New here but old

Postby Dell » Sun Jul 05, 2020 12:08 am

Hi all
Just purchased a Asustor NAS and two iron wolf 2T drives as the reviews are good, had a WD my cloud home ( sorry for swearing) what a load of crap I had nothing but trouble with it now it’s dead and lost everything so I hope this one is better, I haven’t received it yet .

Hello,

there's no age to start.

Do you plan to use the 2 discs as raid 1 or as a single?

In any case, I advise you to buy an external backup unit (an USB hard drive) to make cold backups.

Being an old man I haven’t got a clue what raid is can you explain please, and yes this time I will have a backup.

Hi,

Start by reading Asustor college courses ...
ex. Introduction to Raid :
https://www.asustor.com/en/online/Colle ... ?topic=251

lot of others courses can also help you.

then if you have more questions ... don't hesitate.

Philippe.
NB. old is always relative :lol:
NB2. Raid is NOT a backup ... just a big help in some cases (disk failure)

Hi father.mande
You said if I had any other questions I think I understand what Raid is mor or less but I was going to have an external drive plugged into USB port as backup is that possible if so how.
And thanks for pointing me towards the collage as I did not know that existed very informative.
