Will Upgrading Your Synology NAS to DSM 7.2 Stop You From Using Third-Party Memory?
As great as it is that Synology recently released the latest version of its premium NAS software, DSM 7.2, there are always going to be detractors hesitant to upgrade their systems with the latest firmware. Despite the obvious benefits new software updates often bring, such as feature updates, compatibility improvements, stability, and security updates, all too often we will hold off updating software in case something that has always worked suddenly doesn’t! You only have to look at the sheer number of people refusing to update from Windows 10 to Windows 11 to see that for some, change is not always good. However, in the case of updating your Synology NAS to a bigger and newer software revision, there is also the question of unofficial and unsupported configurations and how this impacts their use after a big update. Although many users will use custom code or applications from sites such as Synocommunity on their Synology NAS (which are easily broken by larger DSM updates anyway), the big question for many is: Will updating your Synology NAS to DSM 7.2 result in your third-party memory and unsupported memory configuration ceasing to work? In this article, I conduct two different tests on a Synology DS923+ to test the impact of upgrading your NAS from DSM 7.1 to DSM 7.2.
