    Dates are not Date Taken, but are EXIF Date and Time (original/digitized)

    When Synology Photos imports photo files, it categorizes them by Year and Month. This should be done by Date Taken, but instead it is appears to be by Date and Time (original or digitized). If this is missing, they are categorized as year 1970 and month 01. Trying to fix this by selecting the...

    Synology Photos on DSM 7 is not ready for prime time

    I am running DSM 6.x and Photo Station. No w I got a DS220+ so I installed DSM 7 and Synology Photos. What a disappointment! Can't even select a different background colour, like black, and the there is no Blog section. Until the photo app on DSM 7 becomes usable, I'll not shift to DSM 7. If I...

    Apparently the clock jumping ahead by an hour spurred an avalanche of warnings overnight, as "missed" snapshots queued for execution. Here's a partial list... You just have to love the world of Synology and their fine coding skills :ROFLMAO:

    DS1819+ Converting to SHR-2 - LONG TIME!

    I recently acquired two DS1819+. I had a DS418 and DS920+ for a short time before that then finally decided to just go big and get two 8 bay devices. So I converted my DS920+ to the first "Primary" DS1819+ by migrating over 4x12TB hard drives. Migration went fine. I then added 4x14TB hard drives...

    Time to upgrade my UPS, hints?

    The battery has gone bad obviously on my APC ES 550G and it signals this by a high frequent noise that really makes me mad. Are there a better/other model that is compatible with Synology NAS that indicates this kinds of things a little bit better? I am in no need for an expert UPS, it if can...

    First time Docker user, how does my Nextcloud look?

    No idea about Docker but I've got it running and installed Nextcloud and that seems to work too! :) I've used Nextcloud from the Docker hub as that seems the most official. There are a couple of things I'm unsure about: I'd like to make sure everything is correct before I add users and data...

    Hello all, I thought what a lovely day with the sun out, I'd sit inside and try and continue setting up NextCloud / MariaDB /phpMyAdmin in Docker. As you may know, I've managed to install (with the help of you all) MariaDB and Nextcloud, however I still have phpMyAdmin to go. Now with this...

    Solved Me again......This time its MariaDB

    Hello all, I thought I'd give myself a new challenge today and take a look at NextCloud. After installation (which was relatively pain-free), I arrived at the login/account creation page. After several unsuccessful attempts to get it up and running with a MySQL/MariaDB database, I remembered...
