I feel really stupid, as I'm usually pretty good at this stuff, but...

I'm trying to keep a folder on one NAS backed up on another, with live, raw data. It seems like what I see called Synology Drive ShareSync should do this, yet I cannot find this utility. I have Synology Drive Server set up on both NAS, but nowhere do I see any way to install or invoke ShareSync. Yet I see comments on this board talking about it as if it's "a thing". What am I missing? Thanks -- Ken

Never mind. Found it. Feel like an idiot. I've been at this for like two hours. And there it is!
 
I've run into the same thing. I can't find Synology Drive ShareSync, although I have Synology Drive installed. Where is it?

Amazing how difficult this is, until you know where to look (and why doesn't the documentation tell you the simple solution?). Click on the icon in the upper-left corner of the DSM desktop (see the screen shot).

Then, you'll see the Synology Drive ShareSync icon in the list of available apps, among all the others:

Yep! I found it there, posted about it, and then saw your message.

I agree that the docs need to show this. That would save a lot of frustration.
