Hello brains 🧠

I´ve used my Synology DS220+ for several months now and I´ve been really satisfied.
BUT suddenly I noticed that all my photos and media creates a copy of themself on my non-mirrored drive. Every media has double the size within the same drive. Not mirrored that is. Is it possible to fix this? I´ve got 3TB of media and documents on Dropbox that I would like to import do my NAS, but with this size it will be impossible.

THANKS IN ADVANCE,
Joacim

can you explain a bit on your setup? which folders are these photo's originally, where are they copied, do you use sync tools like drive?

Thanks @EAZ1964 :)

My photos are synced from Dropbox to my DS220+ via Cloud Sync. I´ve attached some screenshots if it helps?

Best regards,
Joacim

I do not really understand your explanation. You have two drives in mirror (RAID1), so there is no non-mirrored drive.

Is your issue that there are copies in Home and in homes?
Can you show me the cloudsync task with destination folders?
Do you run synology photos, and did you specify that all foto's are in personal photos?
