Helllo,

I use the Cloud Sync package on my 218J to back up one of the NAS folders to Google Drive and have been doing so without problems for quite some time. The folder is call "cloud." Recently, Cloud Sync has started deleting all the files in the cloud folder after they have been stored on Google Drive. In some cases, subfolders under cloud are also deleted. In others the subfolders are retained but their contents are deleted. In a few cases, the subfolders are retained along with their files.

I think this started after the last update of Cloud Sync, but I can't be positive. I am positive it is still happening. I dropped a project folder containing about twenty files and a subfolder with additional files into "cloud" yesterday. it was intact when I went to bed. This morning the project folder under "cloud" contained only the subfolder and the subfolder's contents. None of the individual project files were present.

Needless to say, my trust in Synology has been pretty much destroyed. Has anyone else had this happen or know what is going on?

Thanks.

Ugh. Not sure what to say. There are some users here that use CS but I am not one of them. Amazon killing their API for CS is also not helping the cause, but haven't heard Google Drive trouble so far. I'm sure someone will share their experience.

I’m using Cloud Sync (Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, Google Drive) and can access the sync’ed files via Syno Drive/Cloudmounter instead of all the desktop agents. But only Dropbox has much in it, for historical reasons.

I can have a look this weekend to test if files go missing in Google Drive.
