So I have migrated to a new DS1512+ from my 210j .... and after adding 3rd and 4th disks... I would like to switch to SHR from RAID1 of the current migrated volume to maximise the space whilst keeping the simplicity of a single volume. Also I have had some "experimental" software on the past I would like to make sure is completely removed.
This is of course not possible with keeping data etc, so I have now almost backed up all data to another box and am ready to start again.
But then I tried to find some possibility of a factory reset ... So its like new including empty disks etc. I found this http://www.synology.com/support/faq_sho ... u&q_id=348 but it's vague to say the least
So to confirm... yes I want to lose allllllll data and reset the firmware etc. Install it like a new box with all the standard shares generated (photo, video etc)
From that FAQ it says I press RESET twice .... and then just reinstall DSM using the assistant.... will this also format data etc or should I destroy those volumes before I do the reset?
