  4. 4Secure Sharing

    Tighten security on shares by maintaining control over sensitive information. Disable or enable downloading or copying. Password protect shares, or set an expiration date for access.

Work seamlessly across 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.

Sync on demand

Stream files to your device only when they are requested1 to save local disk space and bandwidth, or pin them to your computer to permanently keep a local copy.

Go back in time

Restore previous file or folder versions directly on your device. Synology’s Intelliversioning algorithm saves space by keeping only the versions with the most significant changes over time.

Back up your files

Protect your data from ransomware attacks or accidental deletion with real-time or scheduled backup of important folders.
