Synology recently released DSM version 5.2-5565 and with that came some updates for SMB v3 (SMB 3). By default, DSM is set to use SMB 2, and when you change the option to use SMB 3, it seems to “reset” all of your connections.
ANY open connections or mapped drives will not work right away
What that means is that ANY open connections or mapped drives will not work right away; you may have to disconnect and re-connect them all. I actually had to remove my mapped drives and then reconnect them to get them to function properly. I think that may be remedied by a reboot, but I didn’t try that (since I don’t reboot my computer very often).
I recently picked up a NAS system (Synology DS1515+) to migrate a lot of my core files, pictures, business files, music, etc. to. During the transition I had times where I was syncing over files and then had to do some work and updated files locally. I want to make sure to get things moved over and make sure I get EVERYTHING!
I got my Synology DS1515+ setup with 4 x 4TB Western Digital Red drives in a RAID-6 configuration, all connected to the network via Gigabit Ethernet… Here’s some information on the disk configuration and performance I’m getting right out of the box.
I recently picked up a Synology DiskStation DS1515+ for some network attached storage and wanted to install CrashPlan, my choice of online backup software on the NAS for constant backups.
There are some great instructions out there from Scott Hanselman that uses the installers created by PC Load Letter.
