  1. I have one move question. My nas is a 4 bay and don't anticipate ever needing more space an than the 4 drives in there but if I setup as raid 10 and at sometime want to have larger drives would I have to backup whole server and then add all 4 larger drives and reset them up in raid 10 array? Hope that makes sense.
  2. Thanks so much. Still learning and that is exactly what I wanted to know. Raid 10 it is. I know it's over kill as I am also going to back my nas to usb.
  3. Since I have setup as SHR2 I guess I could have setup as raid 10 instead to avoid this check. I don't plan on adding more disks or larger disks so is there really any difference between shr2 and raid 10. I have read some about it this morning but still a little confused about the difference with my setup. I am going to also do a backup and thinking hyperbackup looks like an easy way to backup to usb. I want shr2 or raid 10 due to the fact you could lose 2 drives and still be able to recover. This is just for home use and mainly I just like to learn more and I enjoy computers.
  4. I just set up this new server with 4hard drives And it Automatically started doing the parity check and I didn’t see any option to not do that unless I’m not understanding what you’re saying. This is a brand new Xpenology box
  5. I am setting up another Xpenology box with 3 4tb drives. Is it possible to setup the box without doing the parity check? Even with 4 2 tb drives on my other box it took forever. 2nd question is if at some time I have to replace a hard drive will it have to do the whole parity check again. Will be setup as SHR 2 like my other box.
  6. I will give that a try before I decide to mangle my case. I didn't realize heat was ever a problem with ssd's. Thought that was only a spinning hard drive problem.
  7. Yes and Lian Li makes the best cases out there. I never have had problems before but I have all 4 bays filled now. I use to only have 2 and I think it's just generating too much heat. I either need a new case or need to cut a hole in the top for an exhaust fan. Not sure what I will do.
  8. I need to build another Xpenology box. I will be using a mini-itx motherboard and need a board that works with the built in network as the only slot will be taken up by a sata card due to the amount of drives. Any recommendations? Also would like low power usage so one with a onboard cpu. Thanks in advance.
  9. It may actually be running too hot. My server case is my favorite 4 bay server case out there as besides the 4 bays it has a place on each side for the ssds. Problem is it has one fan that blows on the hard drive cage but it's not getting air from outside the case. It's a Chenbro SR30169 server case. Been real tempted to have a hole cut in the top and add an exhaust fan.
  10. This has probably been covered but can't seem to find the answer. I setup a friends server. He's running 3 2 tb hard drives setup as SHR. He bought another 2 tb drive and wants it to be setup as SHR 2 as he is real paranoid about losing data. My question is can we just add a 4th drive and convert to SHR2 or do we need to start from scratch. I will be doing it for him and don't want to screw it up. Thanks in advance
  11. I would but I am fairly new and have no idea what your talking about. Funny thing is it has worked fine for a few months and just started doing it. Just about ready to eliminate the cache as I don't see hardly any difference in the performance.
  12. I have had no luck. Nothing makes sense. I tried one ssd at a time using only one ssd and the server doesn't shut down no matter how hard I push it. I have tried another ssd with each of the ssd's I had been using and whenever I have 2 ssd's no matter which ones including the new one my server shuts down saying ssd overheats. Makes me think there is actually a problem with xpenology software that something might have gotten corrupted. tempted to start from scratch and redo everything. Just looking for opinions. Hope that all made sense.
  13. Don't know which one but that's a great idea. I will add one back in for a few days and see what happens. If all goes well will swap it for the other one. Thanks for the suggestion.
  14. I guess it's possible but it ran some tests on it and no errors and all seems ok. Physically isn't hot at all but you are probably correct. On a good note ssd's of the 128 gb or 256 gb are getting dirt cheap. To be honest I disabled them and really didn't notice any speed difference so may just not use them.
  15. I have a 4 bay server running xpenology DS918 and it's works fine except I had to disable cache. I had 2 120gb Samsung ssds for caching. Under heavy use it automatically shuts down. When I turn back on the error messages is that one of my cache ssd's is overheating. Tested both drives and they seem fine. Do you think it's a real error or a prob with xpenology not sensing drives correctly/
