I currently have a D-Link DNS-320 2-bay NAS and want to upgrade to the Synology DS212J 2-bay. My Dlink has 2x2TB drives running in RAID-1 and about 60% full; im trying to figure out the best way to safely transfer all the data...
The only way that I can think of is to pull one of the 2TB drives, format it in the Synology NAS and manually transfer everything over ethernet (Dlink -> Synology)... then pull the other drive and and let RAID rebuild... problem with this is that I am vulnerable to data loss during the transfer... any tips?
sounds like i need to grab a 3rd 2tb drive somewhere... sucks that i bought them for $50 a pop last year and now they are all over $100
Yeah drive costs are incredibly high compared to a year ago. The drives I use on some of our servers are in the $349+ range for 2TB (WD RE4/Seagate Constellation/etc.). I use to be able to get these for < $249.
