DSM on an old netbook

Recommended Posts

Hello!
I have an old netbook (Acer Aspire 522, AMD C60 processor, 2 GB of RAM).
For a year he worked at arch Linux. There was a desire to transfer it to Xpenology.
Will this work adequately?

Installed Xpenology 5.2 and updated from update to update 9. The newer version failed to install.
There is still a problem: the netbook has only 1 SATA port. Will RAID 1 work normally if I make an external USB HDD internal (volume)?
Thank you :)

even if possible, its really not advisable

also performance might be a problem with just usb 2.0 (on the other hand with just a 100Mbit nic ...)

i'd recommend to use the usb drive for daily scheduled backup

даже если это возможно, это действительно не рекомендуется

Кроме того, производительность может быть проблемой только с USB 2.0 (с другой стороны, только с 100 Мбит ником ...)

я бы рекомендовал использовать USB-накопитель для ежедневного резервного копирования по расписанию

 

It has been working for 2 weeks now. So far no problems have arisen.
And how to set up daily copying to a USB drive? Will it be better than RAID 0 with USB HDD?

did you use any howto/tutorial to integrate a usb drive  to a raid set?

dsm has software packages for backup and they usually can be set up to be scheduled, not sure what was offered on dsm 5.2 from synology, maybe hyperbackup?

Вы использовали какое-нибудь руководство / учебник для интеграции USB-накопителя в набор рейдов?

I meant that xpenology is working stably.
USB HDD has not even tried to make it internal yet. Does that make sense? Will it slow down the system due to the lack of USB 3.0? Maybe just backing up data to an external drive (without making it internal) will be enough.

У dsm есть пакеты программного обеспечения для резервного копирования, и их обычно можно настроить по расписанию, не зная, что было предложено на dsm 5.2 из synology, может быть, hyperbackup?

As it turned out, there is a standard package "Backup and Restore", but there is also Time Backup in the application store.

maybe but with just 100Mbit (10MByte/s)  that might not be your problem

imho best use case, you cant have good speed (raid0 makes no sense with usb 2.0 and 100 Mbit), raid 1 will not help you in case of filesystem trouble or deleted data

staying inside the usual in this case by doing backup to external disk makes most sense

 

the display of of notebook is 99.99% of the time without use, dsm is a headless design and the original units usually dont even have a option to connect a monitor

maybe a small old computer would be a better choice with 2 or 4 sata ports, 1Gbit network (onboard) and a pcie slot as option to have usb 3.0 (when not already present)
