    Can hard disk with bad sectors still be used?

    i'm wondering can i start create volume and copying files into the hard disk while the server is checking for parity consistency?

    today, the hard disk with 4 bad sectors has failed and need to be replaced. luckily i haven't really started restoring the files into the server. I have removed the RAID group and redo the process without the failed disk.

    thanks for your response. since RAID 5 is 1-disk fault tolerance, will it be too late if I continue to use it until the server advice me to replace it?
  5. I just did a fresh install of DSM 6.1. While creating a RAID 5 group, there is an alert that it found 4 bad sectors in one of the hard disk. However, the status shows the system is healthy and the hard disk is normal. I am wondering is it still save to continue with the RAID 5 parity consistency check or should I cancel the whole thing and replace the hard disk and rebuild again?

    Gigabyte GA-H97N-WIFI (rev. 1.0)

    You need a compatible network switch. I am using TP-Link TL-SG2216 and you can see how I did it at ... 16-switch/
  7. I have this weird problem. Whenever I start my downloads in Download Station, the internet connection keeps dropping. I can see in my router, the internet has disconnected. I have tried downloading using Transmission (installed via SynoCommunity) and it does not have similar problem. I also tried using uTorrent in my other PC in the same network and it works as well. I am using DSM 5.0-4528 Update 2 and Download Station version 3.5-2638 I am wondering does anyone faced the same problem?

    Hardware Build Suggestions?

    hi haze, you can refer to my guide at
  11. Congrats. I don't have such luck tho. The built in Wifi on my GIGABYTE GA-H97N-WIFI Motherboard is still not working. Keep asking me to insert a USB Wi-Fi adapter.
  12. Hi, Environment: ~ I am using GIGABYTE GA-H97N-WIFI Motherboard and running on DSM 5.0-4528 Update 1. ~ I am staying in a country with timezone GMT+8 ~ I have enabled Sync with NTP server in DSM. Objective: I want my server to auto shutdown and startup at certain time everyday. Problem: Everytime I reboot my server, the clock in my BIOS will always reset to time equivalent to GMT+0. This will screw up the auto startup setting in my DSM. Workaround: Since I found no solution in this forum, I decided to achieve my objective with this workaround. ~ I remove the auto Startup setting in my DSM. It only has auto shutdown setting in my DSM. ~ I let the clock in my BIOS remain in GMT+0. ~ I enable "Resume by Alarm" setting in my BIOS and set the desired startup time 8 hours earlier than my local time. It works flawlessly.

    Fax manager for Synology DSM

    I have an old fax modem PCI card installed in my NAS. Since it is ON almost 24 hours everyday, I am thinking of using it to manage all incoming faxes. I don't need to send faxes. I just need to receive them. I have googled for solution but I couldn't find any. Has anyone tried this? Does it has the necessary driver? Is there any third party software that I can install in the DSM? It will be amazing if the software can forward the faxes in PDF file via email.
