It's once more like death in the forum from Resilio side. Problems that are set here can only be partially answered. Nobody knows whether Resilio is working on it. And the last update to v2.7.2 was in July 2020. That doesn't make a good impression.

There has been no feedback whatsoever with regard to DSM 7. DSM 7 means a major cut in the rights system and various other directories. If Resilio misses this change, it will be very bad for users with Synology Server. Synology is very popular and more and more Resilio users are joining Syncthing, I get that in the forum there.

We will see.

First of all, you can switch to Resilio Sync for Docker if your NAS supports Docker, which I did.


However, if you had all your files on the directly in ResilioSync on the actual NAS, then it is an issue to somehow get them all into the Docker version, since Resilio Sync is not running to sync them.

I hope Resilio will release an updated version soon - at least when DSM 7 is released officially.

Using Resilio for Docker with the current filesystem environment is not a problem. The issue is if Docker is supported of the related Synology and the performance is not so good as in a native installation.

So, I hope the same.

Hi Andy,


I did not realize that was an easy option.  By default it is starting with a blank slate, but I suppose you are saying there is a way to mount the "real" filesystem inside docker, which makes sense.  I will look into that.  I did see one post through my googling stating that resiliosync was one of the apps planned to be supported for DSM 7, but that may just be Synology's wishful thinking.

I've already done this with Syncthing and recently with Resilio.

First create a group and a user in the DSM that only affect this Docker installation. Connect the user to the group and give the group the related permissions in the folders, you want to include below. Go to the


and read out the PUID and PGID for this, each with a 4 or 5-digit number after the assigned name.

Then download the latest image from resilio / sync: latest and start the image. For the parameters deposit as follows:

Section Environment entrance PUID <-> xxxx and PGID <-> yyyyy

Section Ports fix no. 8888 also outside, maybe also 8888 or other.

Section Volumes as follow:

DS-folder: homes/name_of_user (PUID) <-> mount-path: /mnt/sync/

and for the filesystem include all relevant folders as follow:

DS-filesystem-folder: folder-1 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-1/

DS-filesystem-folder: folder-2 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-2/

DS-filesystem-folder: folder-3 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-3/

DS-filesystem-folder: folder-4 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-4/

DS-filesystem-folder: folder-5 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-5/






DS-filesystem-folder: folder-n <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-n/


Thats it. Start and try .... 👍
