Right, so I've now got 6TB of backup storage in my Synology NAS box. I'm going to use this as a backup for my unRAID NAS box. All I have to do now is figure out how to set rsync up to do the necessary stuff and then sit back and wait a few hours/days until it copies it all over.
The 2 NAS are located in different buildings to avoid any problems in case one goes missing or gets damaged! They are connected with 1GB ethernet.
The Synology, which I am using as the backup device, has 2 x 3TB disks in, which are set as RAID 0. I'm not too bothered if one of the disks fails in this box as it is only a backup of the main unRAID NAS anyway.

Jeez how do you fill 6TB with data?
Out of curiosity if both the nas are in separate buildings how are the buildings linked to the network? Fibre? Copper?
 
Well I put 2 x 3tb disks in so they would last longer. The primary NAS has 4tb capacity at present.
 
One is in the garage the other the attic. Utp between them.
