Android + Synology Drive sync

Post by guanlisheng »

Device: Android 13, with Syncthing Fork as the Syncthing client installed on it
Laptop: Windows 11, running Synctrayzor (to help with the complexity that is a first time Syncthing setup)
Other setup: Synology DSM 220+ NAS, running Syncthing server

Experiment 1: Use MMex on Android to sync directly with Synology server
Easy to setup. But disadvantage - if you have no Wifi/cell/network access you can't open your money file (this has been handy for me to open offline historically while travelling, or even during a work commute - use that 1h on the train to update finances, but network access is flaky at best, so offline and sync later is key for me
Can access Synology directly - AS LONG AS you have something like Synology's DS File app also installed. Use the filebrowser in MMex to choose your NAS via DSFile and then just go find your file on your NAS and open it
Editing, then hitting Synchronize button to save back to the NAS was hit and miss. Sometimes a cannot sync - conflict, both files have been modified error occurred (though no conflict was present in actuality); sometimes it reported success but the file was NOT updated on the NAS.
