Version: 1.4.2-1721


(2024-05-21)

What's New

  1. Optimized upload processes now allow for faster uploading of multiple files under 3MB each.
  2. Updated the global file locking function's default scope from "Apply to all applications" to "Apply to specific applications: Microsoft Office & AutoCAD".
  3. Enhanced data resync mechanisms to support normal upload and download activities during the resync phase following an abnormal system shutdown.
  4. Revised file conflict handling to save only the newest file version during unstable network conditions instead of all conflicting versions.

Fixed Issues

  1. Fixed an issue leading to configuration file corruption and sync failures caused by abnormal shutdowns.
  2. Fixed an issue that caused incorrect calculation of version sizes for Hybrid Share folders configured as Synology Drive Team folders.
  3. Improved the retry mechanism for global file locking to accelerate file access.
  4. Fixed an issue where converting a shared folder to a Hybrid Share folder could possibly result in slow or failed conversions under certain conditions.
  5. Fixed an issue that caused mounting failures due to incorrect IP address resolutions from DNS servers when connecting to the C2 server.
  6. Updated the file pinning mechanism in multi-NAS environments to automatically store pinned subdirectories and files locally.
  7. Fixed an issue preventing Hybrid Share package activation due to timeouts caused by shared folders containing more than 10 million files.
  8. Fixed an issue preventing system shutdowns due to failed package deactivation.
  9. Fixed an issue where Hybrid Share folders mounted on multiple NAS devices might appear deactivated when the DSM Control Panel was accessed simultaneously by different users.
  10. Resolved a temporary disruption of file uploads and downloads during snapshot restoration.
  11. Minor bug fixes.

Version: 1.4.1-1512


(2023-08-18)

What's New

  1. Supports single file size up to 768 GB.
  2. Optimized processes to allow for quicker uploads and downloads.
  3. Improved efficiency by changing the file sync mode to syncing privileges exclusively for domain users.

Fixed Issues

  1. Enhanced data resync mechanism for better efficiency upon system anomalies.
  2. Minor bug fixes.

Important Notes

  1. After the update, any Synology NAS with the same Hybrid Share folder mounted will synchronize only domain user privileges. To ensure seamless synchronization, consider updating the package on all mounted NAS clients to version 1.4.1.
