HP Gen8 DSM5.2 Disc crash - best option?




I've been running DSM 5.2 happily on my HP Gen8 for a few years 

It contains 2 WD Red drives as JBOB (no raid)

Well yesterday Volume 1 crashed - I've managed to recover my data (pix etc) 


So that disc needs to come out but I'm wondering if I swap out the other one (3tb) and replace with 2 x 4tb ones running as RAID 1 for integrity


I figured it would be a excuse to finally upgrade to dsm6.2 while I'm at it (pretty much start again as a new install)

BUT here is my main stress - all the multimedia apps that are installed are installed on the crashed volume and don't run so I can't get their settings (its been a REALLY long time since I did this and setting all those again will make me cry even more than I am already 😢)

Is there any way to get a backup of these settings and configuration?


What settings are found in the backup section of control panel anyway?
