  • One could write 10 pages and only scratch the surface of the object. There are many references on the net. It is better for one to look there to have an idea of the subject and come back with ...
  • Synology has nothing special about data integrity, it just makes use if the BTRFS built in characteristics. Synology just provides the GUI that makes BTRFS easy to be used from a novice like me.
  • I think RAID in general checks only RAID integrity and not data integrity. Data integrity checking is done by filesystems like ZFS or BTRFS and autohealing is achieved by reading the redundant disk. ...
  • The advantage of RAID for a home user is the protection of silent corruption of files and auto-healing of it. Corrupted data can silently be backuped and original files be lost for ever. To use ...
  • Of course. I wanted to say if one wants the absolute small space and consumption, especially with 2 disks, they have a big advantage. With the number of disks increasing, their advantage diminishes. ...
  • For the home user the biggest advantages of Qnap and Synology are that they can be cheap, very compact and with a very low consumption, as far as you are OK with 2 disks. The other big advantage is ...
  • I passed from QNAP and Synology, each one was with me for a few years. Qnap was the first and Synology the later. I left them for several reasons, the main one was not supporting Linux with desktop ...
  • Replied in BTRFS...
    There were some problems with BTRFS and RAID 5, along time ago,  I don’t know if they are fixed, I suppose so, at least in Synology. I had a mirror setup in my Synology until I sold it and changed ...
  • I think RAID scrubbing checks - fixes RAID consistency, not the actual data. It cannot detect silent data corruption as ZFS and BTRFS natively do.
  • With TrueNAS, one can put a ZFS pool in any PC can hold the disks. For example I have 2 pools of 2 disks each one. I can put these 2 disks even in a SFF pc. After that if one is familiar with Linux ...
  • How do you do checksums? I tried in the past, it was a pain with big shares and frequently changing data, but I am not an IT guy. BTRFS and ZFS can do it for me, silently and reliably, and will ...
  • I had Qnap and Synology in the past, I left them because of no support by them with Linux desktop clients. Now I moved to TrueNAS (previously FreeNAS) installed on a HP Microserver. Many advantages ...
