Stalled Upgrade On Synology


Recommended Posts

I started the update to 2.0.93 from (.95) thinking this would take the normal 1min max.  Little did I know it would take around 45min.  The culprit was that there was a scan of all active volumes for .sync folders.  Holy cow.  My backup volume that uses dirvish to backup unix(ish) systems was included in that scan.  dirvish uses hardlinks to minimize disk usage but ends up with TONs of hard links.  I don't want to count the total number, but it is in the millions I'm sure.  


Autoscanning the full set of volumes on a NAS is probably NOT a good idea guys!
