Synology SMART test

At home I have a synology DS212J. This is a NAS with some nice features. I configured it to SMART test itself and notify me when something is wrong with one of the disks. Here is how I did this on DSM4.2.

Open the menu and start the Storage manager.
01-storage.manager

The Storage manager shows the disks in the synology. Both are in normal state, which means okay.
02-test.scheduler

With Test Scheduler the Quick Test and the Full Test can be scheduled. This way the tests are performed weekly and monthly without me logging in.
03-test.all.disks

When a SMART test fails I want the know. That is where Notification comes in.
04-notification

Check the notification service applicable on S.M.A.R.T. test failure on internal disk.
05-SMART.failure.notification

It’s only a matter of time before the disks go south. Make sure you have a backup of your precious files.
