I would like to replace my Synology DS411+ with a Synology DS920+. Do I just insert the current hard drives into the new Synology box, and power it up? Or is there a formal procedure to follow so that I will not lose my stored data?

Answering my own question: I found that Synology has a Migration Assistant that should/will automatically recognize what Synology system/box the drives came from, and which Synology box you are migrating to. Data "should not be" lost in the migration. Voila! Here's a NASCompares video on the topic.
