Moving to a better NAS

Hello all,

Love this forum - thanks Will.

I gave a pretty basic DS220J.

It is functional enough but very slow.

I am going to buy a Synology NAS with a bit more horsepower.

One I have bought, is there a tried and tested (and simple) procedure for moving data from my old NAS to by new NAS??

Many thanks in advance!


migration assistant would be where I start.

I would agree with @notsimar, migration assistant is probably the best! It has worked for me every time I have used it.

It also will let you change from EXT4 to BTRFS which is a huge plus!
