Adding more storage to my NAS

Eighter Western Digital easy store hard drives.

When I purchased my Synology NAS I filled it with eight 4TB drives, and did dual redundancy leaving me with 22TB of space that I never thought I would fill…

Well, a couple of weeks back I started getting alerts about low disk space, I only had 3.5TB free. Yes I know many of you are thinking that 3.5TB of free space is plenty, sadly I did not. I got a great deal on some WD external 12TB drives that I had to schuck each and every one of them, but now I have 72TB of space which I can’t imagine I will fill up anytime soon…

Update: I have finally completed the expanding of the storage volume and rather than the 72TB that was calculated from the Synology Raid calculator it actually came out to 65.20TB of usable space, really with the 12TB drives were 12TB rather than 10.91TB.
