Synology DiskStation NAS DS720+ (6GB) reviews
Can I start with a single drive, and add a second one later?
25/12/2020 | 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+ (6GB)?Link to a DS720+ (6GB) review page I will be using this NAS mainly for access remotely to my pictures and watch plex in my TV (1080p). How much RAM should I get??
11/06/2020 | Guest
2GB should be fine for most of the processes - you can always upgrade later very easily.
