Browsing around my Synology App store yesterday and what did I notice, but they now have Acronis integrated directly and officially supported, not even 1000 downloads on this thing yet. I do not use Acronis personally, But the integration gives me the thought to try it out, especially for mobile devices.
The other one that got my attention was Eynio (https://eynio.com) server which does home automation and tablet control panels utilising web apps. I have not successfully got this working yet *its installed and running at least officially, but I cannot connect to the web interface for some reason. It integrates with a bunch of Home Automation stuff (https://eynio.com/wp/devices/) and it looks like exactly what I have been wanting for a while, now if I can just get into it and make it work
I've just installed my first Synology NAS, a Ds416play, after many years of running Windows Home Server (RIP). I now must face developing a backup strategy for several PC clients which I hope to backup to the Synology NAS. I'm considering the three alternatives, including:
1) The client backup solution provided by Synology, Cloud Station Backup, or
2) The client backup solution provided by MS, namely File History, or
3) The generally popular Acronis solution, True Image 2016.
I do understand that the first two are file level backup strategies while the third is a disk level tool, but I wonder what other advantages or disadvantages have been noted by others here on the forum
Thanks, guys, for helping a newbe to the Synology world. Best... miker

I require some guidance.
I own an HP MediaSmart Server running WHS V1. In addition I have a series of computers which I backup to the server on a regular basis. Recently I upgraded two of then from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I was able to successfully install the connected software and have continued to run backups with no issues. I now need to access some of the backups. When I try to restore (manage) a backup on the server it goes through the normal "opening" process but at the end when the file explorer window pops open, it flashes open momentarily and then closes. I'm guessing this is an issue with Windows 10 and the new File Explorer.
Does anyone have suggestions on how I might proceed to access the backups?
I have an HP E485, PP3 with all the updates. It's working fine, but something happened over the last year when my folder containing files for the connector has disappeared from the Software folder. I have one Win 7 64 bit PC with connector installed and working and that's it. All of the new computers with Win 7 I couldn't install it due to the lack of install files.
I searched the internet and found the WHSconnector.msi and WHSconnector_x64.msi files dated 1/10/2011. however all other files in the folder setup.exe, WHSconnctorinstall.exe etc. are dated 10/7/2009. So if i ran an install, i get an error after it asks me to enter password. BTW, it shows me the correct password tip that i have setup years earlier. When i run troubleshooter, it tells me that the version of the connector i am trying to use is different than the version installed on the WHS server. Attached, please
Any help is much appreciated.
