I'm quite ignorant of the technical details. My understanding is that with 4 drives, it is built to survive the lost of one drive.

So with my 4x 4TB WD Red Pro drives (registering 3.6TB), the NAS is allowing me 10.8TB of storage space (instead of 14.4TB).

Sounds like RAID 5 - striped data with redundancy over all drives.

jwcdds wrote in post #18113582 (external link)
I'm new to NAS so I'm still fingering it out. I've been told by another friend (who's much more tech savvy) that this is a good system.

His words:

"Oh, the synology is a monster! It's practically a full fledged server! Have fun with it!"

"VPN, SQL, Web, Python, Backup, NVR, Mail, it does more than you get with WIndows Server!"

All that is techno jibberish to me. I just want a robust storage.

Sounds like you got it and more!

I think I'll still enroll in cloud backup via CrashPlan. We'll see.

I've been doing that for years now.

Dual RAID-5 systems in the house (my current PC and my old PC, now the wife's, with all important files duplicated over.)

My full machine backed up to CrashPlan.

Do note that I had 4+ TB of data when I started with them and it took several months to do my initial upload! :)

I also do periodic local backups to external drives.

I can only hope this will significantly reduce the chance of another catastrophic failure. :D

But can't escape from human error :cry:
I can proof this :cry:

MedicineMan recently calibrated several lenses on his 1DX2 via Reikan. I'm sure he'll chime in here soon after he wakes up or gets done making more great photographs of hawks, but in the meantime, here's a good thread in which he shows a great pic of him and his girl (affectionately known as the Poof) calibrating some lenses, specifically on page 2:

Yes, I've calibrated two 1Dx MkII so far. Everything went smoothly.

I also used that utility to check for dust on my sensor. WHOA! the body I used in Africa looked terrible in the test. I put on a 100-400 at f/40 and shot the clear sky as double check. Yep, the Reikan data looked pretty accurate. It currently has around 15,000 actuations. Next day I drove over to Canon support in Jamesburg, NJ and had the sensor cleaned (I'm CPS Gold).

Reikan software is amazing and I highly recommend it.

Very, very nice Julian!! That is a top-shelf product you have there. It will serve you well. I've been running a RAID 5 setup now for almost two years and I love it! I went with a localized RAID 5 (versus a shared NAS) simply in the interest of speed. But wow, your setup is super nice and you have the distinct advantage of sharing/accessing that RAID from any device you want, anywhere you want. Congrats!

Now this is the gold standard of proper backups! Of course, I would expect nothing less from Erik. ;-)a

Since we're sharing storage solutions amongst friends, here are a couple of snapshots of my set-up. I don't consider it to be too off-topic since this one of the devices in which my Canon 1D X Mark II photos are stored upon. ;-)a

I also back up this RAID 5 setup to a separate system on-site via Apple's Time Machine and then I also back up to an off-site system that is brought back to the house once a month to facilitate the off-site backup. I feel like this is a pretty solid method of protecting my work.

Cheers,
Bryan

Of course! I have FoCal, but have yet to calibrate my lenses. Hopefully I can get to it in two weeks though!

I need to quit goofing off on here! I have a wedding tomorrow morning to get ready for (as a second shooter) and then early next week I depart for 5 days of landscapes in Acadia National Park. (Note to self: get off POTN and start prepping!)

Cheers,
Bryan

My God day 11 of rain. We did have one nice day but honestly it is easier to shoot birds in the rain.
Doing Reiken FoCal on the 70-300 today. Did Chef have any questions on FoCal. We're no experts but willing to help.

I wish I could say the same about it.. I just cant get it to work on my MK ii.

I keep on getting this error message, Tried the usual tricks but still the same..
