• Verify health of hard disks using Synology NAS

    I have my NAS (Synology DS413) and three hard disks. I need to check if everything is okay with the disks before I set up RAID / migrate all of my data. But here's the problem: I don't have any PCs, only notebooks. Is there a way to do this with NAS firmware? Also, what tests should I run too?

  • Should we put local SQL Server files on NAS or SAN?

    We're preparing to install a new server on SQL Server 2008. Here's our question: What would you recommend - one server with RAID 10 or all the files on a NAS? Or should we just use iSCSI? The new server has about 4 GB of RAM and the database file has 2 GB. What's the best option for us?

    We have a Synology DS213 that has two 600 GB drives on RAID 1. I think it was two nights ago, it reported that the second drive became degraded and we should replace it. But when we ran the SMART test, it said the drive was fine. Is there to actually confirm that the drive went bad?
