Anyone using moments app? Just wondering if they allow organising photos into folders now. It was not allowed when the app was first released.

There is no folders concept in Moments. Only albums.

HDD Crashed

Dear all,

Like to get some advice on my NAS:

I was having repeated shutdown on my DS-213J lately. Decided to do some troubleshooting and decided to run a memory test following advice from Synology (https://www.synology.com/en-global/k...y_Synology_NAS).

After leaving the NAS to run on Synology Assistant, I received the constant beeping sound and saw that the HDD has crashed.



I have not set up any RAID in the NAS but the HDD is accessible via File Station and I can backup the files on the HDD.

What should I do in this case?

i) Get new HDD to replace the crashed HDD?
ii) Format the HDD and then resume to use it? I am intending to get another 2T HDD and then set up data recovery RAID after this episode?
iii) Do something else?

sidenote: I am aware that the NAS model is quite old and had considered to upgrade it to 218Play or something but am hesitant since the existing 213J is still workable.

Thanks all for the help in advance!

Provide the SMART test so we know the problem lies with hdd / NAS.

Generally, i feel u should just upgrade your Nas

You should get a new 2-bay NAS and new Toshiba HDD going forward. Hope your volume in current NAS got backup.

You are running a 6 years old NAS, you should do some serious thinking what to do next.

I refreshed my ds414 after 3-4 years usage.

Thanks both for the advice..

I am running the extended SMART test now and waiting for it to complete. The quick SMART test indicated that things are normal though and I could still copy files out from the HDD at the moment, so I am surprised that the DSM has reported the HDD crashed..

will share the extended SMART report after it completes.

I am tempted to change the NAS but these days, I am using it primarily to backup photos and stream movies to the tv.. to spend 300 - 500 on a complete system, a little heart pain.. haha

Hi,

I intend to do some updating on my Synology. I am purely an end-user. Any contact for home service for my Synology system?

Thanks in advance

1. No.
2. No.

Any decent router will not have any issues. The problem lies with your TV.

I changed to a Samsung from LG and have no issue ever since

Completed the extended SMART test, strangely enough that the test results indicates that its normal..

This seems to suggest that the HDD is working properly?

Scratching head.. Is it ok for me to just unplug and plug in the HDD again to try?
