I have a DS220+ with two 6TB HDD. I got a notification from Synology Active Insights that one of the drives was failing. Both drives are Seagate IronWolf 6TB 7200 RPM 256MB Cache ST6000VN0033.
Synology no longer shows these drives as being supported (although they were a few years ago) but the new version of this drive is; however the new drive only spins at 5400. I don’t think I should mismatch drive speeds so I think I’ll just replace it with the original.
I have the NAS set up with the Synology recommended RAID, which is BSFT or somesuch thing, so can I simply pull the old dying drive and replace with the new one?
