It’s been 6 years that I have owned my DS1513+ and it’s just beginning to act out now.
I have 2 “improper shutdowns” in the last 5 days. I have checked the logs and nothing comes up that is significant. I reached out to Synology for support.
I am beginning to prep for the worst (always safer that way) and also now that I finished installing my rack cabinet, I am interested in migrating to a rack mount Synology, I just didn’t think it would be this soon.
Since it’s been 6 years, it’s been a long time since I reviewed a NAS.
My current setup is a 5-bay DS1513+ with 5 x 3TB Red Drives with a 2 Drive Fault Tolerance, I believe I only have about 1 TB of space remaining (or a little less - still working on a project on my mac, so it’s has not been archived there yet)
All audio, video, music, movies, books, documents, projects, for the whole family and team projects are stored on there.
Any recommendations on what to look for or what questions to ask myself?
