File station and Photo station

Recommended Posts


I have created a shared folder in file station, but if I want to see the pictures from the app DS Photo on my iPad, do I need to add the pictures in Photo station too?

Meaning it will be duplicate files and use double of the storage, one in File station and one in Photo station, am I correct or how should I do?


Thanks in advance

There should be an action to “move” files in DSM as opposed to “copy”.

 If you’re worried about duplicates you can always overwrite, but I always choose skip to verify each file meets my quality standard.

I’m not advanced enough to know if you can run checksums.

Under the main server name I have the shared folder I created and also the folders that Photo Station, Video Station and Music Station created.





/my shared folder I created


I added my pictures to /photo folder, otherwise Photo Station cant read it.


Im working on the Video Station and Plex now, with those you can search for the folder your media is, but I put my movies on /video
