Shared folders disappeared

Unread post by robiwan » Thu Feb 08, 2018 6:17 pm

After I moved a shared folder to another volume, all the existing shared folders disappeared. I can still see them in File Station, but they are empty. When I SSH into the NAS the folders are there and contain the files. I'm not sure what happened and can not create new Shared Folders neither. A lot of applications gives errors so I'm afraid the DSM installation has broken. Could this be the result of moving Shared Folders to another volume? Also, after a reboot the File Station is not running (or any other apps I installed and worked fine a day ago)

Could it have something to do with permissions? I'm not that knowledgeable with networking but was just a thought.
