I would like to get 2 of these drives for Synology DS213. I have seen some reviews where people can’t get these drives recognized. I see they are compatiable with the DS213 but if I am running either Windows 7 or say server 2008 R2 would these be seen by either OS?
The type of drive used in a NAS is irrelevant from the “client” OS point of view. Windows 7 or 2008 don’t even know what the disks are. It’s accessing a file system, not a disk.
OK, that is what I thought except reading reviews I kept seeing people say that the drives were not recognized. So they must not have been in a NAS even though they said they were trying them in some sort of NAS device. Maybe this drive was just not supported by the manufacturer.
