Hi.I’m new to Synology and also NAS. Can I get some advice?
I have a 8 bay Nas and just wondering if I its better to have two volumes so I can back up from one volume to the next. what do you think? best way to set up 8 bay nas for Home files, Photography, Videography, Media to share, Work. will 4 x12Tb and 4 x 18TB, would you pool the lot and just have shared folders or would you split it into different volumes?
I put in the 18TBs first and 2 NVMEs and created Vol 1 and then realised I should have put the 12s in first if `I wanted ONE huge Pool/Volume.
I have copied the data over to the 12s which are now in a Second Pool/ Volume but my NVMes are related to Vol 1. Can I de activate Vol one so I can re add it in and add to Pool 2 ( as 12 small and 18 Larger) but what will happed to the NVME cache that is related to Vol 1 and has 36 GB on it ?
Is my system software on the first Vol which I want to take out and reinstall ? or on the NVME and how do I make sure I save this system software off these NVMEs.
I need to deactivate these and the Vol.1 ( making Vol 2 into vol 1) so I can reinstall these 18Tbs adding to the new Vo1 12 TB pool.
( so it becomes 4x12TB and 4x18TB) rather than the other way round. )
Do I deactivate the drive and the NMVE associated with Vol 1 to do this .
Is there system software on the cache NVMEs? How do I transfer this over?
Thanks in advance
