I am a complete beginner in NAS.
1 HDD 2.5 inch for general data management / cloud storage
1 HDD 2.5 inch as backup / daily 8 p.m.
Now to my question.
Which settings would you recommend for the two hard drives and which spin-down time? Basically, I want to keep operations going 24/7. However, I only use the NAS for myself and only have to access it temporarily. In principle, classic document management and irregularly playing a video via KODI.
The backup hard disk is actually only needed once a day. And a backup is made via Rsync every day at 8 p.m.
Nevertheless, I want to keep energy consumption as low as possible.
So far I have the following settings:
HDD1 (Cloud) = 127 Intermediate power + spin down time 30 minutes
HDD2 (backup) = 127 Intermediate power + spindown time 20 minutes
Do you still have a recommendation for me regarding the energy settings or are my settings already set well? As I said, I don't need top performance. The system is generally designed to be quite energy-saving.
Thank you in advance for your feedback
