TS-809U-RP TO TS-EC879U-RP

Post by gkonstanto7 » Mon Oct 21, 2019 6:59 pm

Halo,

due to motherboard failure of a qnap TS-809U-RP firmware 4.2.6 i had to move disks to a qnap TS-EC879U-RP firmware 4.3.5 that qnap says is compatible.

I can see the data and everything is working but there is warning message : "The firmware versions of the system built-in flash (4.3.5 Build 20181114) and the hard drive (4.2.6 Build 20170729) are not consistent. It is recommended to update the firmware again for higher system stability".
If i procced with the firmware update to 4.3.6 (4.3.5 is not available on qnap site) will i lose my data or not (10 TB)?

thank you

data should stay intact

but have external backups in any case

also that legacy volume will be missing out on features..so you should wipe and restore that new unit
