    Hyper Backup rsync - 218+ to 115j - I'm confused now on the results

    Recently had a NAS failure and have recovered data to a new NAS (DS218+) while the data is also on a USB drive I had thought I'd add a DS115j and copy the data. The Data on NAS1 is a shared folder (data) containing a number of folders (music, users (with sub directories) backup app install files...

    New NAS system after hardware failure - replace 2bay with 2 single bay?

    Better late than never.. Thank you What I ended up doing is using my RPi and was able to see the "old" drives and copy the files to a "new" 1T usb drive - I then plugged the USB drive into the DS218+ and copied the files over to the NAS. I have further questions about Synology NAS and will post...

    New NAS system after hardware failure - replace 2bay with 2 single bay?

    RMerlin, Thank you.. Do you have an opinion regarding recovering data from the existing drives - since I'm on a MacBook (10.13.6) and there is no native support for ext3/4 I can .. a) buy a copy of Paragon b) create a Linux boot USB and boot Linux c) load a VM and run Linux in the VM Regards

    New NAS system after hardware failure - replace 2bay with 2 single bay?

    Thank you both for the replies.. yes I do have a UPS (APC550) and NAS has always been connected though I did replace the battery late last year (don't know if they failures are related in anyway) I'll pick up a new 2 Bay and go from there. If I plug the "old" drives into a "new" box will the...

    New NAS system after hardware failure - replace 2bay with 2 single bay?

    Hi, So short story is my long running QNAP 219II+ has quit - looks as if the drive controller has given up as well as the power plug on the 12v input looks like it has over heated. While the system boots the drives are not sensed but if I connect the drives to my Macbook (using Paragon ext3) I...

    DIY router - anyone using a MinnowBoard Turbot or other SBC suggestions

    I see that this topic comes up periodically... Just wondering if recommendations have changed.. As a learning project I'm thinking of a DIY Router - I'm not afraid of tinkering. I currently run an older Asus router with Merlin loaded (no VPN) and since replacing this unit is in the not to...

    Support for TS-219P II - going forward what does it mean?

    As QNAP discontinues support for older systems the 219P II being one of them. It continues to work with no issues. What does it mean in general terms? security? I mainly use it for LAN backups but I do tunnel in via FTP periodically when travelling using SFTP. I would assume updates on my router...

    Backup from QNAP TS-219P II to Synology DS115j - Solved (maybe)

    Thought I'd update.. I poked around SNB forums and others looking for hints suggestions. I ultimately looked at NIC settings and connection speeds. Both the QNAP and Synology showed 1G connection.. - then I realized that while the Synology was plugged in another room - I realized that that room...

    Backup from QNAP TS-219P II to Synology DS115j - Solved (maybe)

    Posting here - if I should be in QNAP forum please let me know ... I have a TS-219P II (4.3.3.0361 firmware) and recently purchased a Synology DS115j (DSM 6.1.5) to use as a separate backup. They are connected via CAT5 thru a 1G switch. Samba and AFP are running on both. My LAN has a MS win7...

    wired router, build or buy? and what do I miss out on?

    Time I have (somewhat), money is spent wisely :) I'm not cringing at the $100 amount as much as wondering at that price level with the hEX what am I losing. What specifications would I need to compare to make an educated perchase?

    wired router, build or buy? and what do I miss out on?

    As I mess around configuring my home network I am also thinking of future proofing as well. With this in mind I am thinking that a 'newer' router may be needed as ISP speeds go up (currently I'm on 100/10, but 250 & 1G is available) my Asus 16 is I believe only capable to 100 (I think) Since I...

    adding Smart TV.. WiFi to Guest Network configuration

    Thanks Yes I had considered a powerline adapter but hadn't looked at the tech side of that yet (speed etc) I was hoping I could achieve what I wanted without spending some $$. I do use a MoCA system all ready into another place in the home (enabling wifi coverage, as I can't get an Cat5 cable...

    adding Smart TV.. WiFi to Guest Network configuration

    Correct the TV doesn't get an IP at all. As well if I connect my laptop to the guest wifi it will not get a IP either. Yes the Archer C7 is connected with ethernet from a LAN port on the Asus to a LAN port on the Archer C7. I thank you for your help.. I think that I may have assumed that by...
