I went to access files on my NAS yesterday, and saw that half of the shares on my Synology NAS are empty. The directories exist, but are empty. Files gone. I’m the only one who even knows how to access these files, and also the only one with credentials. I didn’t touch the files all week. They were definitely there last weekend
But other shares are fine. What the?!?
I’ve tried all sorts of Synology troubleshooting and it thinks everything is 100% fine. Clearly if I am missing a few terabytes of data, everything is not fine. But the Synology OS thinks it’s fine. Not looking good for you, Synology, if a RAID system can lose terabytes and your software reports everything as fine and dandy.
But then I realized, hmm…is it possible that something actually deleted the files? I did reinstall the latest version of Audirvana on a Mac Mini last weekend that had a fresh OS install on it. So I told Audirvana the location of the 3 network shares where I have high resolution flac files and let it search those.
Those 3 shares are the only ones that are missing files.
I’m not saying Audirvana deleted my files. But I’m curious if this is even at all possible, because the only thing that accessed those files in the past week was Audirvana as it scanned the nas directions to add the files to its library.
