I'm planning to add 2-3 cameras to my DS420+ which has no disks yet. Ideally HD quality 24/7 recording with 14 day retention. Can someone advise on the size of each disk, I also have 3TB of other data to backup to the NAS. Looking to go SHR or RAID5, thanks
The Problem: - I did what I could only do and installed my 4 x 10TB existing Sata drives into the new TVS 682, it appears I cannot use static volume with the new Qtier SSD drives function (Qsync over our network to 5 Computers?) – presently able to carry out our normal nightly back up of each computer drive (Documents and its Qsync folder)
I suppose I am looking for a heads up before I have to click the rebuild button? Is this right or is there another option? Looked till I am now confused – (I’ll say it first - yes I am easily confused)
BTW - Purchased TL D800S via SPAN – TVS 682 via Box
Bought one 16GB CT16G4SFD8266 but unfortunately did not work for the DS720+ (blue light is flushing and is not booting up). Do you know what ram module is compatible with the 720+ and what is preferable size 8GB or 16GB. Thanks.
I'm looking at the qnap ts-451+ and the Asustor AS6404T. I'll be using the NAS to hold movies to stream throughout my home via LAN. I have no need to use the HDMI port, I already have media players (Nvidia Shield and Mibox Android TV boxes) so the Nas will just be a storage and access point. Files are also backed up in the cloud.
Which of the 2 Nas devices would you recommend based on your expert knowledge?
Thanks In Advance
Would you consider the qnap ts451+ too old to purchase. Mostly will be used to hold movies to stream over my home network. Not using the HDMI direct connect port.
Raid 5 will be my option with 4 10Tb drives
First thx for a intressing website and Youtube channel. I have today since a couple of years a WD pr2100 wich has served me well. I use it mostly for Plex and some minor backups. I also have some friends who uses my Plex server. I think of upgrading to get more bays and a more powerful NAS. I have consider synology 918+ or 920+ or maybe a terramaster. But recently I also have been looking at the qnap 672N-i3. Regarding on more Plex users is the qnap a better choice? Mainly the material is 1080 p. Is it more futureproof regarding some 4K with the qnqp ? Is there another better NAS option ? I have ofcourse Plexpass with transcoding today on my wd pr2100. I dont mind spending some money on a new NAS.
I've followed several of your video tutorials and set up my DS220+. Can you help please? I have created a shared folder on the NAS and mapped it to Z : on my PC and I want to use this folder to be my main working folder for photo editing with photoshop and luminar. I also want to be able to show those photos on my TV on the same network but the TV will only see the 3 Media Server created folders "photo", "video" and "music". I don't want to have to copy the photos from the shared folder to the media folder. Am I missing something? Thanks for a great series.
Hi NAS compares - the site has been really useful - thank you
So I am about to need to sort out my storage and I think I need to move up to a NAS - below are some current details
I am a small outfit creative professional (artist / graphic designer) - so have large project files that need access to (but not across large groups)
Currently I have a macbook pro with a nearly full 1tb SSD in the machine.
I use a 3TB Toshiba external hard drive for time machine and + store photos
and a 4TB Seagate external hard drive for time machine and + store photos
So I guess I've been using these USB external drives like a primitive RAID 1.
I am looking to free up my SSD on my macbook and then use a NAS as my working machine. I suspect that I will need increase the amount of space I am using at present (so 4 or 6 TB ? this I am unsure and happy to take advice..) and maybe use something like RAID 5 system ? Again happy to take advice.
Thanks , Sam
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???
