There are three programs in the software bundle included with the DS209+.
You begin to work with your newly bought NAS device by launching Synology Assistant.
When started for the first time, the program proposes to search for new Synology devices. Then you can choose a device, load firmware into it and run a preliminary setup procedure. Afterwards Synology Assistant will allow you to perform certain operations with Synology devices in a visual manner: search for new devices, attach network disks, set up a network printer, etc.
Data Replicator 3
The second program is called Data Replicator 3.
You can use it to make backup copies of data from the remote machine it is installed on to the DS209+’s internal disk. The program interface consists of four screens: a data backup page, a data restore page, a settings page, and a log.
The last program is a remote client for the download manager integrated into the DS209+. It is called Data Redirector.
After typing in the server address you can use this program to manage the list of downloads at the server. The client offers all the management options available on the server but provides a visual interface to them.
All the programs from the software bundle feature a user-friendly interface and are really helpful tools indeed. Surely they add more points to the DS209+’s overall score.
