What would you do if you lost all your precious data? Family photos and videos, a best-selling novel you wrote or a blockbuster script. In this video, I am going to teach you how to monitor the health of your hard drives with a Synology NAS so your precious data can be stored safely. It’s TechWiz time.

When using Hard Drives to store data, it is more of a when it is going to fail rather than an if it is going to fail. Knowing how to ensure your hard drives are healthy can mean the difference between potentially losing all your data and keeping it safely stored and secure.

Synology produces world class Network Attached Storage systems or NAS for short. They kindly sent me their 8 Bay Synology NAS model DS1815+ to produce a tutorial series based around some intermediate NAS topics.

This video is about steps you can take with a Synology NAS to ensure your hard drives are healthy, so you don’t have a hard drive failure without warning. This video will cover how to set up email notifications, S.M.A.R.T scheduling and RAID Redundancy.
