I have been running my blog out of my house since forever. While at VMware, in addition to my WordPress VM I was running many other VMs in my home lab. Given my job change, I have less of a need for my home lab. In fact, the only VM I had left was my WordPress VM. Given this, I decided to move my blog to my Synology box. Read on to learn more!
As I have discussed in the past, I am a big fan of Synology. So much so, I migrated off of all cloud storage solutions such as Dropbox and onto Synology’s Cloud Station application. To date, this move has been great for me. Recently, I purchased the new MacBook Pro and decided to use Migration Assistant to move all of my data to the new laptop. My goal was to continue using both laptops — one for home and one for travel. Given that I wanted to keep the two laptops in sync as much as possible and given that I primarily use the Desktop and Downloads folders on Mac, I decided to sync the contents to Cloud Station. Unfortunately, doing this always resulted in an authentication error as well as an abnormal status on one of the two laptops. I could re-authenticate, but that would just move the error to the other laptop. In this post, I would like to cover the solution to the problem. Read on to learn more!
To conclude my series of posts on Synology I would like to cover another important aspect of securing your data: HTTPS. In this post, I will show a variety of different locations for which you can enable HTTPS connections. Read on to learn more!
Time machine is a great piece of backup software that comes with Macs. How Time Machine works is that it backs up based on a policy until there is no space left on the destination. When space is depleted, Time Machine deletes the oldest backups. While the process makes sense, it does raise the question of how to backup multiple Macs to the same Synology device. I will cover the process in this post.
Synology offers a variety of solid storage systems and comes with software that offers a wide variety of features. One great feature is the ability to create encrypted folders. In this post, I would like to talk about Synology encrypted folders and what you need to know.
