    Hi, did you find a way to configure DS cloud to sync a folder on your SD card. I have a HTC One M8 running android 6 and I cannot get it to select any existing folders on my SD card

    • Hi Antony, have you tried to access the path /storage/extSdCard/? Here you will find the content of your SD card. Please check this. In my case it worked very well.

    Hi Ferhat, very detailed explanations! thanks.
    One question though: How to link your email address with your caldav calendar on an Iphone?

  4. Francois says:

    Hi Fehrat, when I receive an invitation on my email, if I accept it, I want the invitation to be in my caldav calendar.
    Similarly, when I create a meeting in my calendar I would like to be able to add invitees.
    Thanks for your help,

    • Hi François, I am not sure how an iPhone handles this but every invitation should contain an attached ICS file. What happens when you open that file? If this file is not handled by the iPhone calendar app, you will probably need an additional app. In case of Android it’s like this.
      Thanks, Ferhat

    Hi Ferhat, yes it does content an ics file when I receive an invitation. The challenge starts when I want to create an invitation and invite people… As the calendar isn’t linked with an email account, I can’t do it.

    • Hi François, I got it now but I didn’t use this feature before. A quick test showed me that the invitation could not be received. I have to check that later and will update the article in case I find a way to handle this.

    Humm.. looks like my first post did not go through.

    It was related to François‘ issue that Ferhat was to look into.
    Ferhat, any news related to the calendar and invites ?


    • Hi Michel, thanks for your comments. Actually I didn’t do any further investigation on this. If you guys have any updates please share, so I can update the article.

    Any ideas on how to set up with Thunderbird so that calendar edit from TBird will go to Synology. None of my edits work. Even reopening them in Tbird before syncing shows they have reverted to original
