File Sharing

DSM provides fast and secure ways to share your critical digital assets. With File Station, you can share files on your Synology NAS to anyone, and customize access permissions for optimal security. File Station makes it easy to share files across multiple platforms — whether it's Windows®, macOS®, and Linux® computers or mobile devices.

File Station

Your versatile file manager

Share files easily and safely

With one link, you can share files or request file uploads from others. This customizable link allows you share it to specific users, set a password, and specify its validity period.

Access files from anywhere

Explore and organize files using a mobile phone or tablet (Android, iOS and Windows Phone support). Files can even upload to your DiskStation or download to your devices directly.

Centralize file access

With remote folders and public cloud storage (Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive) mounted to File Station, you can access all remote data as if stored locally.

Windows®, macOS® & Linux®

DSM comes with comprehensive support of networking protocols — FTP, SMB2, SMB3 (encrypted), AFP, NFS, and WebDAV — and provides seamless file sharing across Windows®, macOS®, and Linux® platforms.
The Recycle Bin feature supported on AFP, SMB, File Station, and WebDAV, allows you to flexibly decide when to permanently remove the files, according to the different rules.

macOS Finder Integration

With the in-depth integration of macOS Finder, you can use Finder to quickly search the content of indexed documents, photos, and more within mounted folders on your Synology NAS.
