    Synology / 60'000 tracks


    I currently have a couple of external USB drives attached to a pc running slimserver. I'm just thinking of buying a Synology Disk Station DS-106.

    I have two main questions

    a) has someone tried out to use synology with over 60k tracks? if so, how is the performance?

    b) how many external USB drives can i attach to the synology. I saw in the specs, that it has 3 USB ports, but if I add a USB hub, can I then add more USB disks?

    It's a bit slow even without that many tracks, due to the small amount of RAM. We would need at least the Swiss DS-106x with 128MB, preferably more, for decent performance at scanning and searches.

    You can not use a USB hub with the DS-106, and if you're thinking of having that many drives then better buy a DS-406 and use your current USB drives for backup.
