- Is there a list of file systems that can be used in Command Line "mount -t"? I'm loading different drives during the process of copying from my old Linksys NAS200 NAS to Synology DS220+. The file system types in Synology's GNU Linux don't seem consistent with other uses in Ubuntu or the NAS200 Linux. What I'm seeing with one drive may be getting more confused because of the difference between the partitioning scheme and the file systems of the partitions, but nevertheless it's hard to tell - and thus to mount the drive in the Synology box. My Ubuntu system, using 'disks', says that partitioning is Master Boot Record. Synology 'parted' says it's msdos, but 'mount' generates an umbrella error - "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock, missing codepage or helper program, or other error" - not helpful.
- The Ubuntu box shows the partition I'm interested in as xfs. I don't see any reference to xfs in Synology NAS docs.
- The secondary drive from the LinksysNAS uses MBR, and ext2 for partitions. I was able to mount and copy from this to an existing internal drive in the Synology NAS.
- It might be a red herring (other than the process), or relevant for other drives with different packages. I installed the ExFAT package from the Package Manager, I don't think it actually started (although I did restart) but perhaps its only relevant to DSM, not the CLI - or external USB drives, not internal. In any case, how does a Package get started?
- Are there any community packages with additional file systems?
- Is it possible to install an alternative to Synology mount from the Command line which has more file systems? And then remove it after I'm done migrating?
Right now, I'm finessing the issue (I hope) by using my Ubuntu box to copy from the Linksys NAS200 drive to a drive that I want to put in the DS220. It's got GUID partition table and Ext4 file system on the partition. Fingers crossed.
