  1. I am confused on what target usage means. I have 3 Xpenology servers. The 3rd one server is just for backup and I have backed up my other two to the 3rd using Hyperbackup. My question is on the attached photo on the two percentages there. Don't seem to have anything to do with how full any of the of the drives are.
  2. One more question on this type of backup. When I do the next backup does it just update the changes from previous backup or is it another complete backup that takes hours.?
  3. As always thanks so much. You are the best and so is this website for all the amazing information.
  4. I have 3 Xpenology nas boxes. I use one just to store backups. My question is if I have a server that fails I am unsure of the procedure to restore. After I replace bad drives do I need to install the basic operating system to the nas box and then restore from the backup. Couldn't find an exact guide just in case it ever happens. Thanks in advance and hope that makes sense. Also is there a better program to backup from one nas to another?
  5. I have a 4 bay nas box emulating DS918. I have removed all the drives. When I put them back in does it matter which bay of the nas each drive goes in? Do they need to go in the same slot they came out of? It's setup shr if that matters. Hope that makes sense.

  7. Never mind. Been working on this too long. Stepped away for a couple of hours and then started from scratch. All working now. If I was blonde you could just call me a dumb blonde.
  8. Well I thought I was fine but now it fails at 56% and get message possibly corrupt file but not the case as I have re-downloaded it a couple of times. Any other suggestions?
  9. Well thanks so much. I looked and looked and didn't see a problem with a typo so I started from scratch and re-did the grub and that fixed my problem so obviously there was a problem in the grub. Your much appreciated.
  10. nobody has any idea what this error is?
  11. I have done a few of these installs but still a newbie. Trying to setup a new nas for my friend. On initial boot after making the usb boot drive I get the following message. Any advice greatly apprecitaed error :terminal 'serial' isn't found.

  13. This has probably been covered on the forum but my search didn't find the answer. Can I convert from shr2 to shr without totally re-doing my server. I don't have a way right now to remove everything from my server to do a re-install synology at this time. Hope that makes sense.
  14. One thing I need to do no matter what is buy a large enough extra hard drive so I can actually backup my server as has been said often raid is replacement for backup and I don't have a backup drive for it.
  15. I have had a server running for almost a year perfectly and it still is. I want to be sure I do this correctly so I don't destroy my server. would this be the correct procedure if I want to try the latest version of Xpenology on my server. Pull all the drives out of my server and put in just one extra drive that I haven't used on the server to test receive the upgrade . If all seems ok do I just put the original drives back in and boot up and then do the update with those drives installed. I have been putting off updating for a long time and in reality I really don't need to do this. More of
