Handy tips for protecting your files
Keep your data safe and sound with these backup and security solutions
Hard drives fail. Computers get infected by viruses. Mobile devices break or disappear. Ask yourself, if one of these accidents happened to you, would your files be safe? Be it your home videos or business documents, your data deserves a great protection solution, so your files — your memories — stay with you forever.
Back up your data to an off-site location
When it comes to protecting important files, businesses can never be too safe. Unexpected events like thievery or a natural disaster can wipe out your data infrastructure, leaving your business paralyzed. To prevent such situations, Synology NAS lets you easily back up data to an off-site destination, such as another Synology NAS or rsync-compatible servers. Learn more about Backup & Replication
Manage drives and mirror data with SHR
No matter the brand or model, there’s always a chance a drive might fail, possibly resulting in permanent data loss. For models with two or more hard drive bays, Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) storage technology automatically manages storage capacity and mirrors your data across each drive. That way, your files remain readily accessible, even if a drive breaks or dies. Learn more with the interactive RAID calculator
