Pardon my ignorance here (Newbie), I am wondering if this is possible. I dont have enough HDD slots and need to add additional storage. I have a Synology DS1019+ sitting there with 50TB available. Can i have UNRAID share storage via network to this device? I know i could go and buy bigger 2.5" HDD's, but that cost money. Appreciate the help. 


Current setup is as follows:

Dell R610 (6) 2.5" HDD slots.

Unraid can't directly use that storage as its own for the array or cache. but it can access that data over the network using the Unassigned Devices plugin.


If you haven't already, install the Community Applications plugin. Then go to the Apps page to install Unassigned Devices.

I dont see it on my Dashboard, which was making me think i screwed it up somehow. I can only see the SSD i have in there



I just want i guess to know its there and available. Going to try and set up Blue Iris in a VM and use that extra storage for NVR
