I tried many Times to get my configuration working, but a have Problems to get it synced in the right way. 

This is my Setup: Mac OS X Server (on the mainoffice) <--> synology Nas (on the mainoffice) <--> synology Nas (homeoffice)

All my Volumes on the Server and the Nas are allready populated (> 1TB). The files and Folders are synced with a different Backup Tool. So the files are the Same on each Client.

I found the following workaround for prepopulated Folders: make the First folder on the Mac OS X Server. I Pause Sync when the Index is ready. On the First Client i make manual Connection (Read-Write on every Client) and wait to Finishing the Index. Then connect.

When i connect the third Client (Nas at the homeoffice) he start to send over 30.000 files to the Server and 600 to the Nas at the mainoffice. The First thing that i am confused about it. Because i had back up all the Data before starting to work with Sync. 

'The mainproblem is on the Mac OS X Server! He cant Download the files. No such file or directory. It seems the Server made mistakes by set up the Database for all his files and Folders.

The next thing is, when i Setup a folder on Sync i chose read and Write for the folder. New folder -> Name "xy example" -> read and Write. When i Click in the Sync web gui on the folder xy example there are two options: deleted files to Archiv and overwrite changed files. But overwrite changed files is not possible to Click on. I have no permissions???

on the First step i can give read and Write permissions but cant change files. I am confused. Can anyone help?

When you first connect pre-populated folders, Sync has to merge them. This is why you see some files to be uploaded/downloaded.

Where, how , when you see this? No such file or directory - well, means that it says - the path to the file or directory cannot be found, check it, make sure it's correct. IF a folder is on a usb drive, or network share, make sure they are not unmounted.

Wait. I thought that you use the Mac's link via "Manual connection" on NAS, rather that adding a new share??? SO, how do you connect the folders actually? 

Grayed out "overwrite" option - is for encrypted RO folder. how can it appear in your setup if you didn't even mention it? 

I'm also confused - how are they actually connected?  To connect all three folders, simply do : add the 1st one to Sync on Mac, click "share", pick RW, copy link. On office NAS, click "Manual connection" paste the link, pick the folder. ON home NAS, click "Manual connection" paste the link, pick the folder.

Hello Helen,

thank you for your replay. I connected the Sync Folders by manual Connection. I started on the Mac OS X Server. There i created the First read and Write Folder in Sync application. Then connect my folder (with the files) from USB Drive to the Sync-folder. I copy the read and Write key and created the folder on my Nas by using the manual Connection. 

The USB Drive on the Mac Server is always on. When i connect the Shared Volume (on the Mac Server) by a Client Mac, i can See, copy or change the Files.

i thought it Must be a permission Problem. Sync can´t change the files on the Server. On my Nas it works.

Can you please tell us where, how , when you see "cant Download the files. No such file or directory" on Mac? Can you make a screenshot of it? 

"Sync can´t change the files on the Server" - do you mean that files, updated on NAS, do not get downloaded to Mac, and you see error "cant Download the files. No such file or directory"? 

Then this might be bad mounted point (check and compare the full path to it Finder and Sync, better do that in Terminal* ), or probably permission (however the error would be different).

*here's short instruction, in Terminal type two commands

cd /Volumes
ls -alh

in folder /Volumes - you shall see your USB listed, as well as permissions
