  1. I couldn't agree with you more and I definitely learned my lesson.
  2. I almost had a disaster as I updated to the latest version and was locked out. jensmander on the forum gave me some suggestions and I am up and running. I am not real technical like many on this site so what I need is the simplest way to backup my complete server. I will buy an external usb drive to do it and just want an easy way for the less technical person to accomplish this. Thanks in advance.
  3. Luckily method 2 worked and I am back in business. Will probably settle for the version of software from now on.
  4. Due to my impatience and stupidity I hosed my nas. It has been running on 918+ 6.2-23739. Being bored with nothing to do today I decided to upgrade to the latest 24922. Well unfortunately now I can't access my nas. It has 4 drives in it running shr. I know I have to probably start from scratch but how can I do this without losing all my data. That would be a disaster as I didn't do a regular backup, only relied on SHR which I realize was stupid. Is there any hope?

  7. I have two 128 gig ssds set up just for caching besides my four data discs.
  8. Okay thanks I think I'll stick with the 4 gigs. I've got a huge movie library and it seems to be streaming perfectly and the main other use for it is just backing up my other PCS and I'm getting real good transfer speed so no sense wasting money on more memory. Thanks for your opinion.
  9. I have a nas emulating DS918 on a J1900 motherboard. I use it for backups and plexmedia. Right now It's running 4 gigs of ram. Is there any advantage to install more than the 4 gigs I am using now. Seems to be running fine.
  10. I don't have the option of using another nic as I am using a mini-itx and the only pcie slot is being used for a 4 port sata card.
  11. I have another question. I found I wasn't using the correct shutdown for 918. I installed version 6.2.02. Same as before. It almost shuts down though the fans still run but I can not longer access server. Do you think if I hard shut it down after that it is likely to corrupt files? Did it a couple of times and it still boots fine. Maybe back to to openmedaivault software but really like xpenology.
  12. No luck with shut down. Once I initiate shutdown it does something as I can no longer access nas but fan still running and it's showing up in my router so I guess I am stuck. I am running ds918. I don't know if a different version would have different results.
  13. I did try the power button package but it still didn't shutdown.

    Errors

    Thanks so much. So obvious I didn't think of it. Appreciate your information.

    Errors

    I am getting the below message on my 4 bay xpenology server. My question is how can I determine which drive is starting to fail since it just says disk 7? The hard disk 7 on DS918_PLUS had an I/O error, but it is working properly now after several retries. It might have been caused by bad sectors. If this error occurs again, please back up your data and run the S.M.A.R.T. test on your hard drive to examine the hard drive status.
