.odoc Files

Postby jsprague » Wed Dec 06, 2017 12:10 am

Hello,

I am confused about the .odoc files that are created by Office. In Drive, when you download them, they are saved as a docx file. That's good. When you download them from Filestation, the are saved as a .odoc file which can't be opened by MS Word, or any other apps I have. If I map a drive to a folder that has Office docs, they are in .odoc file. Again, can't do anything with those. So, I guess I am asking what the point of Office is if it creates files that really can only be accessed on the Synology via Filestation or Drive?

Am I missing something?

Thanks!

I have the same question. I use drive client on linux and all the files are odoc or osheet. They are not real files. They are actually references to internal objects.
For example:
{"object_id":"1026_XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.sh"}

I am trully confused how this is supposed to work and how was it designed in the first place.
DiskStation DS716+II is great hardware which runs a pretty buggy but beautiful software.

Documents in SynologyOffice behave like GoogleDocs, which means two (or more) users are able to simultaneously edit same file. Ofcourse it would be nice if there would be folder copy of file (thus rendering file available over SMB ofr AFP), however objects are stored in (some type of) internal database. But at least, from first version, office is able to directly navigate M$/LibreOffice files through well known shares.
