  3. Hi, I'm wanting to upgrade my N54l os 5.2 to os 6? but worried about the data being lost. My current setup has 2 x 3tb drives and 2 x 2tb drives with redundancy and currently I only have 4tb of data on them.. I own another n54l so was thinking of setting this up with v6 and adding 2 x 4tb drives in to start,( 1 drive with redundancy) then I could copy the data from old unit to new. Once it was done then wipe the 2 x 3tb from old unit and was hoping I could add these 2 x 3tb to the new setup with the current 4tb and extend the volume to accommodate the new drive and

  10. Hi, I'm running plex on my hp 54l xpe configuration but cannot get the backup database in the Plex settings to write to my usbshare2 stick.

  11. Hi, I have just added a 5th bay to my N54l and wondered if someone can please advise / link to what the latest bios is I need to use. Thank you.
  12. This option rings a bell. SATA Port 4/5 IDE Mode = ENABLED I'm sure I disabled it then it saw the 5th drive. I have found thou that the bios doesn't seem to save settings since flashing it.
  13. Sorted it. I went into the bios settings and turned off an option. Cant remember till I get home what it was but I'm sure it was to do with either turning on or off ide.
  14. Hi, I updated the bios today and turned the options on in it, then saved the bios. When booting up the bios post screen now shows 5 drives but once booted into the xpenology software it doesn't see it. I have also noticed that the settings I changed in bios seem to reset themselves upon reboot. It is setup as hybrid raid shr so I would have thought it would have picked up the new additional drive. Any ideas?
  15. I'm going to upgrade my backup N54L this weekend and was looking at adding another drive. I see there is a Bios upgrade you need to do to unlocked/speed up the 5th data port but am also reading about people who have bricked their N54l by doing this. is there a specific requirement/age of N54l to do this and what Bios is recommended ? thanks.

  18. Sorted it. SAfair on the mac was causing the problem, used firefox and it installed.
  19. Hi, Im runnning DSM 5.0.4458 on an N54 with Plex and just tried to do the new Version for plex Pass customers. When installing onto the N54 I get Operation failed when doing the manual install. I have tried reboot the as but it still does it, even with an older version. Is there a way to find out whats going on?
  20. Hi, After building my N54l XPe and have loads of data on it I would like to have it automatically backup to another. I have now built another N54l XPe system and have it on the network but whats the best way to have one back up to the other? thanks.
  21. Thank you, that was very helpful. I will look into adding a 5th drive.
  22. Hi, Currently running a N54L with 4 x 2TB drives. Reading about SHR am I correct in thinking I will get more available disk usage and if so can I convert raid 5 to SHR ? Also what the advantage of adding a 5th drive and is it a simply process? thanks Dave.
  23. Thanks, Just checked and it was ticked for indexing but still nothing.
