Hi folks I hope you can help as I am a newbie, I have created a user and folder etc. For my daughter who does not live at this address and my question is how does she access those folders on my TNAS f2-210 from outside my network. I have read the manuals but don’t understand, thanks Stewart
I'm looking for a 2-bay budget NAS for home use. The NAS will store mostly videos and photos and mostly accessed by me only. I've been using Google Drive and the amount of videos and photos that I use is nearing 2 TB. I see it growing for this year hence looking at 6-8TB of data and that will do good for at least 2026.
I also need the capability to play videos from it. I'm doing 1080p videos for now but I'm not discounting the need to play 4k videos at 30 fps. I won't do 60 fps as it's not my video editing style.
I'm looking into Synology since it was said that their software is top notch. I know my way around PCs. I can build and fix PCs but as much as possible, I don't want it to be a chore in terms of storing data (coming from an easy cloud based storage).
I am working on improving my NAS Security after the Qlocker debacle. I followed the video you made on this topic (great material thanks!) and picked up most of the points. One thing I am struggling with is that in order to set up the push service I am being asked to connect to myQnapCloud, a service which I do not want to enable for the time being. Am I correct in my understanding that I can only enable push notifications if I enable myQnapCloud service on my NAS or is there some way around it? Or maybe I am just not understanding the instructions I found on Qnaps own tutorial page.
Thanks for any and all the help!
Can I Move hard drives to different slots on my 4 bay 453b Qnap? I have 3 shucked 8TB WD drives in bays 1, 2 and 3. Since drive 1 is next to CPU, it runs 2-3 degrees hotter than drive 3. I want to leave bay 1 open. I don’t want to lose data. If I shut down my Nas, can I move drive 1 from slot 1 to slot 4? My theory is that all three drives will function at the same temperature and maybe the CPU’s will also cool down as a result of leaving slot one empty. Right now my CPU temp is 46°C and my drives are 48°, 47° and 45° (bays 1,2 and 3, respectively).
Current disks: 2x WD Red 4TB WD40EFRX
Bought in January 2018 for £117 each.
1) things have not got cheaper since then, have they?
2) it's hard to find 5400 rpm drives now
3) it's hard to find full spec sheets. I don't want to increase noise and power consumption by much but I can't find numbers for either my old drives or prospective new ones. Nor can I find out the number of platters to judge heat output.
My NAS box is really a fanless Linux desktop PC (in a weird silent case). Hence only 2 bays, and I run them in RAID 1.
Considering 2 options:
a) 12TB or more, and hope noise and heat aren't too much worse.
b) 8TB in the hope of finding a cool and quiet drive.
Thoughts most welcome! Thanks!
