just treat it as a brand new installation or there is a way to "upgrade"?

 

my PC: Core Celeron G530, asus P8H77-I, onboard realtek 81xx NIC, had been running at DSM 4.2 3202, I have 6 disks loaded now, all with a lot of data

 

if I need to install as a brand new, will it impact my data? any risk of data losing?

thanks

It's similar to new installation, but you should see status in SA as migratable and no options to create SHR during the installation. Data will (should) stay, settings and installed apps will need to be reinstalled.

There is ALWAYS risk of data losing. Backup is always advised, but too often ignored (sometimes with late regrets).

thanks XPEH, I do worried about the data lossing, and I did have a large amount of data that need to be backed up, which makes it almost imposssible.

I can try to backup the most important portion, and after that I'll give it a shot.

 

BTW, can Mac recognize the Synology disk format (I assume it's EXT4?), how can I read it directly from Mac?
