Backing up question

Unread post by maallen40 » Sat Jan 06, 2018 1:21 pm

Hello group....I have been banging my head on the wall trying to decide if I should buy an expansion unit (DX513) to use as a backup to my DS414...then found out it is not compatible. I also have a DS115 (which is compatible) and a DS214.... So I was thinking, If I bought another Nas, say a DS 517 could I back up all three existing Nas's to the new Nas? Or just sell everything and start over with a different setup....any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
