cant restore users and settings backup


Recommended Posts

Synology changed the format of .dss files between DSM 4.x and 5.x, who knows why the restore wasnt made backwardly compatible!!


There is a thread on the Synology forum (see http://forum.synology.com/enu/viewtopic.php?f=232&t=88917) that amongst various moans and stuff, contains some info that may help you 'construct' a DSM 5.x compatible .dss file from your configuration backup.


Of course, we all understand that a backup you cannot restore is not a backup at all - seems to have passed others by.......
