I have a Synology DS213j using two disks I had to spare, 2TB and 1.5TB. These are nearly full so I plan to replace them. To put all data onto the new disks I just wanted to connect the old disks to my desktop computer and copy the files. But now I read that this might not be possible because of the raid, even though I didn't really use one. The disks are in a Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR), but without any data protection so I can use the full space as you can see on the screenshot.
Also all my shared folders are explicitly on a single volume as you can see here
So as far as I know SHR just causes the volumes to appear as a single logical unit in this case but does not spread any data. Am I right about this? Can I just connect the old disks to my computer and copy the data or does SHR prevent this simple approach? If so, how else could I do it? To say upfront: I don't have 3.5TB of free storage to store the data elsewhere.
