User Case: “I want to sync NAS to SharePoint site documents library bi-directionally. I would like to set up a sync solution that allows remote users to work on SharePoint while the files can be synced to a home-based Synology NAS.”

SharePoint Online and Synology NAS are two different cloud storage and file-sharing services. Which is better? Synology NAS can help you easily access all your existing files without the Internet. And SharePoint Online is better if you want to access your data from different devices both online and offline. You can choose between SharePoint and Synology to find the best cloud collaboration service for you or your team.

As the user case shows, you can enable Synology NAS SharePoint synchronization to improve the efficiency of your team while securely storing important data in NAS drives. By performing the SharePoint NAS sync, you and your team can easily access NAS files from SharePoint Online and make full use of the collaboration features in SharePoint Online. What’s more, the modifications will be auto-synced back to NAS after editing in SharePoint.
