Finally getting around to setting up net drives on the NAS.

Finally getting around to setting up net drives on the NAS. And next will be a set s of backups for each PC and for Seconds. First though it wants to update its operating system.
#Windows10 #Synology #NAS


  1. ...And I've sort of figured it out, after a bit of fiddling and mystery (due to changes in the Home Group) I figured out the network address of the NAS. My current networked drive of N: is pointed to \\LAS-WIN-MEDIA\NETWORKED\ which means that it's on the Media PC. And because I called my NAS RainbowHaven, I guessed the network address to be \\RainbowHaven\ and sure enough, it was!!!

    There's a whole bunch of directories off that but I suspect the one to use as a root for new N: drive is \\RainbowHaven\home\ (which currently has Drive and Test under it). There's also \\RainbowHaven\music, \\RainbowHaven\photo and \\RainbowHaven\video, and I suspect I'll be using those eventually.

    Small steps, eh?

  2. Home will change based on who you are logged in as. If you log in as someone else such as administrator it will seem to be empty. Not usually an issue for home users, but work environments use this.

    Its also a good idea in a home network to log in as a low level user when you may be exposed to nasty stuff via surfing and email. And use the administrator level login for backups and installing

  3. Hmm, that could be problematic. I suppose then I should move those common files to \\RainbowHaven\Networked\

    Thinking back there's always only been me on the network and my login's always been admin. I should read up on how to separate the two. Maybe I should create a new admin called Root (or something) and downgrade myself?

  4. Ha - have more questions!

    I was just about to setup a new directory under the root - Networked - using the Synology File Station App, and move the contents from the \\RainbowHaven\Home\Laura Ess\Networked (you were right) to a newly created shared version under the root folder of the NAS (like \\RainbowHaven\Common\). But then again maybe I should leave most of the stuff in the Laura Ess version anyway! I mean, if I do have guests here (less often now) I don't necessarily want them to access everything.

    Also, I got to the point of creating that directory, and the app gave me a choice between a specific drive (the largest) or using SHR (their) RAID equivalent). Which in your experience using a NAS would be most useful?
