i was using two 4tb nas disks in my ds920+ which is on dsm 6.24 and then i removed them and put new disks instead of them. i bought a 3.5 inch hdd enclosure. i want to put a 4tb nas disk into that enclosure and then connect the enclosure to my nas by usb and i want to do hyperbackup backup to the nas disk in the enclosure and then later on restore from that nas disk after i create a new volume
i am considering connecting the enclosure to my nas and then formatting to ext4 under external devices in the nas. how long will it take to format? a few minutes or an hour or more?
i read that hyperbackup also works with an external hard disk which uses ntfs. has anyone used ntfs and then later on restored from it? if yes then what happened?
