight into the RT6600ax USB port: The drives...

    DSM 7.0 Single HyperBackup task to multiple rotating USB drives

    I've read through a number of posts on various forums about setting up a rotating backup task with HyperBackup. I've got a USB enclosure where I can swap bare disks. I've set up a single version backup task and the task successfully completes to the first disk I've used. I then swapped that out...

    Is it worth adding a USB My Book to my Synology NAS?

    I see Best Buy has a good deal on a 14TB WD Easystore USB 3.0 for today's deal of the day and it got me thinking. It seems pretty cheap for 14TB of storage. My current Synology DS218 only has 4TB, and is getting a little fuller all the time with photos and videos. Is it worth adding something...

    DSM 7.0 USB Drive recovery solutions hosted on NAS

    Occasionally I get asked if I can recover data from failing portable hard disks, but as a Mac user, I'm finding data recovery tools are somewhat lacking for Apple Silicon and current MacOS. I was wondering if there was something that may run on the NAS akin to ddrescue on Linux, or any disc...

    DS218+ to DS220+ = lost one USB port, need help

    Moving from my DS218+ to DS220+ and noticed (surprise!) that the DS220+ has only one rear USB port. On my DS218+ I had an external USB drive and a UPS connected to the two USB ports on the back of the drive. Since there is only one port on the rear of the DS220+, will it work if I plug in the...

    secure erase through usb

    I was disappointed to discover, at the moment I intended to use the feature, that secure erase is not available for hard drives connected by USB. DSM only offers file system-level access to external media. In principle, one might imagine working around the design limitations in DSM if a VM were...

    I connect a portable USB drive to the front USB port of my DS920+ for backups and file transfers.

    I've just done a lot of transferring of data from my (previous NAS backed up) USB drive to my new NAS, directly using USB Copy package in both instances. I rather stupidly selected 'Mirroring Mode' to realise that if I delete something on one side it will delete it in the other (I know) So my...
