Synology Setup on the Cheap.

I want to set up a NAS with 7 drives of different sizes (~75 TB) to be used immediately and room for more drives later. For reasons of effort and an unexpected time urgency, I’ve decided to go with Synology instead of my earlier plan of building my own server. The NAS doesn’t need to do any strenuous processing, it’s just a place to store files with resiliency against a failed drive, while my home computer will do all the heavy lifting.

Currently the drives are all in externals connected to my computer through USB3, and it’s a wiring/heat management mess that’s vulnerable to my soon to be adopted kittens.

The problem is, there are so, so many synology setups available to wade through, and I want help. Plus, with current ongoing sales, I’m assuming it’ll be cheaper now than soon. Or with people upgrading with current sales and then selling their older setups on eBay. Totally fine with used synologies.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

  1. i have had to figure out something similar. i ended up getting a 2 bay synology and two of those 14tb WD drives. my current externals are still here, but i’ll be collecting the data off of most of them onto the nas. i’ll keep the externals as another backup, but may eventually retire them. one will stay my time machine backup and another my general file backup. but i dont want so many drives with duplicate files, so i want it down to NAS with all files (with important files copied on both drives, no RAID) + time machine + external backup of all files. And then wasabi for my offsite backups. and maybe another as a bootable backup, but that’s not a huge priority.

  2. Why Synology? With your situation of varying sizes, just run UnRAID. Buy a used PC or used components to build a PC. UnRAID will run on pretty much any hardware, and will be less expensive and easier to expand than a Synology unit.

    12 bay Synology units are the biggest you can get (not to mention expensive, even used ones), and even if you get expansion bays you should run each as their own volume because not a good idea to run disks in an array daisy chained with an external cable.

    Synology allows various size drives in their array but there are limitations and it’s not an ideal situation. It’s good if you’re upgrading from 10TB to 16TB drives, as an example, and still be able to use all available capacity of the drives and add them as you can afford them. But if you have a hodge podge of varying size drives, that’s not really what it’s designed for.

  3. Don’t expect to plug those drives directly into a Synology NAS and magically access the existing data on whatever filesystem they’re using. A Synology NAS will want them in its own format.

    Technically this is ext4 or BTRFS on either a standard mdraid RAID array or a proprietary Synology SHR “hybrid” raid which is just mdraid trickery to make multiple arrays into one big one; plus two smaller RAID1 arrays that span every disk in the system on which the OS and swap are mirrored, respectively.

    This is not inherently good or bad but it may not fit with your preconceived expectations of how Synology Diskstation Manager works. As Linux mdraid is at the core of DSM’s RAID implementation, adding a drive to a running array will take days at best, so copying one drive at a time and then adding that drive to the NAS may also not be an attractive idea. Also, RAID5 requires at least three drives of the same size to start, so if you want redundancy and the maximum amount of storage space that’s the first array you’ll have to build.

    EDIT: DSM reads NTFS and HFS+ filesystems on USB-connected external drives just fine, perhaps making data moving a little faster than doing it over the network, and this may be an easy route to get your stuff copied to disks already in the NAS. But if all your disks are full, this is going to be a challenge any way you slice it.
