Thread starter Cobra Start date Jan Latest activity Latest activity: Jan Replies 10 Views 2, Tags photo photo station question.
Currently reading. Just tried DS Photo and Photostation and it looks good. Problem is it only wants to save to a specific folder called "Photo" on the NAS. I am using Synology drive to sync all my photos from my pc but it wont let me store those photos in the same folder that photo station uses. How can i link these two? NAS Support. Moments package and mobile apps? No idea what that will do for photo locations. Then all my phones have folders by date.
The photo packages are prescriptive for their folder locations. Last edited: Jan I found that I had to go into Synology Drive admin console and enable that "photos" folder under Team folder. So now I see the folder in photo station but cant see all the sub folders and cant see any pictures but in the top right there is a "conversion progress" thats been running all night and says total images and counting down.
Do I have to wait for this to finish to see the pictures? Seems to be converting pictures every 10 min. I wasted 3 days waiting for the conversion to finish and I still cant see my pictures!!!!!!!!! Too late now IMO you would be better off moving those photos to a temporary storage folder and beginning again in a more conservative approach. Cobra said:.I am unable to view my shares on my diskstation after my desktop was updated to update I've been in touch with Synology tech support, who tried to help but in the end said it must be a Windows issue.
Well It includes and has been reported by used to fix the issues people saw with before that update was released involving seeing NAS shares etc. I am running version From there I can see it's IP address is x.
This problem results when an administrator, the owner of the file or folder, or a user with the Change Permissions permission for a file or Full Control permission for a folder, changes the access control list ACL on the file or folder.
Some of the changes that could deny a user access to a file or folder they should be able to access include:. The user or group was unintentionally removed from Group or User names on the file's or folder's Security tab.
A conflict between share permissions and NTFS permissions was created when someone changes permissions without examining both types of permissions. Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help, and unmark the answers if they provide no help.
How to use PhotoSync with a Synology NAS?
If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact tnmff microsoft. Looking at posts on the Synology forum seems this one is affecting different update versions in different ways, with no one definitive fix. Is on going since the start of the November update. The second post would be worth a try I would say.
And reboot fixes it Please note it should be used as temporary fix and should be reverted as soon there is more proper solution. Not the exact same issue as you but would be interesting to put Windows 10 on SMB1 and see if it works. However its not running with "Windows ACL" setting for the shares as the volume I have configured on it does not support this.
Maybe there was a change in to enforce a windows ACL share? The reason I say this is I can still access the shares just fine with the evaluation copy of Windows 10 on my laptop.
Did you get any Windows Updates yesterday? Don't suppose the 'magically' fixed it? If still no good perhaps try a clean up of the network interface and config. Again from an admin command prompt. I got the Windows update today, now running ver. But only if I do the following. So I can access the shares but only from "This PC" method Almost there I have no Synology software installed on the PC.

Last Modified: I have attached the screenshots of the Parent folder, "Client - Local" and two of the child folders. I have set the permissions for the parent folder, but it does not seem to propagate to all the child folders, so I have to do this manually.
As there are many of these, I was wondering if you have a shortcut I can try. I've tried to reset permissions from the Synology by first setting "no access", then restarting the Diskstation and then giving permission again- no luck.I have a DS One of my networked computers can access some of the folders I've permissioned for it but not some of the others.
When I try to connect via Explorer I'm asked for a user and password and it doesn't work. I've checked the DSM settings and all the right boxes are checked.
I've tried rebooting both comp and server. The comp, an old laptop, is running XP, but this was not a problem until about a week ago when I rebooted the comp, before then it worked fine. Many thanks for responding, I thought the thread was DOA. Is that necessary? I've found, by accident, that I can give users access without giving them the names of their computers. From her comp she can access everything she's supposed to be able to.
But I have created a unique username for the XP box I'm having trouble with.
How To: Assign permissions for a specific subfolder on Synology NAS
Yes it is. Still stumped after checking out the tutorial. I created a user ID with the same name as the comp, but no change. I can click on some other folders, e. Ourpix, and they open up without a password prompt. But I click on music and it doesn't, I'm instead asked for a username and password and it won't open.
I have the same problem with another folder I created, Miscellaneous. Permissions are granted but I can't access. I'd wondered if there was something peculiar about system default shared folders but that doesn't seem to be the case. I can open up the DSM browser window, using the same username and password to access the DS, then open up Filestation, access my playlist folder, double click and download a playlist, then double click to open up Winamp, but Winamp can't access the files in the folder.
Just to be clear, I assume you mean the username on the NAS is the same as the Windows username - not the computer name? Does the windows username have a password? If so, did you ensure the same password was used on the NAS? I'm out of town for two days and can't offer a screenshot. And, I've tried using either the username or the computer name and it doesn't make a difference. The error message when I try to connect, which I assume is just boilerplate, says something about how I won't be able to connect if the computer already has a connection.
I'm wondering if XP might not be as dextrous at dropping connection handles, or if perhaps it detects two programs connected and balks.
