Data migration to QNAP - Need Recommendation

Hello, I am new to QNAP and need a recommendation. I have a TS-659 Pro with 36TB RAW and would like to migrate about 10TB of data from another non-QNAP NAS.

What is the most efficient way to move the data over Gigabit? I would prefer to not use Microsoft robocopy if I don't have to. Is RTSS an option?

Thank you!

Mount the other NAS on FileStation and pull it over

Ok, will do. Thank you for the response!

I understand QNAP Active Sync would work over SMB or FTP. Any comment on which protocol would be best for performance over Gigabit? How about which one would be best for error recovery and reliability?
