So, I have Syncthing installed on my Synology NAS (DS418) and my Windows 10 PC. On the NAS, I have syncthing installed on volume 2. But the folder I am trying to sync from my PC needs to be stored on volume3 on the nas. So, I went into the WEB GUI on the NAS, and changed the default path from
~ (Tilde character (~) expands to /volume2/@appstore/syncthing/var.) to
/volume3/Shared But syncthing always tells me there was a problem creating the folder, and that the path doesn’t actually exist, even though I went in and made the “Shared” folder manually.
I’ve tried giving the sc-syncthing group full permissions over everything, creating and giving the
syncthing users full admin permissions (I know it’s not recommended). Editing the permissions of the shared folder and volume 3 to allow the group read/write… And yet it’s still giving me the same errors even after a restart.
Failed to create folder root directory mkdir /volume3/Shared: permission denied Error on folder "Archive" (rmnyi-7mgdf): folder path missing
What do I do? I have the Synocommunity package installed by the way. It’s version 1.2.2-17
