Hi to all,
my first post on this Forum :)
I would like to migrate one HDD (8 TB) from a DS118 model to DS116 model.
Is there a specific procedure to do this harmlessly?
Someone among you has done this kind of migration already?

Thanks to all for reply.
Greetings from Italy.

Not sure why you Would want to upgrade to an older NAS model....
‘cause the new model DS118 (which I bought and returned back) do not support DACs audio playing on USB port. DS116 does perfectly. Besides, DS116 is a very good NAS... same amount of memory (1 GB) as DS118, fast enough to do download tasks and audio reproduction at the same time. Personally, I like it.
FYI Synology ended support for USB audio DACs with the x16 series. Following series (x18 and x20) do not play audio well, even though DACs are recognized by DSM.

p.s.: thanks for the link.

Greetings.
