Btrfs File System

Evolvement of the next-generation file system

Btrfs file system in DSM 6.1 extends its model coverage with more advanced functionality. Learn more about Btrfs file system

File self-healing

Btrfs file system is able to auto-detect corrupted files (silent data corruption) with mirrored metadata, and recover broken data using the supported RAID volumes, which include RAID 1, 5, 6, 10, and SHR.

Instant SMB server-side copy

The standard SMB server-side copy requires processing time, even when copying data to the same volume. With the help of Btrfs fast-clone technology, you can achieve instant file copy over SMB on your computer if the source and destination are both on the same Btrfs volume.

Extended Btrfs coverage
