Shared Folder Sync - error 213

I recently bought a second NAS (DS1817+). Let's call this NAS #2. I used Shared Folder Sync (SFS) to copy the contents of my existing DS1813+ (NAS #1) to it over 3 days. All good. I've now reformatted NAS #1 to single disk redundancy to gain some extra capacity. Now I want to backup NAS #2 to NAS #1...

Re: Initial parity check - ETA several weeks?

Okay my mistake. I was looking at the "Volume" widget which has a big "1%" displayed and text next to it saying its doing a parity check.

Turns out that is the drive usage percent not the parity check percent.

I looked at the volume status and its now at 36% which is much more reasonable.

Initial parity check - ETA several weeks?

I set up a new DS1817+ with 8 x 8TB drives yesterday. After 18 hours I'm only at 1% complete so this is likely to take ~100 days at this rate.

Is this normal? Is the process linear or can I expect it to get faster as it proceeds?

Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited is no more - what to replace it with?

So Amazon are removing the unlimited plan and I currently have 23TB stored in it.

Any recommendations for a replacement service?

Ideally one that works with Cloud Sync (or has a Synology package) and that supports backup of USB drives attached to the NAS.

On and that is priced comparatively.

Re: Max filesize limit of 45GB on Amazon Drive using Cloud Sync?

Only just found out that increased this from the previous limit of 10GB. However it seems to be an arbitrary size set in a config file: https://automatizeblog.wordpress.com/2016/11/29/increase-max-file-size-limit-cap-on-synology-cloud-sync-amazon-cloud-drive/ I'm trying it at 100GB. Will report back...

Cloud sync remote mounted folder (USB drive)?

I have task for sync of my main NAS volume to my Amazon Cloud drive which works perfectly.

I'm trying to add a task to sync the 4TB USB drive attached to my NAS in the same way using Cloud Sync. It won't let me do it saying "you cannot sync remote mounted shared folders".

Any workaround for this?

Disk reconnection count

I've been getting one of my 8 drives reporting a single reconnection count each month for the last 12 months. None of the other drives have any.

Is this something to be concerned about?

I intend to buy it, like I said I'm just waiting for the new version.

If click and hold works then that's great.

Re:  SynoDS: Synology DL Station on your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

Thanks. Two more queries: 1. Does the built-in browser support the add blocking I have enabled in my Safari (via jailbreak tweak)? Otherwise there could be lots of ads and pop-ups. I think its via the hosts file. 2. I don't use torrents, only direct downloads via uploaded.net so it seems a long hold...

Hi. Just discovered this topic and I'm waiting for the new version to appear on iTunes. In the meantime, I have a question. I currently cut and paste URLs from Safari into DS Download (now DS Get) which works but is quite tedious (browse, copy download URL, switch to DS Get, paste URL, switch back t...
