Mac & Windows Synchronization

Mac & Windows Synchronization

My question is why is the best way to setup a NAS that plays nicely between Mac and pc in near enough all areas. For instance….

1 Able to share the same documents such as word and excel in the same folders for both Mac and PC.
2, Not limited by file sizes such as fat32.
3, Able to read and write easily from both OS’s (I.e. no NTFS).
4, Able to support time machine backup.
5, Able to remotely log into and utilise easily (i.e. private cloud).

What you looking for a Synology NAS and Synology Drive app. You will be able to synchronize files between your MAC and a PC. You don’t need to worry about file systems anymore because NAS will work as a third party – a middle device with its own file system. The PC and MAC will be only clients. All data actually will live on the NAS and will be synchronized between other devices. You can read and write as you wish. You can also set up PC image backup with Acronis software and Time machine for a MAC with Synology included app. And of course, you can log in remotely and access all files and configuration as you wish.

All you need to choose now is capacity and number of bays.

Acronis True Image is a backup software which will let you backup Computers, Android Phones or Apple iPhones to your NAS. It is an incredible app because not only it can backup few folders, but also an entire image of your computer. This is super important if you need to get your computer restored ASAP after a massive system crash, virus or other disasters (Manual to set up NAS as backup destination). Backing up a mobile device means capturing all of the data – including contacts, calendar, photos, videos and other files – so you still have them if something happens to your smartphone or tablet.
Backup software for mobile devices makes sure you are saving copies frequently, reliably and safely. It automatically produces a backup and makes it easy to restore your files.
