Do a file name search and see if they got dropped in a different folder? Also, copying over to a NAS shouldn't have deleted the originals from the old drive.

I would the trail of Tree Size pro and see if you can find your data.

It looks like Qnap's "File Station" has a 2GB limitation.  It will not move files larger.  Were your videos larger than 2GB?
This doesn't make any sense why they would have this limitation but there was a thread in their support forum regarding this. The work around is not to use the included software and just use Windows Explorer to transfer files.

Yes the videos were over 2GB. I used Tera Copy not file manager or windows.

Have you tried wildcard search terms for the filetypes of the files you're missing?  Examples...*.avi, *.mpg, *.jpeg, etc.

Files are gone from the source? If so, stop doing anything with that drive to maximize recovery chances. There is recovery software or you can send it to a recovery company. Regardless, the biggest thing is to completely stop using the source drive because the more you use it, the more old data will be overwritten.

Future reference. Make backups. Copy first, verify data, and then delete.

It's because QNAP'S use a 32bit posix linux kernel, there is a know file size limit of 2gb

LOL no. It may be a problem with the version of samba they chose to use. Maybe if, for some reason, they are using an old FAT filesystem on drives that has a 2gb file size limitation.

32bit linux kernels use 32-bit integers for file access and locking, yielding a maximum size of 2^31 - 1 bits, aka 2GB, the only workaround I know of is to compile in LFS system calls that were established in the Large File Summit into the kernel.  Whether this was done or not is entirely up to the developers at QNAP.

They'd have to intentionally turn this off which wouldn't make sense on a NAS, or most any device. LFS has been in the kernel since 2.4.something in the early 2000s. Thats the only reason I scoff at the idea.

They probably used some ancient embedded version Linux with an old-ass kernel, because QNAP consumer grade device.  I've never been impressed with their low-end devices, only *slightly* better than BuffaloNAS boxes.
