RAID 10 combines two hard drives into a group. and one will act as a hot spare drive to rebuild the failed drive of the volume automatically. ≧4 --------1 Volume types except for Basic are supported on specific models only. in which data integrity is (even number) protected when one of the two hard drives fails. The system will write identical data to each hard drive at the same time.Chapter Chapter 4: Manage Storage Space 4 Volume Capacity Before sharing Synology DiskStation services with your users. you can choose between several volume types. If the volume is composed of two or more hard drives. Synology DiskStation Supported Volume Types Volume Type Data Protection HDD # Description Basic No 1 A Basic volume must be created with one hard drive as an independent unit. you need to set up storage spaces first. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of one disk for later data recovery. so data integrity is protected when at least one disk is normal. you can select only one hard drive at a 1 x (HDD size) time. See "Appendix A: Synology DiskStation Specifications" on Page 147 for more information. When creating a Basic volume. including volumes and iSCSI Targets. data integrity is protected when one of the hard drives fails. and check hard drive's status.

JBOD is a collection of hard drives. but without safety measures. RAID 0 offers Striping. 2 "N" represents the total number of hard drives within the volume. This volume type eliminates the risk of volume failure and provides extra data protection. What is Volume? A volume is the combination of several hard drives into one storage space for centralized management. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of two disks for later data recovery. access external disks with Synology DiskStation Manager. A RAID 5+Spare volume requires at least four drives. The Standard volume (also known as Synology Hybrid RAID) can optimize the volume size when combining hard drives with different sizes. This chapter explains how to use Volume Manager to set up storage space.
