First off here's reference link to the initial post on this forum.

Found all sorts of suggestions and ended up with the following to stop the random disappearing/reappearing files and folders.
By creating a nsmb.conf file, which I did via TextEdit, saved as a plain text file, minus the .txt. Then placing this file in a user's preferences folder. Which is located at ~/Library/Preferences
In the nsmb.conf file I have the following:
Code: Select all
[default] signing_required=no streams=yes notify_off=yes port445=no_netbios unix extensions = no veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/
I have 35+ Macs connecting to a shared folder that contains hundreds of subfolders and then thousands of files within all those subfolders.
Quick note, the last line of the above settings can be done via DSM > Control Panel > File Services > SMB Advanced Settings and then check the veto files check box and copy/paste "/._*/.DS_Store/"
Posting this here in hopes it may help others and also in hopes that Synology will read this and continue their R&D with MacOS connecting via SMB to their NAS servers.
