Synology Nas: Cannot See Anything During Add Folder

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I just installed btsync to Synology NAS (DS-211j,DS-212j) @ 9 Aug 2014 through the app source . Here is my install and login procedure:


1. During installation, the appstore will ask some questions and I answered as following:

Devince Name: XXXNAS2 (Same name of the NAS)

Login: admin (Same as Synology Admin login)

Password: <password> (Same as Synology admin login password)


2. Afterward, I go to <ipaddress>:8888 through the chrome, and the btsync required me login again, I typed the same user name and password as point 1 ;


3. After login, see the btsync main screen, and I had tried to click the add folder, and nothing can be selected and added, like the attached screen. Even I added some folders rights to users group also no help. 


Please help me to resolve this issue if anyone have some idea. Thanks.

Same here. I managed to download 1.3 from here;


and it works on my DS213J. However, I also have a DS211+ which is not supported, as apparently, Building of comcerto2k, 88f6282 and ppc854x doesn’t work.

Hi snowboard,

for 88f6282 please use the 88f6281 package. The package is working on 88f6281 and 88f6282 devices. I updated my post:

I found out v1.4.x of btsync have a bug / issue on specify config file with supply the login username and password so cause the btsync spk that download from community not work for most user.

I will write a guide in troubleshooting page to explain how to overcome this issue.

Have you considered manually installing on Synology? I don't know if that will solve other issues, but at least it will enable more timely updates. I've put a manual installation guide for Synology online at:

Your provided guide is useful, thank you very much.


If possible I will and I should not want to perform such procedure to fix my problem and let the DSM manage the packages. However, the fact is the latest version may have this issue on some / many Synology NAS so I need to hack the sync.conf file to accept the EULA. I suggested the synocommunity to remove the login and password creation during install in order to avoid the issue if possible.
