That's the default per user manual (says so plainly .. I should have checked) and allows 63.99 TB volumes.

Sorry for the delay. This night i finished my static volume (about 30 hours) with 16K bytes por inode (maximum size 64TB). Now i have my first RAID 6 with SSD (pool) for QNAP apps, music, photos and programs (about 386GB space) and my second RAID 6 HDD (35TB space) only for movies and series.

1 - For my RAID 6 SSD i think to do 2 volumes with snapshots: 1 for QNAP apps and the second for music (9GB)/ programs (64GB) / photos (43GB) or only one volume with 4 folders ? i think thick volume ?

2 - For my RAID 6 HDD i must enable bitmap ?

3 - For the SMART test: Quick test every weeks, complete test every month ? RAID scrubbing every month (it's possible to plan that ?)
