I just bought a Synology DS220J and my m1 MacMini has been crashing at night when it's supposed to be working 🙄
I setup CCC to copy my Data volume from my Mac to the NAS at 0100 (while I’m not using the Mac) 🙄. The next morning I have found my Mac has rebooted and CCC starts to try and make to make the volume clone. It happened several times and it appears that it may crash when trying to make the clone.
I believe I have read that CCC doesn’t like to clone to disks that aren’t formatted in an Apple format. I wanted to have redundant drives so I have the disks running in a raid 1 configuration using the Synology to make the raid instead of using the SHR format.
The Synology is set to hibernate when idle for 20 minutes. Is it possible the Synology disk format is causing my M1 Big Sur to crash or is it the hibernation?
If it’s a format problem what is the best way to permit this work? Do you think it might work if I attached a powered USB formatted in either APFS or Mac OS Extended to the DS220J USB?
Also, It appears TimeMachine set to run once per day in the very early AM is able to deal with the hibernation setting.
Thanks for any advice,
