Best option

Unread post by Ram » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:25 pm

I have now in my DS415+:
SHR1 (3TB+3TB) ext4, SHR1 (2TB)ext4.

I got new 8TB.
What is the best utilization for this?

I am thinking about:
8TB bfrts main disc with rest as a backup

P.S. where is the DSM installed? possible to move DSM system to 8TB drive?
