Synology Cloud Drive is an application that works much like DropBox. It connects to and synchronizes a shared folder on our in-house storage device giving you the ability to work offline on a set of files and folders for team collaboration.
First, install the Synology Cloud Drive application from our above.care™ Managed Software Center.
Using Finder or Spotlight open Managed Software Center and search for Synology (1). Then click the Install button (2):
Next, click on the Updates tab-- you should see the system running some updates-- this may take a few minutes if Managed Software Center sees that there are other updates to be done as well.
When all the installations and updates are done, you should see this:
Please note-- if you see a screen like this, you may need to click the Update All button to arrive at the "Your software is up to date" screen shown above.
After the Cloud Drive software is installed, you should see this dialog box. Click Start Now to continue the configuration
In the next dialog box, enter the following information and click Next:
- QuickConnect ID: Z9cpsds4160917
- Your username
- Your password
We're almost done... you need to choose the "source" folder from the Synology NAS Server that will be synchronized to your Mac... click the Pencil ("Edit") to the right of the Synology QuickConnect ID:
On the resulting dialog box, make sure that CloudStationShare is selected in blue (1) and then click the OK button (2)
Back on the Cloud Station Drive dialog box (which should look like this), click the Done button:
There may be one more dialog box, in which you'll need to click OK-- your Mac. You'll now have a new icon in the menu bar, from which you can begin to access the local copy of the shared data.
