Best answer: The best RAID for your Synology NAS depends on how many disks you have installed. If available, it's usually best to use Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) unless you wish to pick a specific level yourself.
[h=3]What is RAID?[/h]RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. It's a group of independent disks that operate as a fused single array. Instead of having five drives installed on a NAS and acting as individual volumes, you can combine them together to act as a single storage medium. This helps improve performance and redundancy in case a drive fails.
