The specs say this NAS supports macOS 10.12 and later. Does this mean you won't be able to back up a Mac running an earlier OS, like 10.11, to this NAS?
Asked by: John-Paul
For what it's worth, my 2012 Mac Pro is running 10.11 with a DS920+ (whose client specs also indicate macOS 10.12 and later). I have not observed any problems with Time Machine alternating between an internal HDD and the DS920+.

Does 'browser based' Synology DSM mean it has to have an internet connection? Probably a dumb question...
Asked by: Aaron
"OK so for 'updates and remote access' I see, but if I've got it sitting next to my computer and have the two connected by cable, would I still have access to my files if the internet goes down? Sorry to keep beating on this...." -- Correct. To access your files locally in your home network, you don't need internet access.

The two NVME 2280 slots are inside next to drive bay one on the left inner wall of the Synology. The 10gb card would go into the PCIE slot.
