Hi all! Having at last decided in a post-Christmas flush, to get a NAS implemented, I looked at the Drobo DRDS4A31 5N 5 Bay Desktop NAS Enclosure to take my "JBODs".Looking at various reviews on Amazon I had to stop and think a bit - Several comments about unit failures after 2-3 years with unretrievable data.
So I looked at the Synology DS416 4 Bay Desktop Enclosure and their specs leave me confused viz:
DS416 External Drives:
EXT4, EXT3, FAT, NTFS, HFS+*, exFAT*
HFS+ is read only, max 2TB volume size.
exFAT Access is purchased separately in Package Center.
The DS416 Play does not appear to have that restriction.
OK - I'm naive and untrained but am I getting this wrong? Does anyone out there have any reflections on my caution, or recommendations to make? You can ge a feel for how much I am prepared tos spend on this nod I wanted to go for the Dropbox 'cos I'd heard in various podcasts that it is good and takes a mix of drives - I currently have 5 of varying capacities.
