Have been reviewing to buy a new NAS, I have a DS101 and aDS 101J, yes early adaptor from synology! consider a DS412+, but cannot understand why a DS412+ does not support the DX510, whilst a DS1512 and a DS712 do support this, can this be enabled or will it come with next update ?

Does anyone know if the DS412+ would see all 5 drive bays on the DX510 or only 1 HDD? Thanks.
All other DiskStation/RackStation models equipped with eSATA interface can still connect with Synology expansion units for backup or additional storage. Please caution the following:
This approach can only form independent volume on the expansion unit. It is not for expanding DiskStation/RackStation's internal volumes.
eSATA ports on these models may not have screw holes for proper fastening.
Synology expansion units cannot auto power up with DiskStation/RackStation not listed above.
