    Hi, Ive just had to remove a failed drive from my Synology CS407 4 TB nas, so after doing this and recreating a new volume 1 using Raid 0, I setup a video file to upload my move MKV files too, that were on the NAS prior to the disc failure. How ever the the nas won't let me upload any file larger than 2g ? can anyone shed light on this as it has always accepted the large MKV files (20-30 g) in the past. the only other changes i made was updating the DSM to 3.1-1638 not sure if this may have caused the restrictions.

    I've not used DSM, but I assume you can pick a filesystem when creating a new volume? Some filesystems have restrictions on file sizes.

    Also, RAID 0?

    RAID 0 is pretty dangerous to use unless you have a complete backup system in place.

    DSM normally formats in EXT3 or EXT4 file system which should not have any limits that your running into.

    If you have created a new array I would suggest removing it and starting again.
