This guy is such a drama queen. I have seen this from his click bait Walmart ripped me off video when all they did was incorrectly ship the wrong machine. I run a Synology with 24tb using WD red drives, have done for probably 5 years now. Great box and when I had a power issue they didn't even bat an eye lid, sent me a new Synology. Great company, great product (If your not a drama queen looking for clicks)

3:55 - NO. This is not a problem with a NAS. The potentially catastrophic loss of data is *entirely* because you had a deficient backup strategy. If you can't tolerate a piece of hardware dying, you need a backup. It's really as simple as that. All hardware fails eventually.

Dude, the signalling is fine on the powersupply I'm going to bet its main 12 volt rail failed. Take a good proprietary small form factor PSU, depin the special power connector, repin it onto the mulex power and ground rails then plug into the mother board. Simple fix. Just find a PSU small enough to fit in the case and done. Might take a days worth of work and a bit of searching at your local PC scrapper.

Admittedly, I haven't watched the full video yet BUT you're missing a very very key point. If this device contains the only copy of the files on it then you've already failed your storage needs. 3 copies on at least 2 different types of media with 1 being stored offsite.

Another one bites the dust..... that's why it is so important to have backup, as nothing is for ever....even if you built your own server, hard disks still can fail in many ways some of which will also not be saved by raid. In any way : you always need backup. Only one swing this and starting backup before his storage solution fails and this video had a good purpose....

Surely this is the entire intent of an appliance based NAS? Not withstanding the ease at which your data could be recovered (it's just mdadm+lvm) if you just looked into it a bit more but the entire purpose of a NAS appliance has to be ease of use. So you use it for several years, 24/7 and the PSU cooks it's caps. Simples. You buy another unit, rip your drives out, replace them in the new unit. Up and running an hour after your replacement unit arrives. Alternatively you build a custom server. You run that several years 24/7 and it cooks it's caps. You can't have intern dave just swap the drives over and fix it as you're busy so it waits until you're free that evening, now you're switching parts out, but when a PSU dies it'll often take out other components so now you're running on borrowed time for the rest of your shit instead of having new gear hosting your NAS. Honestly, the disposable nature of it is the entire point to the appliance NAS unit.

Synology blows....... The os is garbage as regards failures.... say for example you use the synology expander separate case... and you have a cable failure or the power suppy is not turned on....... Oh you are fucked....... becasue the RAID was split across the multiple units & synology DOES NOT check to see all the drives are on line BEFORE mounting them. so you get a partial RAID mount which is then non-recoverable. the same with those SHITTY slide in parts, sometimes you slide it out for cleaning, but it mis registers in the slot....... power on &... oh you are so fucked...... since the RAID is turned on without any warning a drive is missing. the piece of shit should NOT mount the RAID if there is a drive missing or unit missing, but allow you to access the web front end to correct the error. Then you get a 3 year guarantee.. after 3 years you CANNOT get spares, they absolutely refuse to sell you them, i had 2 units fail with motherboard problems and they refused to sell me a new MB for the expansion, i had to go out and buy a new one.

There are Xeon 8 core Atom servers, but they are usually soldered onto a motherboard. The Super Micro ones that I have seen come with 8,10,12,14, SATA plugs. They have tried and true PCH chips (nee Southbridge) that just work. Not the fastest rig though. Linux Debian with Zotta File System is best. No bit rot and one can mount multiple types of ZRAID. Use only Reg ECC RAM and lots of it. Build 2 of them. Use old server chassis with lots of hot plug bays. Again, old but tried and true. The newest is not always the greatest.

Not everyone wants to build a new server for a NAS and not everyone has shelves of spare components of they did build one. Most people that researched using a Synology know: 1) if it fails, you can get to your data with linux. 2) yes, you can purchase another and swap the drives in - even a newer model and upgrade. 5 years for you is a heck of a run for a lot of hardware! 3) a NAS with RAID does not = backup. If it was critical data and you can't be "down" at all, I hope you'll be building TWO servers to keep in sync and maybe keeping one of those off-site. But, even two in the same building is better than another single point of failure. You seem annoyed that a 5 year old device that served you pretty well failed and you didn't have a plan or a more convenient source of backup. That's not on the device, that's on you.

Several years back I had a Seagate Blackarmor NAS which stopped recognizing the RAID array even though the drives were fine. Pulled the drives, connected them to my desktop, and ran a RAID recovery program to get the data back. Much easier than trying to fix or replace the NAS itself.

Thats why you should only use Nas4Free! You can extract the data to another array even from a LiveCD, on any computer. I have seen those desperate calls for help, for example, "Can anybody lend me Lacie NAS ? HELP ASAP!" BTW, this model costs like 800$! WTF? I can assemble a NAS4Free box WITH couple of hard drives for that amount of money! But in this case, the problem is probably 3V rail in the power supply. Give it to a human-soldering-iron, he will repair it for 20$.

You still have the drives though, even if you couldn't get the system to boot you would probably be able to access the drives in linux. Those synology boxes are all linux under the hood, so im sure it must be possible to access it the data because your drives are totally fine. Learn from this and have 3 copies of your data, one of which is offsite.

Welp... I see an osmelloscope (yes, I'm a fan of uncle Bumblefuck. Get over it!) in the background, if you get a phase locked dual channel signal generator (FeelTech do 'em for cheap on ebay, but it must be externally grounded, else it'll float at about 100V!!! Your scope should give you a good enough path to ground anyway.) you can build a crude looking curve tracer in about 5 minutes. See Paul's videos on using that (Mr Carlson's Lab) to diagnose and repair all sorts of electronic woes. In one of his more recent videos (yes, they're long, it helps develop your attention span) he used his curve tracer to identify a few dead (or dying) ICs in-circuit in about 10 minutes. It'll bring back some of that scope's former glory, rather than being purely relegated to prop duty and you might even learn something.

