Hi,

Firstly apologies for my first post being an ask for help!

I decided to upgrade my external storage solution to a Synology DS918+ to house all of my archived projects, but I'm running in to a little problem setting it up.

I followed Apple's guide to enable shared storage by editing the SMB config, and it no longer gives me the usual error about being an unsupported location, but when trying to create a new library it gives me the error the file "currentversion.flexolibrary" could not be opened because there is no such file.

I've searched around and haven't seen anyone mentioning this whilst setting up an SMB library, so I'm assuming it's something more specific to me.

Using NFS I can get it to work, so perhaps that is the solution. Testing the two I haven't seen a noticeable difference in speed, but would rather use SMB for some reason.

Any help would be great, I'm currently slowly using CCC to copy 8TB worth of library to the NAS. I've verified a smaller library opens and functions correctly over NFS, so if I can get this working over SMB that would be great.

But also, if anyone has knowledge to share on NFS vs SMB I'd love to hear it, I had seen people saying NFS is faster but in my testing they're the same - I am using a USB3-Ethernet adaptor however.

Also I am only using the NAS for easily expandable storage, not to allow multiple editors to access the libraries (at the moment)

Thanks in advance!
