How to sync Synology Storage with Microsoft OneDrive

Hello,

last week I investigated some new features from Synology DSM 5.1. One of the features is synchronisation to Microsoft OneDrive, Box etc.

Today I want to show you how you can configure the sync. I’m using a Synology DS115j for my test and have a DS1813+ for production.

1. You need to create a new user. I would suggest to create a separet user for the synchronisation.

2. Now you need to create a shared folder for the OneDrive files. I would suggest to create an additional volume too.

3. The user you created to manage the synchronisation musst have Read/Write on the share and on the NTFS / Advanced Share Permissions.

5. After the Plugin is installed you can open it via “Start Menu”.

Depending on your use, that may take a while. Attention!!! During the syncronisation you will notice a high CPU load of you synology.
