Which NAS?

Hi all, I have been researching which NAS to buy, I know I wasn’t a four bay. My use cases would be for my business but the NAS will be at my home. We have a very mixed use, normal files and documents like spreadsheets etc but also video and audio content that we edit. Two people work from my location and I would want to give access or share files with other team members outside the office. I’m tempted to go with a synology four bay but just not sure. Would need about 40-100tb. I have gigabit internet and ASUS AX8 router. I have looked at ASUSTOR and Synology. Added: budget would be around 500-1000 , but happy to invest in more for quality or reliability Sorry in advance for how boring this question might be for you all.

Synology Moments and viewing mp4 in timeline view in Shared Photo Library?

Edit 31May21 : Synology support recognise this as a bug. Their response is that unless a video has the following XMP tag then Moments will also look to the modification date not the creation date when ordering them after a copy event all videos : XMP.video.Date.UTC (In UTC %Year:%Month:%Date:%Time format) quicktime videos : Xmp.xmp.com.apple.quicktime.creationdate So that leads to 2 questions 1) where can I find this Tag? Synology supprt tells me that some of my videos have it, and some don't, but can't explain to me where to find it 2) if I find the Tag, can I edit it? Can I bulk edit at the same time? Can anyone recreate my bug : In copying .mp4 files from Moments User Photo Library to the Shared Photo Library, the Creation Date is overwritten by the modification date of the copy, and the Shared timeline view orders .mp4s then by the date of copy. This does not appear to be the case for .jpg, .mov, .heic etc. So - if today I copy say a month's worth of files from my User Library into Shared, and look at the Shared Timeline view, everything looks OK apart from all the .mp4, which all are ordered into today, and not by creation date. If anyone can recreate it, are there any fiendish workarounds? I attach screenshots of a .jpg and .mp4 each in my User Library, and then the timeline view and metadata as seen in the Shared Library Annoyingly, it is not consistent - an .mp4 from 2 years ago, when copied to the Shared, remains with the correct Creation Date and is ordered correctly in the Shared Photo Library Even more annoyingly, a jpg from 2 years ago, when copied to the Shared, had its creation date modified and appeared in the Shared as today aaaarggghhh oh fyi the use case : having a shared photo library of family stuff that both me and my partner can selectively add to, rather than having a shared album that only either of us can add to

Migrate from (DSM7) DS218+ to new DS920+?

Could you please advise on how to move from my existing DS218+ (2 x 4TB) to a brand new DS920+? The 218+ is running DSM 7, which I assume the 920+ won't be. Is it possible to upgrade the DS920+ to DSM 7 and then swap the drives from the DS218+ into slots 1&2? I assume that the DS920+ needs at least one blank drive in bay 1 to allow the DSM 7 update. Once I do that, can I eject it and use it elsewhere instead? I have ordered 2 x 2TB drives for the DS218+, as we plan to keep it as a remote backup for the new DS920+.

Building own NAS as fun project - Are there screws you recommend?

I have a PC I am replacing soon. I am not going to be able to get rid of the old PC, so I am thinking about using it as a NAS. I remember hearing about vibrations in a chassis due to having drives that spinup and that vibrations can be really bad for hard drives. Are there any vibration countermeasures like screws?

Saving lightroom photos on Synology without ill effects?

I'm editing (large) photos in Lightroom, and have just added a Synology NAS. I'm not interested in the NAS for processing or sharing photos, only for recovery of data. The NAS has 1gb ethernet, so (from the latest photo video) I wouldn't try to edit from the NAS, but would sync or backup the lightroom pictures and directories. I'm concerned that NAS "helpful" processing such as creation of thumbnails & AI processing could modifiy or add something in the lightroom folders that would cause problems with recovery when restoring the data. Would a variety of sync or of backup be better, and is there a way of being sure the NAS doesn't modify the data?
