Synology Drive – File Syncing and Sharing

Synology Drive – File Syncing and Sharing

Powerful private cloud storage with no fees

With large storage capacities from one to hundreds of terabytes (depending on your choice of Synology NAS and hard drives), Synology Drive makes files readily available whenever and wherever you need them. Synology makes it possible for every home and office to host your own cloud – with 100% data ownership and no subscription fees. Synology Drive changes the way we live and work, access and share data.

Synology Drive is FREE and works with phones, laptops and more.


Any changes you make to a file are automatically synced to your other devices.  Work across computers in continuity using the desktop app. It’s still your native Windows, macOS, or Ubuntu interface, but any changes you make to a file are automatically synced to other devices as soon as they’re connected.

  • Syncing on demand

    Save the disk space and bandwidth of your PC with On-demand Sync. See all your files in the synced folders, yet they’re only streamed to the desktop when you open them. Of course, you can always exclude certain subfolders, file formats or put a limit on the file size.
  • Go back in time

    Still prefer that design you created a week ago? Simply right-click to restore a previous version. Synology’s Intelliversioning algorithm pinpoints the most significant changes over a longer period of time, ensuring that the versions aren’t taken up by all those small recent changes.
  • Back up your files

    Enable real-time or scheduled backup of important folders so that you always have a copy in case of accidental deletion. The same versioning protects you from ransomware, too.

Collaborate on documents in real time

Say goodbye to the old days when you and your colleagues take turns to edit a file. With Synology Office, you can all work on the same documents, spreadsheets, or slides simultaneously to get the job done much faster. Supports converting from and to Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint in case you still need to collaborate with external clients.

Integration with Synology Chat lets you talk to other collaborators directly inside the document.

Streamline cross-office file sharing

For companies that have branch offices file sharing can be messy. Synology Drive automates the process by keeping selected folders on different Synology NAS in sync. Employees in each office can then upload or download files from those folders via normal file sharing at LAN speeds.
