WD 8/10TB Easystore ("White Label" - likely a rebranded HGST or relabeled WD Red/Gold 5400RPM 256MB Cache helium filled drive)

Autoshutdown is a feature from the NAS. UPS that allow integration merely feedback the status and level of the battery charge

I am using the following https://www.apc.com/shop/sg/en/products/APC-BACK-UPS-CS-650VA-230V-ASEAN/P-BK650-AS

The sealed battery will need to change across roughly 2+years of continuous use. I buy 3rd party replacement from sim lim.
I connect most of my network devices including the NAS, so that notification can continue to send out from the NAS after power trip.

You probably wouldn’t need to last across a power trip, but typically for the NAS alone it will last u for an hour at least, for my case, only less than an hour. Most important is graceful shutdown.


I bought the above model. It’s emitting a buzzing / high-pitched sound intermittently. It gets quite annoying.

Can you feedback if yours also makes such noise?

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/...ow_can_I_run_a_memory_test_on_my_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.
