I've found synology and qnap to have rather robust syncing capabilities. I'm curious as to whether anyone has synced the same directory with two different NAS. We're talking about a few million files, but not many modified or created per day.
In my testing it has worked well, but in production it could be another story. The hope is that both NAS will stay in sync with dropbox, regardless of whether you make a change in dropbox or either NAS.
Anyone ever try this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
We have one NAS box where we have created shared folders. I want to sync eveything from these shared folders to Dropbox or kind on automatic increment copy to dropbox run every few hours.
As its a NAS device so we cant install dropbox on this hardware device.
Any way to do that?
Thanks for posting in our Community @jaskaran!
NAS and other network shares are not supported by Dropbox. There are a few ways to have this working for you but it is risky.
You can read the following topics in the Community about this and even upvote the feature requests for NAS.
P.S. Merging your topic to this similar discussion, where Daphne explains more as to why NAS and Dropbox don't "communicate" and also provides a Dropbox alternative.
Hope this helps!
