NAS new hand

Hi all,
thinking of setup a NAS to storage photos,
maybe 916+ with 4 3TB WDRed , running SHR,
on their website,it said 用於資料保護:3TB , 可用空間:9TB.
what does it mean? does it means SHR will use 9TB space ? 3TB is free for other usage?
is it also meaning Cloud Station Backup will use 9TB , then can i use 3TB for timemachine?
thanks!

sorry for my bad english,can not type chinese.

thank you

即係代表你4隻3TB放埋一齊, 實際只得9TB可用, 3TB會redundancy用途而唔用得
響呢9TB入面, 你可以再自行決定time machine / cloud station backup / shared folder等點用, 總共加埋唔可以超過9TB data, 你當佢變成一隻9TB HDD咁用就得

i see! much appreciate your answer!

for example ,this mean i can create a 5TB proportion inside the 9TB? and then use the remaining 4TB as normal file storage ?
and when storing file, shall i just drag them into the system or use DSM?  
thank you again!

冇呢個concept, 係你放幾多data先用幾多, 而唔係一早食哂幾TB位
另外, 你知唔知Cloud Station Backup有咩用?  Cloud Station Backup係指由一台Synology NAS backup去另一台Synology NAS喎

如果你做本機backup, 應該用Hyper Backup, 但係唔建議你將同一volume又做data又做backup
因為一炒volume就連backup都炒埋, 根本冇用

um... actually i am still quite confusing even i read so many about NAS.
how about i talk out my case first?
Basically , im using 3TB iMac, and had been using a 3tb timecapsule( i know i am 7,please dont laugh). but the hdd inside the timecapsule just dead a few days ago. so im looking for a much safer,bigger space to storage my photos beside burning a bluray.  
And here are the problem im facing and want to solve:
1.move my very old file from iMac to some safe space to free my imac HDD space

And read so many about NAS and here are what i concluded:
1.bigger stroage space
2.i may use RAID5 , because its much safer

am i correct? or should i just simply buy an 3TB external hard disk?

thanks!!!!

如果只得你一個人用, 請直接用USB HDD
WD MyBook 8TB先<$2000

RAID-5原意係防止死一隻HDD total lost

or have to disconnect, unplug power everytime?

LaCie除左外形之外, 諗唔到有乜原因買佢
