    How can I share a Moments Album via Reverse Proxy?

    I want to set up an album of photos for my grandma to view. I know that it is frowned upon, but I want to use just the public link option instead of creating a password/username for her so she doesn't have to remember login info. I'd kill the link after a couple of days once she's...

But I would like to have an option to allow Write for such users as well and I do not want to create a new account. Just to do quick share link creation but to have RW option. Is it...

    Question Who accessed a Drive’s publicly shared file?

    Hi, I’ve shared a Synology Drive file using its public link generator with anyone with the link to be able “to view”. Where can I find a log of who accessed the file and when (ip address and time)? If I create a shared public link using File Station, when someone accesses the file, a log will...

    Solved SMB share disconnects

    On a Mac I'm connecting to my shared folders in the usual command-K way. I get the list of folders and access one. It mounts and - as usual - the server appears in my Finder window under 'Locations'. Then I remember I need to access that other folder so, as I'm already connected, I click on the...

    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...

    Question Drive share links?

    Hi All, I’ve been using Drive for my iPadOS and iOS applications and so far I like it. Now I’m trying Drive’s sharing feature. I think it’s better than sharing using DSM as it won’t expose the DSM assigned port, provided that you’ve added a port for Drive in the DSM’s Application Portal...

    When I send a share link now, the following (advertisement) is included before the actual link! This happens when I paste in the dreaded WhatsApp. I don't recall this happening before! I'm being used to advertise Synology. It’s a DS not a free app! Must be another one of the community guy's...

    It took me a while to discover this feature when I first got my DiskStation. It’s very useful. Together with the “file request” option, they compliment each other for a very nice solution that allows you to interact with users who don’t have user accounts on your DS. Share file links video...
