For those new to Synology, remember that this is just the Drive mobile app. You need to set up a Synology NAS, put your files on it, and install the Drive platform. Then this app will let you access your files anywhere, from any device. Synology Drive is perfect for my needs: it let's me share terabytes of data via intuitive browser and mobile app interfaces, without spending hundreds of dollars a year in subscription fees to have all this hosted on Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.
Loving my new Synology NAS, and this is a great app. Does exactly what it says it will do.
I use it as Google drive replacement. Actually it is much better as works faster
Synology seems to be developing beta apps faster than they can explain their purpose, without ever really finishing any of them. Why do I need a cloud-only client, when I already had DS Cloud, which sync'd ofline copies to my mobile device? If I want cloud-only access without the ability to sync local files and folders to my NAS, why wouldn't I just use DS File?? That's now THREE ways to access files on my NAS, and only ONE of them syncs locally. Clean it up, Syno. This is getting ridiculous.
So, on my cluster, I have Synology Office installed and can create new documents. Am I missing something? I can't seem to get were I need to be with this app. I see the documents I placed here, I can open and edit them; but, I can't create anything new. Help us create. Thank you for the hard work Synology, please keep going with this.
I'm a bit disappointed, I can edit files and it's directly saved in the drive. I have manually uploaded it. It is not what I understand about a drive. Neither there is no synchronize, so I have to use the cloud anyway for this. Which is in this case better, because when I edit smt it's sync automatically. I don't understand the sense of this app at all. It is just like the synology file app with a different layout and group rights
This is the initial release of this app and requires Synology Drive package and DSM 6.1.3 to run.
