My Synology NAS started beeping at me recently.
I logged on and the control panel told me that one of the two (mirrored) hard disks had failed.
No problem. Everything was mirrored on the other hard disk.
But just to be safe I backed up the 1.75TB of data to an external USB drive and then shut the NAS down to save wear and tear.
Then I ordered a new Synology NAS chassis, but this time I’m going for a four-bay unit, a DS418.
To complete the new NAS build, I’ve ordered four 2TB drives.
As soon as the NAS and drives have arrived I’ll put them together and get the NAS up and running.
Then I’ll build the profiles that I use, then copy the backed-up data from the EDD and that should be it.
