Encrypt Shared Folder
Safeguard your private and vital data against theft. DSM offers share-level AES 256-bit encryption to block any unauthorized access attempts to your shared folders. Set up encryption key with high security ensured by smart data check, too. After this is enabled, shared folders are accessible only when the proper encryption key is entered
Privileges Setup
For each shared folder, directly assign privileges to respective DiskStation local users or groups. Just check Read / Write, Read only, or No access, and shared folders will only be accessible as you have permitted. Using "Advanced privileges," you can further manage access privileges via "Disable directory browsing", "Disable modification of existing files", and "Disable file downloading". Authorized users can modify privileges for folders, sub-folders, and individual files using File Station. What's more is you can create NFS rules for every shared folder to enable or deny access. Aside from the privilege setting, an advanced mounting option known as "asynchronous" lets you enjoy enhanced I/O performance when mounting a shared folder through NFS

User

Assign Access with Trust
The user management interface enables you to create, edit, or delete users having access to the DiskStation. Assign varying levels of privileges to family members and friends. DSM automatically creates a "home" folder for each user account. This not only gives each user a private space to store data, but also cuts out the time and effort spent to repeatedly create shared folders for all accounts
Manage It Well
The "Import Users" function lets you create a large number of user accounts with speed and efficiency. Just list users in a text or Excel file, and upload it onto DiskStation. Additionally, you can quickly search for users by typing names into search field and proceed for further settings. Plus, Password Strength is customizable with various criteria and can be applied to all user accounts to create a more secure environment

Volume

With hard drives installed on DiskStation, you are able to create volumes for storage and sharing of files. DSM's Storage Manager permits you to arrange various types of storage volumes and easily create one that best suits your data protection requirements. Multiple volumes can even be created on one RAID for improved storage space arrangement and future expansion
Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR)
Intelligent volume type optimizes volume size when combining hard disks of differing sizes. SHR is capable of providing 1-2 hard disks with fault-tolerance data protection. When more or larger disks are inserted, space is expandable. Manual configuration of volume type is also available. DSM offers RAID-protected volume types (2-4 way RAID 1, RAID 10, RAID 5, RAID 5+Spare, and RAID 6), in addition to volume types that don't have data protection (Basic, JBOD, and RAID 0)
Fast and Efficient SHR Volume Creation
Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) defies the typical restrictions on building a volume. The SHR provides time-saving and efficient volume creation. For example, a 10TB volume creation can be reduced from 9.5 hr to an amazing 30 min. Plus, you can even begin editing files during the volume building process. The SHR prioritizes the file system for you, so you can access and move the volume creation process to the background

External Hard Drives

Synology DiskStation enables you to fully use all your storage devices. Simply plug external hard drives into the USB or eSATA ports on the DiskStation and you'll be able to easily share storage space across network. Alternatively, use the hard drives as a target for server backup. Synology DiskStations support the following external hard drive formats: EXT3, EXT41, FAT, FAT32, and NTFS

File Station

Bring on Native Experience of File Management
File Station functions as the file center that's embedded in DSM for all file navigation and management. It requires no learning curve to edit or move files around. You simply extend your familiar Windows or Mac file management experience onto File Station. Via "drag-n-drop" operation, transfer files easily, between folders within DSM or directly from your computer onto DiskStation. Say goodbye to the tedious uploading process for good
Locate Files Quickly and Easily
You can create "My Favorites" folders for shortcuts to files you access frequently. Or, if you are unsure of a location, filter through the large pool of data and easily find the file you seek. With the file name indexed design, data retrieval speed is accelerated. You can type in things like key words, updated time, or file owner to find the result you want in a matter of seconds
Immediate File Viewing
Large collections of videos, photos, and documents can often annoy you when they are all buried within your folders. DSM provides Photo Viewer, Video Player, and preview function for editing to make the process quick and painless
Google Docs Support
Access files within the cloud using Google Docs. Preview documents with Google Docs service. All formats supported by Google Docs are now capable of being opened for previewing in your web browser, including Adobe PDF, PowerPoint, Word, Excel and other popular formats
Photo Viewer
Using this tool, you can locate the image you want instantly. Preview your pictures with EXIF and XMP information, adjust photos by rotating and zooming in or out, and even begin a slide show
Video Player
Simply right click on a video and instantly preview it within Video Player if you have VLC player installed. Video Player enables you to watch videos with various aspect ratios and also supports embedded and external subtitles
On-the-Spot Photo Editing
Along with the convenience afforded by File Station, you can enjoy the ability to edit your photos directly in File Station via Pixlr Editor and Pixlr Express. The steps are easy: Just right click on a photo and call up the app you want, and then you can immediately start editing. Get the photos ready for sharing and send them back to your DiskStation
Share Files with a Private Link
You will now be able to share files with private links. Directly assign private links to files that are ready to be shared, and set parameters for valid access. No DSM account is necessary. This really comes in handy for one-off file sharing scenarios
Secure and Instant Access
Go straight to File Station via individual log-in page accessible by typing in a direct address on a browser tab. This saves you time, and since now people won't see the inside of your DSM, your DiskStation is safe and sound. File Station supports HTTPS for even more secure and private access

FTP

Easy FTP Server Setup
Synology DiskStation eliminates the requirement of sophisticated FTP knowledge for file sharing over the web. The easy and step-by-step UI guides you through the FTP setup process. With a few simple clicks, DiskStation is prepared to function as FTP server for file sharing
Advanced FTP option
DSM provides advanced FTP settings for enhanced FTP access control. You can assign a particular port number, limit maximum connections from each IP, allow anonymous account logins, manage file transfer bandwidth, enable only SSL / TLS encrypted connections, and see log records of file transfer activities

iTunes Server

Play music with iTunes
Play music stored on DiskStation via iTunes. DiskStation can function as an iTunes server, allowing you to share music within a local network. With iTunes installed on your PC or Mac computer, just enable the iTunes service in DSM and iTunes will recognize the DiskStation under shared list
Smart Playlist

Personalized Gallery and Blog
Personal taste is an essential aspect of sharing. Photo Station offers theme customization for your personal photo gallery and blog. The control panel pops out on the top of the screen for you to view instant effects of each theme designer after you click another one.

        Comments about Synology DiskStation DS112j Budget-Friendly 1-Bay NAS Server For Home Users:

        I bought this to backup 2 MacBooks with Timemachine. Installed a WD Red hard drive and installed Synology OS in about 45 min. After using this for one week the Timemachine backups are working over Wi-Fi with the NAS connect to the router.
        Just a note with set-up for Timemachine backups. Set up just one Timemachine folder regardless of the number of Mac's backing up. Each Mac will automatically create its own folder in the Timemachine folder. The Synology OS will also only let you give one folder the permissions for Timemachine (but that's not very clear until you try).
