Will I benefit from DSM update 6.1 to 6.2





Main Question: should I upgrade from DSM 6.1 to 6.2. 

I have read patch notes and don't see a lot that I think affects me but a lot never really gets mentioned - SMB/NFS performance changes etc. So I thought I'd ask before investing the time and risk :).


I gather I'll have to build a new USB with loader, but am unsure if I can then just update the DSM and retain settings/data or if the entire system has to be reconstructed? Is a full backup of data advised or essential?



it's been a while since I've been on the forum - about a year.... with many months in hospital and I feel a lot dumber for the drugs I've been on :/.   So go easy with the answers for my undoubtedly dumb questions to follow 😝


The MVP's here gave me huge assistance with my first build and it's been running nicely with Jun's Loader ver 1.02b (DSD3617xs) and .

I'm on Bare Metal and all working well.


I had to do some messing around to get root access and a few things..... but otherwise it was reasonably straight forward.



media storage, backup of devices at home performed daily.

General files for access across all devices in home

Local backup of this NAS to DS1812+ using Hyperbackup (key data but not all) performed weekly



Jun 1.02b loader and DSM 6.1.4-23824 Update 5

Supermicro X10SDV-4C-TLN2F; 8GB 2133 ECC; LSI 9211 HBA; Corsair XFS 450W

7x 4TB HDD (Raid 6)
