User Case: How to Sync MEGA Folder Directly with Synology NAS Folder?
Case 1: "I have a DS1817 + 8GB and I often use Download Station to download files from some sources. Now that I have a paid membership to Mega.nz, I would like to know a way to directly download/sync my large folders with my NAS. There are no packages available. The only thing I can find is to use a terminal (I'm not familiar with that program). "
Case 2: "I have backup data on Synology DS115j, MEGAsync 3.6 will sync all data in the cloud. For unknown reasons, MEGA is not syncing data, but all folders are marked green. This has happened many times, is there any solution? "
Case 3: "I've read all the user guides and various articles based on google searches and still can't figure this out, can you help me? I installed MEGAcmd on Synology and connected to my Synology NAS via Windows Powershell SSH. I also successfully logged into my super account, but every sync ends up with "failed to sync folder: not found"."
Can Easily and Directly Perform Synology MEGA Sync?
MEGA or Mega.nz is a cloud storage and file hosting service provided by Mega Limited, a company based in Auckland, New Zealand. The service is primarily provided through web-based applications. The MEGA mobile app is also available for Android and iOS. MEGA is known for its large 20 GB storage space allocated for free accounts, so many users choose to store data on MEGA accounts.
NAS is a dedicated data storage server. It is data-centric, completely separating storage devices from servers and centralizing data management to free up bandwidth, improve performance, reduce total cost of ownership and protect investments. For easier access to data in MEGA, many users choose Synology MEGA cloud sync, and users can directly access these files as long as the device is connected to the Internet.
But whether it is connecting MEGA and Synology NAS, or in the process of synchronizing MEGA and Synology NAS, users will encounter many problems, such as being unable to find the connection entry, connection failure, and sync failure, etc. So, is there a direct and easy way to connect and sync MEGA and Synology NAS?
