access external disks with Synology DiskStation Manager. and one will act as a hot spare drive to rebuild the failed drive of the volume automatically. RAID 0 offers Striping. in which data integrity is (even number) protected when one of the two hard drives fails. When creating a Basic volume. This configuration includes a backup option. If you buy a Synology DiskStation with 2 or more bays. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of two disks for later data recovery. and check hard drive's status. you can select only one hard drive at a 1 x (HDD size) time. The system will write identical data to each hard drive at the same time. 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. so data integrity is protected when at least one disk is normal. What is Volume? A volume is the combination of several hard drives into one storage space for centralized management. but without safety measures. Some types of volume can provide data protection to prevent data loss caused by disk failure. This chapter explains how to use Volume Manager to set up storage space. See "Appendix A: Synology DiskStation Specifications" on Page 147 for more information. ≧4 --------1 Volume types except for Basic are supported on specific models only. 31 .Chapter Chapter 4: Manage Storage Space 4 Volume Capacity Before sharing Synology DiskStation services with your users.
