As with any backup solution, none of them are absolutely perfect. Hard drives and hardware in general age due to wear and tear and eventually give out. While you can actively use Synology units for streaming your movies, music, and a variety other services. We recommend only doing so on units providing a powerful redundancy solution. Multi drive units are RAID capable (RAID: Redundant Array of Independent Disks). It is important to note that RAID is NOT a Backup Solution it is just an additional method of attempting to maintain your data and its availability in the event of a hard drive failure. If the device were to go down or the entire array of hard drives becomes damaged. Then your data is lost!
Depending on your situation, which Synology unit you have, and how you intend to utilize the unit. You may want to consider attaching an external drive to your unit to store a daily backup of your most important files. This is to help ensure that if there is full failure of the array or unit itself. You will have your most important data on a stand alone drive outside the unit that isn’t affected by the failure and isn’t actively being used. It is strictly there to have a copy of your most important files copied to it on your schedule. Synology units have software built in to schedule these backups to external drives for this purpose.
Below are some good articles on RAID and why RAID is not a Backup Solution.
