Have to Regularly Delete and Re-Add App

As long as it’s working it’s a nice alternative to storing your files with cloud services. However the iOS integration within the Drive app is very limited and the association between the iOS Files app and the Drive App regularly breaks and displays a “Content Unavailable” error when trying to access Drive-hosted files within iOS files. The only fix when this happens has been to delete (“Remove App”) from the iPad/iPhone and add it again.
I contacted Synology about this and this turned out to be their “fix” as well.
As this has been happing for a year or so I’m disappointed that they don’t seem concerned with prioritizing an actual fix. It’s a shame. Until Drive is as dependable in iOS and iOS Files as literally any other cloud provider it’s not a serious option, just a tease of how good it could actually be to not have to use Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.

Promising direction but...

I’ve used the DS cloud and DS files apps for years. I use DS cloud like Dropbox to keep files in sync between multiple platforms and devices. In order to manage storage requirements on my mobile devices I have one synchronized directory for mobile devices and another for laptops etc. When I need to get to files on the DiskStation that are not in my mobile DS cloud directory, I use DS files.
When I first learned about Synology Drive I hoped it would serve both needs. It allows me to access both mobile and laptop directories or any other directory I setup for synchronization. Drive does not try to sync files between the mobile device and the disk station. It only provides access. This means I can access any file as long as I have a network connection.
I think Synology Drive falls short of a great app because of two missing features though.
There is no way to cache or store any files for offline use. Would like to have the ability to select folders and individual files for offline use. Not the entire sync folder like DS cloud does though.
Synology Drive does not fully support the iOS Files app the way Google Drive and Dropbox do.
If the above features were added, I think I would not have much need for any other cloud sync/storage app.

Needs better integration

While I use Drive because I’ve already committed to the ecosystem with my purchase of my NAS, it is nowhere near as seamless as the subscription based competitors. I need to be able to download a document to my phone and keep it synced as well as be able to edit it in the phone! I have Synology Drive and the Microsoft Excel app. Why can’t I natively load my document to Excel, make changes, and save it to Drive? I can do it with competitors without issue.

Seamlessly syncing & backing up

Work across computers in continuity using the desktop app. It's still your native Windows, macOS, or Ubuntu interface, but any changes you make to a file are automatically synced to other devices as soon as they're connected.

  • Save the disk space and bandwidth of your PC with On-demand Sync1. See all your files in the synced folders, yet they’re only streamed to the desktop when you open them. Of course, you can always exclude certain subfolders, file formats or put a limit on the file size.
  • Still prefer that design you created a week ago? Simply right-click to restore a previous version. Synology’s Intelliversioning algorithm pinpoints the most significant changes over a longer period of time, ensuring that the versions aren’t taken up by all those small recent changes.
  • Enable real-time or scheduled backup of important folders so that you always have a copy in case of accidental deletion. The same versioning protects you from ransomware, too.

Collaborate on documents in real time

Say goodbye to the old days when you and your colleagues take turns to edit a file. With Synology Office, you can all work on the same documents, spreadsheets, or slides simultaneously to get the job done much faster.

  • Supports converting from and to Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint in case you still need to collaborate with external clients.

  • Review changes made by each user if you wish to restore or lock a specific version.

  • Integration with Synology Chat lets you talk to other collaborators directly inside the document.

Streamline cross-office file sharing

For companies that have branch offices in different parts of the world, file sharing can be messy. Synology Drive automates the process by keeping selected folders on different Synology NAS in sync. Employees in each office can then upload or download files from those folders via SMB/AFP at LAN speeds. Learn more
