Any of the enclosures will support SSDs. However you need to be careful when implementing SSDs in them. It may be overkill for what you need, if at the end of the day all you’re doing is keeping two folders in sync you really don’t need the speed of an SSD on the NAS. If you do put SSDs in there just make sure you enable TRIM on the NAS volume otherwise you’ll find the SSD slow down for file writes quite considerably over time.
Also I have been using my SSD drives for at least 5 years now without issue Is it worth buying a newer enclosure that supports SSD or stick with the normal spinning disk type? I have about £400 £500 all in for it and don't mind spending a bit more for something a bit hardware heavy just in case I ever need it. I found the Synology DS718+ But not sure just yet
I really dislike the idea of having a server backup to a third party Just because there are far too many concerns regarding the websites themselves It's not exactly top secret but I prefer to have the data kept and backed up locally But thanks for the input
If it's only 1TB then you could just pick up a Microsoft 365 subscription, approx £50 per year when on sale, which gives you 6x 1TB OneDrive accounts to play with. This could also work in conjunction with a NAS for an extra offsite back up.
Hi and thanks for the extra information Yes I don't want a single drive for the mentioned reasons 2 single 1TB drives will suffice for my needs Thanks for the heads up, I will be comfortable installing, I am a bit of a tinkerer myself and enjoy building things like Tesla Coils in my spare time :D I'll have to use some home plugs to get plugged in though as my workhorse is too far from my router Should be fine The backup situation I just have never had the time to fully research But I will check out your links and thanks again
