Synology DiskStation NAS DS720+ reviews
Can I start with a single drive, and add a second one later?
28/12/2020 | Guest
Yes, you can migrate from a single drive to a protected RAID-1 mirror, or a risky RAID-0. In either case, we recommend that you use exactly the same make and model of drive.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price for DS720+?Link to a DS720+ review page This is a masive improvement compared tol previous DS918+. It comes with NMVe caching slots which so useful for virtual machines and web server. It even boosts Plex.
