There are several valid reasons IMO to reconfigure the (customized) EZCould ID used as "serverName" in the CloudStation Client.
- When the EZCould is not working anymore due to Synology service down(?) - or internet connection down - as I experienced today.
- When we change our Customized EZCould ID (Ex.: used to be the name of our girlfriend... who has been downgraded to "friend" or worst
- When we use an IP instead of the EZCould ID. In such a case, we could have to switch from the IP of our NAS on our LAN to our IP on the WAN, and vise-versa, depending on our location (Ex.: at home or at the office when using a laptop).
It's indeed really annoying to reconfigure the CloudStation Client as we have to delete the local folder used to synchronize with the NAS, then recreate this one empty, etc.. and then wait for a complete re-synchronization of the files... And that can be lot of files, data consuming for mobile devices connected via 3G.
Not all end-users will think about manually updating the serverName in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\CloudStation\conf\client.conf !
What about adding a menu on the Systray icon to change this EzCloud ID and also to automatically prompt the user to change it if it can't be resolved ?
