Shared Folder Sync?

Furthermore, the Shared Folder Sync feature allows users to synchronize specific folders from one DiskStation to another on real time basis. Users will be able to share documents seamlessly and have an immediate backup DiskStation up and running right away in case of hardware failure.

I don't remember about this feature in the 3.1 beta. Did anybody already tried to see what is it?
Is it useful only in syncing DS to DS?
DS-411 (DSM 4.3-3827u5) w/ 2x WD20EFRX + 1x WD10EFRX
DS-106j (DSM 3.0-1357), PATA-to-SATA adapter, 2.5" HM250HI

Yes, I am waiting to see this from Windows to DS folders (bi-directional sync).

Currently use Allway Sync which is actually pretty good but imagine that if it was natively support on the DS it would be much faster.

This was one feature I was REALLY looking forward to BUT much to my disappointment seems to be one of the few features NOT supported on my DS207+. :(

The DS207+ was included in the beta program for the folder sync, but I found that it didn't work

I did some testing for Synology and submitted kernel logs

So now that it has 3.1 has gone 'live', it seems that Synology have disabled it for the DS207+

I can only assume that they found a problem in getting it to work

It does however work OK if the DS207+ is the unit being sync'd to i.e DS209+II > DS207+
DS-1010+ FW 4.2 3202 - SHR - 5 x Seagate ST31000528AS 1TB hard drives (using 3 drives at the moment to save on power)
DS-209+II FW 4.2 3202 - Raid 0 - 2 x Western Digital WD7500AAKS 750GB hard drives (on modification shared folder sync (mirroring) from DS-1010+)
DS-207+ FW 3.1 1632 - Raid 0 - 2 x Western Digital WD7500AAKS 750GB hard drives (now passed on to my son in University)
DS-106e FW 3.1 1613 - No longer used, but still sitting on my shelf

Well it is syncing to the DS207+ is what I want to do and cannot.

It seems I have to enable this capability on the 7 and there is no way to do that in the release version!!!!!

On my Ds209+II if I select the 7 as destination it says service not enabled!

Have you enabled Netbackup in the settings on the DS207+?

It seems all x07 series dont have the sync tab, however i can sync to the 407 from my 410.
Since the FW isn't working as it should on 07's i think synology owe us another build for the 07's as a final 'get it right' firmware.

I've been waiting for Sync/mirror DS units.. if Syn pull the plug on 07's now.. i certainly won't be happy.

But so far so good with sync, had a few problems.. eg) i took encryption off my 410 to sync folders.. and upon reboot the share is once again encrypted.
It syncs the encrypted files as you would see them on a standard backup. but then again the FW on my 410 is driving me nuts.

and as an added bonus, Synology change photo & blog a tiny bit again... so it's play with php/html in /usr/syno/synoman/phpsrc/ etc.. etc.. etc...

Synology why do you change things like this which has ZERO overall impact on the blog & PS?

Just out of curiosity; when using the sync service.. where are the @app / @photo / @blog stored?
Should i have SQL enabled before sync?

Can the Shared Folder Sync be forced to run on x07 models?

Just tried again.

I can set up the Sync up to the point it trys to validate with the DS207+ and then I get the error message sync service not available.
