DS409+ Biggest HDD (6-8Tb?)

Unread post by kim.t » Tue Mar 13, 2018 7:08 am

I have a DS409+ - currently with 3 1,5Tb WD green and 1 4Tb deskstar.
Is it possible to use a 6 or 8Tb in my DS409+ ? In the "drive compatibility chart" only HDD up to 4Tb HDD are listed

Most likely it will work. The thing is fitting them into the drive caddy.

What do you mean ? The physical size of ex. WD RED 3TB,4TB,5TB,6TB,8TB, 10TB is the same :

Height (in./mm) 1.028/26.1
Length (in./mm) 5.787/147
Width (in./mm, ± .01 in.) 4/101.6

Even though the specs are the same, it's a tight fit with the older drive trays, hence the reason Synology says it doesn't support it. Anyhow, here's my DS1010+ with a WD 8TB White Label.