Among other things this guy is wrong is the PSU. It is standard industrial PSU and it costs something like $120. Same price either used on ebay with fast delivery or ordering new from the Chinese mfg which takes 3-4 weeks. And again you could just buy new and maybe bigger Synology NAS and just slap those drives into the and rebuild the raid array in that one.

Vor 16 Tage

Yes! 1) Show us what a IT professional you are and keep banging the NAS into the table, I am sure that helps a lot. Specially if power died suddenly and the hard drive heads are not parked ! Thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump. In 3 minutes he banged the NAS to the table 7 times. 2) On the issue, of you custom build PC NAS, I have build those, there is absolutely no guarantee that you'll be able to save the the data when your PC dies. And might be even less of a chance to recover the data than with purpose specific NAS like Synology. All Synology NAS systems run the exact same firmware and software. At least ***theoretically**** you should be able to slam the disks from dead Synology NAS to any other Synology NAS with same or bigger number of slots and restore the existing disk filesystem. ON PC there are infinitely more variables to rebuild the exactly same environent: Motherboard, version nad revision, bios version, RAID controller, RAID software... I can tell from experience it is just as hard or even harder to rebuild 10 years old custom PC and it's RAID array that "some guy" (even if that guy is you) build as it would be to repair that standardized NAS unit for all firmware, hardware and SW and settings there the hundreds if not thousands detailed resources and tutorials on the internet. After decade of maintaing and repairing that homegrown RAID arrays (with $900 mobo and $1500 3WARE raid card) I switched to "proprietary" standardized NAS boxes and I have never looked back. You just need to pick good and widely used, standardized manufacturer and model. Synologyis one of the best value for the money and it is actually on the higher price and quality range. 3) "the lock is stupid anyway" comment: FFS, you r-tard! The lock is NOT to prevent someone stealing the drives it is to prevent accidentally pressing the drive release and popping out one or more units. If they are unlocked and on the unit is on self or rack then all you need to do is hit or brush you elbow to front of the NAS and out pops 2-3 drives from the unlocked slots. A good practice is to leave empty slots unlocked and occupied slots locked so when opening empty one you can not by accidentally pop out a drive. 4) First ranting about the proprietary custom power supply which you can not buy anywhere and then opening the unit and realizing it using standard PC PSU. I can tell you this: No one makes their own custom PSUs and no one makes their own custom fans. in 99,99% of the machined in the world there are off the self standardized parts. On the other hand 2 things that never are standardized or compatible with anything are: motherboards and graphics cards. In Synology the RAID software is opensorce standard linux raid SW and you can relatively easily rebuild ANY Synology RAID array on most linux computers. In fact all Synology NAS are very standardized and easily recoverable. To my research one of the , if not the most, easy to recover.

NB: That Silverstone CS381 uses an SFX-L form factor PSU. Personally, I'd stick with a roomier case for SOHO use. You saw in the Synology how space constraints limit your options. Something like a Norco RPC-450TH (no affiliation) is a good value that leaves you a ton of options when things break. (Motherboards from EEB to ITX, standard ATX or mini redundant PSU, standard consumer fan mounts, simple SATA backplane without miniSAS or anything like that, tall enough to fit almost any CPU cooler, standard expansion card support if you decide to add things in the future, and so on.)

That's exactly why i do a diy server for bulk storage. If you are an enterprise with service for a nas or san that's different, but for the average home user the pain of having to build a server (or have someone do it for them) is more than offset by what happens of your storage device dies. This does nothing for bad luck with HD's though, that's a whole different matter.

Oh that PSU "tester". It only reports no load voltages, which in case of dying PSU is really no good indicator of anything. I have used that particular tester a lot, and it is likely to give you a false negative (it says that the PSU is ok when it's not) and nowadays I just test the same setup with a different PSU. Seriously, throw that thing away.

Also. I know it's very common to use custom PSUs in all kinda NAS boxes and embedded whatnots, but why can't manufacturers just stick with the standards we already have? That looks like a mini-ITX, but not quite... Exactly the reason I built my NAS from standard parts in a standard (but carefully selected) mini-ITX case that accepts full size ATX power supply with plenty of juice!

A 4 year old NAS, Synology discontinued the model this 3rd quarter. The replacement is a 1517+. Look, if you guys were serious about your storage, then your next investment would be the HP SAN. They are time-proven, outstanding uptimes, solid warranty support, and amazing speed, capacity, and redundancy. This beast has two power supplies and TWO controller boards. If one even thinks about quitting, predictive software alerts you to the impending problem, then kicks the ailing component out of production and sounds an alarm. The SAN then goes to a reduced performance mode until the replacement part is installed, then automatically puts it into production and returns back to normal capacity with no downtime, only a reduced access speed, maybe. Delegate your surrogate SAN to backups, and 2nd priority at that. Make it a priority to source off-site backups like a cloud server, or colo a NAS at a data site somewhere with sufficient bandwidth to handle your backups timely.

When you have that much critical data on non-HA storage device and not following the 3-2-1 storage rule, you will ALWAYS have this problem...regardless of building your own server or not... (wait until you don't understand ZFS and have a failure, mdadm messes up one of your arrays, or a hardware raid controller corrupts your drives...) This is NOT a problem with Synology, QNAP, or any other manufacturer's product. This IS a process/procedural issue with the lack of a reasonable business continuity plan, which are well documented (again, the 3,2,1 rule, and one of the dozens of High Availability solutions on the market) and understood in the world of SOHO and Enterprise storage solutions. Please don't blame the hardware for ignorance or not using best practices!
