    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

You can move a set of RAID drives to a new NAS and they will be recognised in the new NAS, although this may only work if your two NAS are from same manufacturer. NASs typically use Linux. A single disc from a RAID 5 can’t be read as a stand-alone drive, it needs at to be part of the original RAID set. For RAID 5, 2 of the 3 drives must be good (I.e 1 drive can fail and all data can be read ok)

You can backup Kodi and JRiver databases and settings. This is all metadata. You need to make your own backups of your actual media files, artwork etc. That’s pretty easy, just have external USB drives or external hard drives using a USB caddy style drive holder.
Thankis for the info, I didn't realize Genestl asked the same question earlier about switching drives like I did. Good to know.

Just all sounds like some far off obscure foreign language to me :cautious:
Jottacloud: Reasonably-priced and so far reliable (if quirky) cloud backup service in Norway. https://www.jottacloud.com/en/

rclone: Command-line tool that works much like rsync and is used for synchronizing source and backup data. Where rsync is only for use with local drives, rclone has the ability to back up to a surprisingly large list of cloud providers. Amazon used to be one of them but, being Amazon, they decided to disallow it. https://rclone.org/
