Beginners Question File Station

Recommended Posts

I've just installed Xpenology on a HP N54L (Bare Metal) DSM 5-4493 Update 5, 3 x WD red 4 Tb, I'm trying to transfer files from my previous NAS (Netgear ReadyNAS NV+) approv 5 Tb on to Xpenology using the File station upload, tasks start ok but appear to stop when the DSM webpage is shut down on the PC, is there something I'm missing?

If you are using filestation and copying the files from the netgear mapped to a local drive on the pc, then yes, closing the dsm will stop the copying. You would be better served to use rsync if the Netgear will do it, or mount the volume from the netgear as a mount on the xpenology.

 

Rsync is probably going to be the better solution, but it will take some googling until you get it right. 5Tb is going to take a while to transfer.
