Hi I've been running DSM 5.2 happily on my HP Gen8 for a few years It contains 2 WD Red drives as JBOB (no raid) Well yesterday Volume 1 crashed - I've managed to recover my data (pix etc) So that disc needs to come out but I'm wondering if I swap out the other one (3tb) and replace with 2 x 4tb ones running as RAID 1 for integrity I figured it would be a excuse to finally upgrade to dsm6.2 while I'm at it (pretty much start again as a new install) BUT here is my main stress - all the multimedia apps that are installed are installed on the crashed volume and don't run so I can't get their settings (its been a REALLY long time since I did this and setting all those again will make me cry even more than I am already ) Is there any way to get a backup of these settings and configuration? What settings are found in the backup section of control panel anyway? Thanks
Hello! This is a short guide about how to downgrade from DSM 6.2 to DSM 6.1 after a failed upgrade. I made this mistake myself, so i'm sharing how to fix it! Your going to need a spare HDD or SSD. Make sure there is nothing on it. You've installed DSM before, so you should have your synoboot.img from JunsLoader. Your current bootloader on your USB in now NONFUNCTIONING, you will need to reflash your USB with JunsLoader. Once you have your new, reflashed USB stick, unplug ALL drives from the motherboard. Make sure there are NO SATA interfaces connected. Plug in your new, empty drive to the motherboard and boot from the USB stick. (You will need a keyboard for this step) The first option in the GRUB interface is what you are looking for. Use http://find.synology.com or Synology Web Assistant to find your DSM. Follow the steps and install DSM 6.1 from a PAT file. DO NOT INSTALL 6.2 IF YOU LEFT A DRIVE IN IT WILL SAY RECOVER. GOTO 2. Let Synology do its thing and eventually you will have a working 6.1. While the PC is ON, connect the drives to the motherboard (with you data on it). Under Storage Manager they will pop up and say Unused. You might need to reboot, at this option. It took me some fiddling around, but eventually Synology will prompt you with a Recover Crashed Partition prompt. Click Yes. All of your data will appear, and Synology will automatically perform RAID scrubbing.
Hi, My DS1515+ is dead (intel C2538 bug) since one month, i'm waiting the RMA from my reseller's since Synology doesn't take rma directly... My 5 disks (shr1) are OK and i'm wondering if i can recover my data using xpenology rather than ubuntu's method. I can't remember wich dsm version was installed on the DS1515+ (probably 6.x). Thanks.
