One of the main reasons you set up a NAS server is to store and share files. We have looked at setting up your Synology NAS and adding users. Now, let us look at how you can create shared folders. We are using Synology’s DS920+ NAS, but the process works similarly in most Synology NAS devices. Before you begin, be aware that you’ll need to have admin access to your Synology DSM.

Follow these steps to create shared folders on a Synology NAS:

  1. Log in to your Synology device, and you will be presented with the DiskStation Manager interface, as shown in Figure 1, below. Click the Control Panel icon, shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.
  2. DiskStation Manager

In the next post in this series, we will look at how you can create a shortcut to this shared folder on your Windows computer so that it works like a folder on your computer.
