My Backup Strategy using Synology NAS


So that is my current backup strategy on top of the redundancy offered by RAID. Just to recap, I am using the following features of Synology NAS for file/ content backups:

App Type Purpose
Cloud Station File-level Backing up of files on mobile phones
Cloud Sync File-level Backing up of files to Cloud Provider(s)
Hyper Backup Image-level Backing up of files, app data and system settings to Cloud Provider(s)
Time Machine Image-level Backing up of Macintosh's data

Lastly, do keep your precious data safe. If you find the above a hassle, at least do a periodic data scrub.
