    I've just bought a couple of 6TB WD Reds. I was thinking of testing them before putting them in my NAS and filling them up. What's the best way to do this? Are there built in tools in the Synology NAS, or should I put it in a caddy and connect to windows and use a tool from there?

    Synology can do a full disk check.
