I have 3 16TB HDDs in my DS920+ newly setup with a SHR-1 pool and a single volume plus a few basic packages installed. It shows the storage pool as 29.1 TB and the volume size as 27.9 TB (a 1.2 TB difference in size). On the volume it shows about 800 MB as used although I haven't put any of my own data yet.
- What exactly is stored in the 1.2 TB outside the volume? Will this grow as I fill my volume with data, install apps? What about if I added another 16 TB HDD - will the difference in pool and volume sizes increase?
- Similarly, what is in the 800 MB? Is it where the OS (DSM) and the packages are installed? If so I assume that OS/package updates can cause this to increase right?
- Is there a way I can browse ALL the files on the volume (including the os/package files) and not just the shared folders I've created on my NAS which is what File Station seems to show me?
- I came accross the term 'LUN' it seems related somehow but I couldn't find a good explanation online. Can somebody please explain in a simple way?
