USB drive

Recommended Posts

When I initially setup my NAS with Xpenology, I used ally favorite 32gb USB drive. Now I have realized the drive kinda needs to be there permanently so should I just copy the image over to a smaller drive that I have? Is it that easy or are there more steps involved? I searched this forum and couldn't find an answer really.

Ok so when I look at the current USB drive that had been attached to the system for booting, it's now a bunch of folders and files. How do I create a disk image out of this?

Don't worry about the format of the old USB, just use something like win32diskimager to create a new one USB.

Right, this is why I wanted to get that usb out and use another smaller one. I have successfully done this, thanks!
