I'd wish there would be an [Edit] option here, too.

Creating and maintaining the autorun.sh file must be done "the hard way" as shown here -> https://wiki.qnap.com/wiki/Running_Your ... at_Startup ... use the editautorun.sh approach (just the commands, or keep it as a file) - but the appropriate one matching your NAS model.

Many models aren't listed there. What's the correct way of doing this on an X79 model to permanently change the PATH environment variable?

The many not listed are "All HAL-based Intel and AMD NAS" models, like your x79.

Purpose? As this is not Mess-DOS, autorun.sh does not have some "direct" PATH manipulation functionality.

What I have done in the past is to create the autorun file. In the autorun file I call another another script file that is outside of that mount point. This way I only have to do the mount once. Any changes I need to make get done on the called script without having to mount and unmount.
Read the Online Manuals and use the forum search feature before posting.

It is a recommended to use RAID and have external backups. RAID will protect you from disk failure, keep your system running, and data accessible while the disk is replaced and the RAID rebuilt. Backups will allow you to recover data that is lost or corrupted, or from system failure. One does not replace the other.
