Please advise a beginner how to get and install the Synology Drive Client - in my DS218j under Windows 10. I need the otpion to choose between Synchro and Continuous mode.
I can't see it in my Package Centre and wonder if it has been superseded by something better? I'm also puzzled as to how to install *.mat downloads.

Thankyou, Colin

If we are talking about Drive server to install on your nas then you can try and install new it from this pkg file using the Manual install button in Package Center

Thanks Rusty.
So that's how you load Synology files! OK so far: I have the Admin Console open. What Should I do next please?

Well you should have have that in Package center as well but ok this is an alternative way to get it.

Regarding next step, it depends what you want to achieve with this solution.

You will have to install a win10 client for Drive as well. You can get the links inside the drive server web UI or using the Download section on the synology site for your NAS model.

Thanks again Rusty
I think I ought to be able to work out the rest myself.

This forum is a blessing for the uninitiated, I would be lost without it.

It's probably time to contact Synology Support to take a look at it. They may be able to tweak something.
