Hi All,
I have several Synology NAS (218+, 220+ and 1520+. I backup these to WD Elements (218 on one WD and 220 & 1520 on another WD. Everything seems to go properly via logs (ie complete backup successful). I am now getting a message I am running out of space on the WDs.
My Question: How can I determine the size of my WDs and how much space is left? I connected the WDs to my Windows laptop but they do not get recognized by the operating system.
Thanks,
Harold
 
If they are formatted to EXT4 then use the NAS itself to access the drives and check for data size and volume size.

Can you see them via Control Panel > External Devices section? If so, check there, or use File Station or SSH method to access the "usbshare#" folder and get the properties that way.
 
yes thanks I too I wanted to know how much space left to see easy, thanks (y)

Rusty, thanks for the suggestion. It will be a few days before I have the opportunity to try it.

I use it for ftp and WebDAV. Enable ftp on DSM and give Cyberduck a try.
