Synology NAS - Part 3

Date: 14th April 2017

Duration: 48:32

Show ref: SCOM0621

The third and final part of the current series on setting up and using a Synology NAS (Network Attached Storage) device.

Once you've started to store lots of important data on your NAS, you'll want to be sure that your data is safely secured with an offsite backup.

Synology Cloud Station ShareSync allows you to sync your important files with another Synology NAS, or you can use Cloud Sync to backup your files to a third-party cloud service like DropBox, BackBlaze, Google Drive, Box and many other services. In this episode, we demonstrate setting up and using both of these important packages.

If your primary reason for wanting a NAS is for it to act as a media server, we also demonstrate the initial setup, configuration and ongoing maintenance of Plex Media Server - installed directly on your Synology NAS.

Finally, we take a look at the surprisingly powerful Synology Surveillance Station, a free suite of utilities that turn your Synology NAS into a video recording hub for home or business security.

We hope you've found these Synology NAS tutorials useful and we'll revisit the topic in the future. If you have any specific areas of configuring or using a Synology NAS you would like us to cover in future shows, please let us know.

Date: 27th July 2013

Duration: 27:58

Show ref: SCOM0410

Following on from last week, I complete my look at an extremely popular and fascinating "hobby" - Genealogy. That's the formal name for the addictive pastime of researching your family tree. It's never been easier with the vast of data now available online, and a host of services and applications for Mac, PC and iOS.

In this week's show I take a look at the Mac application Family Tree Maker and examine how to sync with your online family trees in Ancestry.com, as well as taking a look at the much improved printing features in the Mac app.

Researching Your Family Tree On Your Mac

Date: 20th July 2013

Duration: 28:20

Show ref: SCOM0409

This week, I take a look at an extremely popular and fascinating "hobby" - Genealogy. That's the formal name for the addictive pastime of researching your family tree. It's never been easier with the vast of data now available online, and a host of services and applications for Mac, PC and iOS.

One of the problems is knowing where to start and understanding how to access the different information sources. For my needs, I found that all this was resolved by using Ancestry.com (or in my case Ancestry.co.uk). This is a paid service (with a 14 day free trial) that pulls all the information sources together and gives you easy access. It also does a lot of the leg work for you by analysing your family tree and delivering your automated "hints" to speed up the searching process.

In this week's show I take a look at the Ancestry.co.uk web service and demonstrate just how easy it is to get started.

But be warned, it is highly addictive!

Researching Your Family Tree on your iPad

Date: 20th July 2013

Duration: 15:18

Show ref: SCOI0120

Following on from this week's Mac show, I take a look at an extremely popular and fascinating "hobby" - Genealogy. That's the formal name for the addictive pastime of researching your family tree. It's never been easier with the vast of data now available online, and a host of services and applications for Mac, PC and iOS.

In the Mac show I take a look at the Ancestry.co.uk web service and demonstrate just how easy it is to get started. In this iOS show, I take a look at the Ancestry iOS app, allowing you to access your Ancestry account and update and manage your Family tree from your iPad or iPhone.

But be warned, it's as highly addictive on the iPad or iPhone as it is on the Mac, perhaps even more so!
