Hi All, Sorry I'm not quite an owner or enthusiast (as yet), in fact at the moment I know very little about NAS drives, but I'm looking to buy a DS220J and can't find anyone who can help me with a simple question.

Apologies if I'm in the wrong place but Synology Live Chat currently seems unavailable.

I want a NAS for family use. My siblings and I would like to share our family history files, family photos etc. DS220J seems the perfect choice however in the specs it states the maximum number of shared folders is 255. I need to clarify exactly what this means. eg. Does this include subfolders? Our one Family History Folder currently has around 420 subfolders and will continue to grow.

Something I read said that 255 was the maximum number it would show in one list but a larger number was possible. I'm not sure exactly what this mean't.

I'm not interested in cloud storage or backup or all the varied programs available on DSM (again as yet ...probably will be once I see it). For now I just want a drive I can give family members access to. Surely if you are giving somebody access to a drive it wouldn't matter how many folders, subfolders or files were on the drive.

Any advice and knowledge greatly appreciated.

Ta. MickG

Maybe if one of the admins knows and can give me an answer this doesn't need to be added to the public forum.
