There are actually more than two types of "reset" available.
Via the "QNAP Admin WebUI": “System Administration
” > “Hardware
This method will wipe everything, including your data in /share/MD0_DATA (and/or /share/HDA_DATA).
It does however allow to to enable the reset button on the back of the NAS.
When using the reset button there are two types of reset available, including both a "basic system reset" and an "advanced system reset".
Check out the "Hardware
" section of the manual for information on these.
I recently needed to do a Factory reset myself. I reviewed all the options, and eventually decided on the "advanced reset" method, as I wanted all the NAS configuration settings reverted to "factory default" but I did NOT
want my data area (/share/MD0_DATA) destroyed.
I was very nervous doing it, as I definitely did not want to loose my data, but I proceeded with the "advanced system reset", and it did do what I wanted, Well it mostly did. It did not restore my Multimedia Station/Photo Station/Music Station functionality. I determined that it neglected to create a directory, so the Qhttpd.sh process was failing. I simply manually created the missing directory, and restarted /etc/init.d/Qhttpd.sh" manually. Now all is working as it should, including my Multimedia Station/Photo Station/Music Station functionality, which ironically enough, was the reason I required the reset in the first place.
