Re: Adding HDD to Synology DS216+II

There is no problem. YOu configured your 2 disks as a mirrored volume (SHR or RAID1).

Re: Possible auto-backup on Synology?

You can map cifs shares into File Station. According to this "how.to", the Vault 2 appears as cifs share on a PC.

The spec sheets are not up-to-date. Reference is the compatibility list.

Re: Convert SHR to RAID0?

Yes you can add the 2nd disk as a independent 2nd volume. Just dont "expand" the existing volume, but "create" a new one.

Protection from what? Make external backups. RAID has nothing to do with backup.

Re: Synology to Synology Shared folder sync

There is nothing I have to explain. I only pointed out that HyperBackup allows you to chose between a 1:1 file copy and and a propriate DB format as backup. I dont care about the system files they need to make things working.
