OK - as a replacement of Syno DS File client for iOS, it’s up to you
I opened a Numbers spreadsheet that's on my NAS using Files app and it showed an option to open it or make a copyDid you try it with iOS apps like Numbers, Pages and Keynote?
The thing about iOS is that it copies the file you’re working on to the iOS device. You’re not actually editing the file on the NAS (via WebDAV for instance) which is problematic for me and solved by using Drive (flushes changes back to the NAS).
I'm guessing versioning doesn't work, but haven't looked. Not sure what you mean about ' its own structure on the NAS'.Does this behave like Drive without versioning and the need for its own structure on the NAS?
If so, I might buy it despite the very ugly icon (IMHO)
True, but those are features I don't use so not important to me.OK - as a replacement of Syno DS File client for iOS, it’s up to you
then you will lose two of useful feature of Synology DS File - create shared links to your data + and all previously generated links management (same as in DSM File station)
but when you preferred different data connection App, it’s always up to you.

That‘s goodI opened it rather than making a copy, edited it then closed it. I then went to my NAS, found the spreadsheet and found it was the updated edited version.

I only really use this for file management (moving, renaming, copying elsewhere etc.), so don't really use it to open and work on files straight off the NAS.
SFTP and SSH both default to the same port TCP 22. Depending on the implementation it can be an extension of the SSH server or separate from it:I’m I right in assuming that the use of this app requires SSH to be enabled for SFTP?
I've read good things about FileBrowser
I dunno, it opened the file in Numbers so it must 'know something'The message (to me at least) implies that Numbers didn’t “see” this file as an iOS Numbers file (I know you said it is) and that’s why it’s offering to make a copy, not because it’s sensing that this is a remote file.
Yep, that's right.However with this (Shellfish), you can work with any file on the NAS as long as you have the correct user privilege.

When I read your reply I remembered that SFTP has its own settings in DSM. ThanksIn DSM they default to the standard port but you can set different ports for SSH and SFTP. You can deny Internet to SSH while still allowing access to SFTP: setup appropriate firewall and port forward rules. Also, SFTP isn't restricted to admin users, unlike SSH.
