Can I backup my NAS remotely on friends Synology but only I can see those files?

NAS with replication and different users

I’m looking for a home NAS, which allows replication through Internet and different users

I.e. I’ll put one NAS at my home and the other at my parents home. My files will be replicated to their NAS and their files will be replicated to my NAS.
And I’ll see only my files and they will see only their files.

Is it possible? Which NAS out of the box supports this scenario?


Yes, Synology allows to to that.

You will need Hyper backup –

You will need to create a shared folder with only access to your user name. You will be connecting using these credentials.
You can also encrypt the shared folder.
