Have you lost data and want to warn others of how it happening? Or are you worried that your setup is not as robust as you hope and want to learn how others recovered their data? Here is where you go to read about data loss past and present.

Drawback for SSD?

I was planning to use a Synology NAS populated with four 2TB ssd for use in my motorhome. I think the SSD will not be affected by the bumps and vibrations of a moving vehicle. Now I am questioning the wisdom of doing this because of the 'volatility' of data stored on an SSD. Do SSD need to be "ON" at all times in order to prevent slow loss of data? I have seen some online information that SSD will begin to lose data if they are stored and not being used. Is this true? how long can they be 'off' before they begin losing data? Any help you can offer will be appreciated.

Sonnet Fusion D400QR5 "Corrupted and unreadable" Help pls?

Hi, my drive has suddenly stopped working properly- help please? My PC behaved oddly when I found a conflict between an Adobe Premiere update and Windows10 OS, so it may be that the Sonnet drive wasn't properly powered down as I would normally do while I was trying to fix the problem. It was working fine and I could access files as normal beforehand. Now when I click on the drive it lists all of the files and Folders I expect... one or two (especially in the root) will open, but most display: "X:\{folder name} is not accessible The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable" all 4 green LEDs are lit, but not the 'ready' LED at the bottom of the casing. I've checked the health and error reports on the Sonnet menu- all drives are good. The Windows scan and repair doesn't fix anything, and Piriform utility won't run on the drive for some reason (although it does work on my other drives attached to the PC. Help please? Sonnet have not been much use.

NAS Reliability during lifespan?

Researching NAS solutions from major NAS vendors and found several mentions of unit failures. This made me very nervous about the quality control of the major NAS vendors. I want to ask the collective wisdom of the community what their experiences have been. I am I just seeing the malcontents, or is quality a concern, if it is a concern is one major vendor more rigorous about testing units???
