I want to mirror two folders. I have done this using the command

mount --bind / volume/foo/folder_one /volume/foo/folder_two

And it works so that I can see the files and everything works as it should in file station and in samba share.

But not in Synology Drive. There, the folder folder_two is empty.

Does anyone know how to solve this ??

root folder "foo" is where? In root of your volume folder? If so is that foo folder activated as a Teams folder using Drive Admin console? If you can see it there you can activate/enable it and it will be visible inside your Drive UI

Yes The foo folder are activated as teams folder. I can see both folders in drive. But I can only see the files in folder_one and the other folder "folder_two" can I see but it is empty.

I have the right access to both the shared folder and to the program "Synology Drive" it is not possible with the admin account either.

Simple test>
create a new folder in the problematic Shared folder, put there some files/folders and check the visibility in the Drive client side. When it's working you have problem in the transferred permissions in the mounted folder

then

just to be sure:
1. Check the ACL setup for the target Shared folder, contains mounted folder:
Control panel/Shared folder ... select the Shared folder ... Action button or right click ... is it the ACL enabled?

2. Check the Permissions in File station for the mounted folder ...right click Properties/Permissions ... Apply to this folders and sub-folders check-box

3. Check the Drive Admin Console ... Settings/User sync profiles - just to be sure if don't have some limitations here

4. Check Syno Drive client by browser - still doesn't work? For an admin group also? Then permissions are the reason.

When no success, then check this kind of attitude - rsync - mentioned here:

Nothing seems to work. Is it someone else who has made it work or is it just me who has a problem ?? The problem with rsync if you sync in both directions is that it is difficult to delete a file because then it is synced back from the other direction.

From the Knowledgebase.

  • The below data/shared folders cannot be synced across platforms:
    • Mounted remote folders or virtual drives
    • External USB drive shares
    • All the Docker container data stored
    • All the replicated data from Snapshot Replication
    • Shared folders that no users are able to access (i.e. when the folders are being edited or mounted/unmounted).
This is for Team folders.

Why don't you make the original folder a Team folder and make sure that access permissions are set so that only the right users can have access? Access permissions should also be honoured for lower folders too, if my memory is right.

Or place the content in a Team folder (or sub-folder) and then mount that to the other [original] location.

to be sure: above proposed solution was about single way rsync - maybe you didn't even try to test it

Hi P.
Mounted (also remote) folders are working for me in Drive - see here:
tested, works

This solution resolves the problem both for Synology Drive Client and for ShareSync.

The annoying problem is that folder tree is copied to the remote NAS, and lnk and zip files are copied. Other files are not copied (like docx, xlsx, graphics).

On the remote NAS, the admin should go to Synology Drive Admin console.
Then clisk Settings (left-side menu),
Then clisk the tab User's syncing profiles,
Then select the current profile from the list.
Then click the button Edit just above.
A window entitled "Edit sync profile" pops up.
In the tab "File Filter" check filetypes in the list of the File Filter. All types should be checked.
The maximum file size should be 0, which means no size restriction.
On the second tab, entitled "Applied User", make sure whether the remote user is listed and has a tick. He should have, by default.
Click Apply.
Now syncing tasks work: documents an graphic files are copied to remote NAS.

It took me weeks to find it out. The reason was that the all filetypes on the file filter list were unchecked by default.

Remember that the File filter list on remote NAS (Drive admin console) defines what the admin of the remote NAS allows you to be backuped.
A similar list on your NAS (in ShareSync) or the one in Synology Drive Client (inder Windows) define filetypes which YOU are intending to send.

Good luck,
