The Standard volume (also known as Synology Hybrid RAID) can optimize the volume size when combining hard drives with different sizes. and check hard drive's status.Chapter Chapter 4: Manage Storage Space 4 Volume Capacity Before sharing Synology DiskStation services with your users. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of two disks for later data recovery. JBOD is a collection of hard drives. This configuration includes a backup option. If the volume is composed of two or more hard drives. If you buy a Synology DiskStation with 2 or more bays. and one will act as a hot spare drive to rebuild the failed drive of the volume automatically. This chapter explains how to use Volume Manager to set up storage space. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of one disk for later data recovery. including volumes and iSCSI Targets. What is Volume? A volume is the combination of several hard drives into one storage space for centralized management. 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. so data integrity is protected when at least one disk is normal. See "Appendix A: Synology DiskStation Specifications" on Page 147 for more information. access external disks with Synology DiskStation Manager. The system will write identical data to each hard drive at the same time. This volume type eliminates the risk of volume failure and provides extra data protection. you can choose between several volume types. you can select only one hard drive at a 1 x (HDD size) time. a process of dividing data into blocks and spreading the data blocks across several hard drives. 2 "N" represents the total number of hard drives within the volume. but without safety measures. RAID 10 combines two hard drives into a group. When creating a Basic volume. A RAID 5+Spare volume requires at least four drives. ≧4 --------1 Volume types except for Basic are supported on specific models only. RAID 0 offers Striping.

Some types of volume can provide data protection to prevent data loss caused by disk failure. you need to set up storage spaces first. data integrity is protected when one of the hard drives fails. in which data integrity is (even number) protected when one of the two hard drives fails. Combining multiple disks to build a volume.
