I can hear the hard drives working even when no device is connected to it. It never seems to stop. Is there a way of discovering what on earth it is doing?
I have seen the Braveheart post above and the Synology response, but methinks there must be a way for the NAS to report what the heck it is doing at any specific time?
 
What apps/services are you running on it?
Screenshot as below.

I have no idea why I am running OAth Service nor Hyperbackup (since I use USB copy - but nothing attached currently). Nor SAN Manager.

I have read that media server can do this but if nothing is accessing any media it should be quiet should it not?

So I removed Plex with not much difference.
I have sort-of answered my own question by discovering the Task Manager inside the Resource Monitor package. This showed that Active Insight was - seemingly constantly - writing at about 5 MB/sec to the storage volume, no idea why. Anyway, I have uninstalled Active Insight and the disk activity has thankfully stopped.
Not entirely sure what services or abilities I have lost by doing this, but it is worth it to stop the disks thrashing constantly!

On a slightly related note (related to uninstalling unwanted Packages) I don't seem to be able to uninstall SAN Manager, which I don't use. Any ideas?

Thanks for your help - we got there!

If you are not using AI in terms that you have your NAS configured with C2 AI platform for metric purposes then you have not lost anything.

That was at one point part of Storage Manager modules. Over time Syno has start to pull out specific functionalities from DSM or other packages and made smaller more focused ones that can be updated on its own without the need to disrupt the entire system or dependent packages.

Same has happen with File Station for example.

SAN manager is mainly an iSCSI dedicated package and while you do not use it, it is one of those default packages that can’t be removed (easily). Still, if it’s not configured, just ignore it. For your case it is not the source of trouble.
