Synology DSM: Can't see Resilio Sync in "shared folders"

Recommended Posts

I've got a DS218+ and I've successfully gotten Resilio up and running using the guide. The only issue is that I can't see the Resilio Sync folder in the "shared folder" section of DSM, not can I set up the Resilio Sync folder to be shared over AFP/NFS/Samba etc.

Is is possible to do this? I would imagine it has something to do with the rslsync user (which I also can't see in DSM)

I'm wondering the same. 

I have successfully managed to sync på Android to my Synology. But I can't view the files on the NAS.
If I sync the backupfolder to my PC I can see them.

I posted on Reddit and got a suggestion that fixed the issue:

You have to create the shared folder first via the DSM dashboard, then set up Resilio and tell it to use that shared folder.

I had already synced 100s of GBs of data to the Synology over Resilio, so I didn't want to have to do that all again. My process was:

  • Uninstall Resilio
  • Create a new "Sync" folder (different name to the default "Resilio Sync" folder that Resilio sets up initiall) via the DSM dashboard
  • Get SSH access to the Synology and log in. Copy everything from the old "Resilio Sync" folder to the new "Sync" folder
  • Reinstall Resilio, making sure to choose the "/volume1/Sync" folder during setup, not "/volume1/Resilio Sync" folder
  • Connect all your folders in Resilio, re indexing all the existing data.

This worked OK for me, but YMMV
