    Is it possible to have 2 or 3 different HDs for the RAID-5 option? (one is USB-HDD, 2 others are internal). or it only works with the same 3 HDs?

    This firmware update is excellent. I had all but given up on my DNS-323 then I found alt-f. D-Link's firmware is buggy and just unreliable. Alt-f works great and far exceeded my expectations, It is fairly easy to setup, requires a little reading and a rudimentary understanding of LINUX is helpful but not mandatory. Preserved the data that was already on the drive, that was a bonus for me. All and all I give this a 5 stars across the board.

    New life for my dlink NAS as backup storage server. Work like a charm: easy to use (web ui or command line), easy to extend (ffp, ...)

    Brings new life to nice hardware, neglected by D-Link from day one. Managed with great care by its maintainer.

    Well done! As d-link seems to have dropped the ball on supporting my DNS-323 (and who can blame them as it is an old box), Alt-F is a great alternative. I had a few minor permissions issues when I loaded the firmware, but my data was safe and I was eventually able to access everything. I'm looking forward to the next version!
