Firmware upgrade - How do to this?
#1
Hello Forum!
I use since 2 years the NAS but I never upgrade the firmware, because I'm afraid that i loose the data on the NAS. At the moment I use more than 90 % of disc-capacity for data.
I use at the moment on my NAS:
PLEX; bubbleupnp and extplorer with RAID 5 (5 HDDs) and a Backup-UPS (300VA)
Now I have this firmware on my NAS: 2.04.05d
So, is possible to upgrade it simple to the current version and is it really simple to upgrade it?
How long does the upgrade take? 5 minutes or longer?

Any experience? Who upgrade the NAS with data on it?

Best regards,
Chris

PS: I also use a Synology NAS (with 2 HDDs) and I update or upgrade them without troubles (every 1-2 month is a new update available). Is it also easy and save with the Thecus NAS?

Dear Sir,

NAS firmware upgrade would change the NAS OS disk, the NAS OS disk stor on the motherboard, thus it is independent from your HDD/RAID/data, if you have concern and not much issue you meet, you could choose stay at current version. But if your HDD running over 2 years, it is like tires on the vehicle and recommend arrange schedule to backup data for new RAID from new HDD.

Hello!
So you recommend an upgrade to the current version - correct?

My NAS is running since 1-2 years but not all the time (I think not more than 1-2000 hours).

Best regards, Chris
