Hi everyone. First post here on Synoforum so hope this is the right spot. I have a DS916+ which had 4x 4TB drives in a Raid 5 config. I purchased 4x 8TB drives to upgrade the system as was at 92% of capacity. So was going to simply just replace one drive at a time and let system rebuild but then figured easier to just remove all 4x drives and then upgrade to DSM 7 and install the new 4x 8TB drives and restore backups to the new config. This all went to plan then I realised my backups were not up to date. This was after I removed the storage pool config from the original 4x 4TB array as wanted to use them down the line as offsite backup drives. I did not wipe or securely erase these 4x 4TB drives so now hoping there is a way to recover some of the data that is on it as my offsite backup was not current. My thoughts are using a data recover software like DiskInternal Raid Recovery which seems to let you attach the 4x 4TB drives as local independent drives and it will recreate the raid from info on the drives and then let you recover data. This might mean a second 4bay synology device as my current one now holds the new config. Or maybe if I put the 4x 4TB drives back in I can some how reinstate the storage pool and simply grab the data I want. I really wish now I had not removed the storage pool from the original config as I could probably just put those 4x 4TB drives back in and then recover data wanted. Lost as to what steps I can take at this point and love any advice anyone out there might have.
