Accessing unsync'ed files?

Postby celstark » Thu Dec 07, 2017 4:49 pm

I'm looking at Google Team Drive and Synology Drive as options for an application here. Given that everything is already on a Synology NAS, the Synology setup has a leg up and improvements over Cloud Station make this even nicer. But, it appears as if, much like the older Google Drive and Cloud Station, you only see the files / folders that are part of the sync. That is, it's purely a "sync these files / folders" app. One nice feature of Team Drive is that you see everything in the Team Drive, regardless of whether it's got a local copy or not. If you've got it locally, you work on that and it gets sync'ed. If you don't have it sync'ed locally, you edit the cloud (NAS in this case) version of it.

Am I right in my understanding here?

Like sincarne suggested, create user accounts for other colleagues. Or create one user and let various people share that log in. When you set up a user account on your NAS, you can specify which folders on he NAS that user can access, whether it's sync'd or not.
