Replacing faulty system disk

I noticed some bad SMART ratings for my system disk, where I also have some QNAP apps installed. The data files on the disk are regularly backed up to an external USB3 hard drive.

What's the recommended way to swap the system volume (no raid)? I did a backup of the QTS settings via the Control Panel. I also have a 8TB static data volume. Am I right to assume, this data volume settings are stored in the QTS settings, that I backed up?

So if I would do a fresh install of QTS on a new system disk and restore the QTS backup settings, the system should be in good shape again?

(this is a QNAP TS-451 runnings latest QTS / Firmware 4.4.1.1117)

What is the hard drive configuration on your NAS? Numbers of disks, etc.
