RS814+ with >4TB drives?

Postby ringods » Mon Jun 19, 2017 12:04 pm

Currently running with 4 750GB drives, I want to upgrade the drives with larger ones. The spec sheet for my Synology RS-814+ lists 4TB drives as the maximum capacity. If I look at the Hardware compatibility list, I see larger drives listed there, e.g.:

https://www.synology.com/en-uk/compatib ... mode=false

I have a pre-June 2014 model, so some of them are still excluded for my usage. But can my model truly handle e.g. some of these 6TB disks? Buying 4 of them just to try them out is not really an option. In Belgium, we don't have such a flexible return policy as in the US.

Can someone confirm or deny this working?

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