Safe to upgrade with failed disk?

Unread post by adam1v » Wed Sep 17, 2008 2:24 pm

One of my disks has failed and ive been recommended to run the SMART tools on the cubestation.
Having never used telnet/ssh I was wondering how feasable it would be to upgrade to the latest firmware 702 whilst one of the disks (disk 2 out of 4) is 'not initialized'.

I understand that the new firmware has SMART capablities now, and I was wondering how much easier this would be for me to use?

I would advise you to first consult Synology Support before making any changes
