    Hello, sorry for that question. Of course I've seen many posts about comparison Drive with File Station or with Cloud Station.

    Bi-directional synchronization and folder permissions

    Hi everyone, Until now, we have been using Synology Cloud Station in our small company for two-way synchronization. Very efficient for having files offline and working from home on files that are on the server. It worked well on both our PCs and MAC. Our team is growing and not everyone has...

    Home Video files stored under “Photo” folder not visible on TV (DLNA)

    My home video files are stored under the Photo folder of DSM rather than under the Video folder which are only reserved for downloaded movies. When accessing the mapped Photo folder in Windows 10 or Photo Station, all home video files therein are visible and playable. However when accessing...

    Slideshow from Shared Folder on iOS?

    I have an old Android tablet that I have used for years to stream random pictures from a shared photo folder on my Synology NAS. I used an app called PhotoCloud, which worked pretty well. Now the screen on the tablet is going out and I wanted to repurpose an ipad to take over the job. Unlike...

    Public Drive Folder Sync'd with "Normal" Folder

    I have been using my Synology NAS for a few years but I am a relative novice. My business uses our NAS as a shared internal project data source for our employees. We have a regular folder structure for every project. I'd like to setup one of these sub-folders to sync to a read only drive...

    Question Task Schedule output results to User folder?

    I hoped to collect Task Scheduler's output results under my administrator's /home/logs folder... but (oddly?) the /home path isn't available for this, allowing access only to shared folders. Since the setting says... Note: This function is applicable to user-defined scripts only. it seems...

    Question Mount / unmount remote folder from script?

    I would like to be able to mount a remote folder (CIFS / SMB), perform an rsync, and dismount the folder. If not all that, at least check if the folder is mounted and mount it if not already mounted. (I've already got the rsync script running.) I have no trouble mounting the folder using the...

    Slow copy from folder to folder

    I'm moving some files (in some folders) from one shared folder to another. I've dragged 'n' dropped in File Station. Currently running at ~120 KB/sec. That seems a bit slow. I thought Btfrs copied 'instantly' like Apple's APFS. I have just under 400 GB to copy, its going to take over a day?

    Is there a way to share a link to a folder through Synology Drive in a way that it doesn't require using the Drive app?

    I can actually share individual files with Drive and they do not require downloading via an app. They can just be downloaded via the web browser. However, when I send a link to a folder via text, my friend sees this. I want this to work kind of like sharing links in Dropbox works. I don't...

    Solidworks won't save files to a synced folder anymore. Why not?

    I'm running solidworks engineering simulations on my PC. For 6 months, I'd been saving the results to a local folder on my hard drive that was also synced to my NAS. I have versioning active on my NAS, so it tracks changes made to the files on my NAS but doesn't plug up my PC hard drive. This...
