Please select how did you purchase your DiskStation

DiskStation - Diskless
By default, the Synology DiskStation is sold without hard drives included. These models allow for customization of the disk storage capacity to be set by the administrator of the DiskStation. To proceed with the guide on installing a Diskless Diskstation, click here
DiskStation - Pre-installed
Available only in North America, Pre-installed DiskStations are distributed by Synology's North American Branch Office, typically models numbers of DS410j 4100, or DS210j 2100 for example. These models already have the hard drives installed, DiskStation Manager loaded and a RAID volume built, allowing for quick deployment of a DiskStation with the most common capacity.
